5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2014 NEW

did the cruise trip in April 2010, it gives a panoramic view of the glacier. did feel the power of our mother nature when in front of them, but didn't feel much when i went to the glacier in New Zealand in 2012. the water has a amazing blue color, so beautiful. must go!

I found the Lago Argentino to be an amazing place! A lot of glaciars, and in the Laguna a lot of flamingos and wild geese!

Lago Argentino is the largest lake of Argentina, closest City is Calafate.The lake is part of Los Glaciares National Park. The main attractions in the area are the glacier of Perito Moreno and Upsala glacie! They are a MUST SEE attraction and are very worth while the money of a day excursion!
