A breathtaking landscape of impressive glaciers descending from the continental ice field: that’s Los Glaciares National Park, a World Heritage Natural Monument.
Thirteen glaciers on the Eastern side break into huge towers which plunge into the waters of lakes Viedma and Argentino. Tertiary granite elevations covered with thick Andean forests frame this monumental natural show. The Perito Moreno Glacier can be admired right from the mainland, or when navigating or hiking on the ice itself.
Within 3 hours from Calafate, and still in the territory of the reserve, El Chaltén, at the foot of Mt. Fitz Roy, is considered the national capital of hikers and attracts nature lovers from all around the globe. For adventure travelers prepared to –literally– go the extra mile, drive North along the Andes on a multi day expedition along mythical Route 40, staying at true Patagonian Estancias which will reward you with once-in-a-lifetime remote landscapes such as Lake San Martin and hidden jewels as the small Perito Moreno National Park.
