I've seen glaciers in Canada, the US, and the alps, and this one comes out on top. You can get so close to it via the boardwalk. Go early and there are fewer people. Go later and the afternoon temps will probably give you more...More

This is definitely one for your bucket list. The views both from the boat and from the walkways are stunning and will take your breath away. The facilities are excellent and make access very easy and well worth the cost.

I have seen many glaciers. This one reigns supreme. It is just amazing - it's size, it's colour, the noise it makes - everything is just extraordinary. We went to Iguazu Falls later in our trip and that was amazing too, but for me Perito...More

This was a highlight of my 10 day visit to beautiful Patagonia. The glacier itself is absolutely stunning and huge. Up close its the prettiest translucent blue colour. I was lucky enough to capture it calving on film, so loud and dramatic. You get fantastic...More
