  • This is one of the easier glaciers to hike to in the area and probably part of its popularity. Like most of the hikes in this area you don't actually hike to the glacier but rather the opposite side.....  more

  • The trail to glaciar is far from El Chaltén (37 km in ripio road). The last 13 km is an experience on the lunar surface. Craters, holes and bumps. They want to sell the entrance ticket, so they lie...

  • B e a utifull place, is about 23km north from el chalten (which is the only downside) near "Lago del desierto". Is an hour hike that is not Hard and you will enjoy the hole ride. If you hire the tour guide, and you like relax with a great view, i would recommend to take more than the 2 hours tour.
  • Breve passeggiata di 40 minuti (qualche salita ripida) e si arriva allo spettacolare laghetto del ghiacciaio. Si pagano 300 pesos per entrare (una delle tante follie argentine)
  • Para acceder al glaciar hay que abonar AR$ 300 por encontrarse dentro de una propiedad privada. Luego hay que hacer una caminata en ascenso, pero corta, de 45 minutos aproximadamente a través de un bosque húmedo. Al llegar la vista es increíble
  • Petite randonnée et peu d'effort pour la vue qui vous attend en haut ! Le mec est d'un bleu magnifique. J'ai adoré !
