This was the highlight of our trip to Argentina - the chance to get up onto a glacier, to gaze into the crystal blue water, and to have a special treat of whiskey on the rocks with glacial ice was fantastic. Don't miss this!

Los Glaciares National Park is one of the most fascinating places I´ve ever been to. It´s in the province of Santa Cruz, Argentina. The place I liked the most was the village of El Chaltén. I had the chance to walk on the surface of The Torre Glacier. One of the most fascinating experiences I´ve ever had.

Agree with the reviewers from Montreal. A nice parklike walk through trees and flowers in downtown El Calafate. Some significant historical facts about events and people referenced in outdoor sculptured displays and plagues. Inside the park office was a book that was very informative on the history of the National Park, the glaciers, wildlife and birds. Great to see if... More

Interesting to see the different trees explained, a nice parklike walk while in downtown El Calafate, funky displays of Perito Moreno, Darwin and such made out of fiberglass and recycled materials, a few clunky pieces of metal and there you go… You've been! Hope this review was helpful!!!
