  • This glacier is visited an excursion which is called rivers of ice. What you do not have to hire the tour, is that for safety reasons, due to large landslides which has the glacier being in retreat, the authorities do not allow the approach to it. On the other hand, if there are navigation near the icebergs that exist in the arm Upsala of the Argentine Lake, Ojala touch les a good day, with little wind, because the cabin of the catamaran will always filled, and to take pictures there are to go out to the deck.
