Parque Nacional los Glaciares Patagonia South America!

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?

  1. Cindy, the pictures are glorious and magnificent. Love the ice. It is beautiful. I definitely would love to see this in person.

    I hope you don’t mind if I reblog your link on my reblog page?

    1. Judy, thank you so much. Much appreciate. The environment out here is just glorious! Very hard for me to capture the beauty of the desolate and vast steppe. Cheers to you!

  2. I came back to spend more time looking through these fantastic photographs. I mean wow Cindy they are some of the most amazing – to be that close to the glaciers offers views that most of us will never seen. Your travel is our gift – thank you for sharing. Mary

    1. You are most kind, and yes the glacier was absolutely incredible and the catwork allowed one to walk close to the glacier for miles. It calved about every 30 minutes. Remarkable!
