(7,500+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
Enjoy breathtaking views of some of the world's most spectacular ice fields at Parque Nacional Los Glaciares. The expansive national park, which shares a border with Chile, contains 47 glaciers, with 30 percent of its total area covered by ice. Thanks to well-developed trails and viewing platforms, you can see some of these glaciers up close, as the raw mechanics of nature drive the ice ever so slowly towards its destination. Don't miss the awe-inspiring Perito Moreno Glacier, where you're likely to hear thunderous crashes as chunks of the glacier break off and fall into the water. Put Parque Nacional Los Glaciares at the forefront of your travel plans using our El Calafate trip builder.

  • Reach this place involves a real effort. At more than 5 hours from buenos aires. Three hours of the hostel in El Calafate. but to come and observe an imposing mass of blue ice.

  • Well, the views from the park walks are fabulous and up close to Perito Moreno Glacier. The modern steel walkways allow each person to go as they please with many quiet overlooks. There are stairs but...  more »
  • Don't forget to do the trekking excursion. It is demand media... not to say that you do not have to walk... but not is sooo much. It is worth what you pay for the experience of being in the middle of the glacier.
