On this trip you'll visit the Los Glaciares National Park in Argentine Patagonia.

These huge glaciers are undoubtedly one of the most celebrated sights in Patagonia. Their magnificent sparkling white ice pours into the Canal de Los Tempanos as huge icebergs calve and collapse abruptly.

You'll stay in El Calafate and appreciate a relaxing visit in this prisitine area. This trip is recommended as an extension to the Torres del Paine trek in nearby Chile.

Season: October - April
