The Glaciers National Park is in Calafate Patagonia. The Hielo Continental (ice cap) covers approximately 8000 square miles. The National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The Perito Moreno Glacier shown in these photos is 2 miles wide and rises 165 feet above the surface of Lago Argentina. It is a spectacular sight!
Here is the Glacier calving!
Here is more, with a Condor Flying!
The vast majority of non-Southern Amercan toruists come by tour bus, which loses you the oppportunity to drive at leisure all over the park, seeing everything, without a handler and people you don’t know. We flew into Calafate and rented a car and can visit gorgeous Pataglonia on our own. Highly recommend.
How can ice be so beautiful?
