  • A miracle of nature and a trip we so look forward to. The place is even more beautiful and dramatic than we expected. The sound of the ice blocks falling in the water is both amazing and frightening.....  more »
  • One of the most wonderful places in argentina. An hour trip from el calafate. There are four different pasarelas to follow. One with better views than the other. Nature at its best.  more »
  • There are not enough adjectives to explain the natural beauty of the glaciers and the park. This definitely belongs on everyone's bucket list. If you have walking problems you won't be able to see...  more »
  • Pretty much the bottom of the world...
  • This place is amazing! (And cold!) it’s fun ,beautiful, full of snow! and very! Very! Very! Cold! But........ the service at the hotel (Hosteria Helsingfors) isnt the best.....
  • Took a one-day tour. unforgettable memory to walk on the glaciers.
  • There are no words to describe the expensive of standing in front of the glacier. If you are lucky you will get a sunny day and the ice will get it's deep blue and purple colour. Breathtaking seeing huge pieces falling from the from wall of the glacier
  • Don’t overpay for the expensive tours — just take a bus, pay the park entrance fee and see the glacier on your own (the hotels where you’ll be staying might be trying to sell these tours to you). It’s better to buy a bus ticket one day in advance to avoid queueing as there might be crowds at the station, especially during high season. While at the park, you can also buy a boat trip to see the glacier at the close proximity. But it’s not necessary, the good views are accessible from the walking trails.
