  • NAH COMUNICACION
“It was one of the most beautiful views I had in my life. I couldn`t stop watching all that ice, like a frozen sea. From time to time, pieces of ice fell in the river, making a storm sound. Wonderful!”
Thoroughly Enjoyed!

“Hello Maria and Good Morning Clara & Carolina We've now been back in New Zealand for more than a week and it still seems a bit as though the past 3 weeks have all been a dream!! We had an absolutely fantastic time and I can assure you that all of the group thoroughly enjoyed their experience in your diverse country ! And it's all thanks to you at 'Team Across South Amercia' facilitated first by Letitia and then Carolina!! Everything you did for us worked seamlessly and that was due to the extra effort you applied to the organisation of every last detail We very much appreciated the professionalism and friendliness of all of your guides and transfer drivers from Day 1 until we arrived at EZE to come home. Too many outstanding things to mention individually but many, many thanks for everything you did for us and if you have an 'official' questionnaire that needs to be filled out please send it to me saspo and I will get it back to you by return Clara, it was great to meet you, albeit briefly, and if you are married now we hope everything went wellif not , then we hope that you have a wonderful day when it happens and we can one day meet here in Auckland or in BA!! Carolina, a pity that we weren't able to get together but we hope that you are now 100% and definitely not still confined to bed!! Our very best wishes for the birth of your baby and I know at some time I will be back in BA so hopefully we may have an opportunity to meet then Or maybe you can get down here Happy Easter to all of you!”
A very beautiful place

“We travelled to Patagonia in the group, departing November 16th 2015. I had waited a long time to visit and was not disappointed. There was a lot of travelling to do, but it is such a vast area, this was ineviatble and the long days by bus were limited to two on rough roads. Fortunately, the weather was good and this only enhanced the stunning scenery. Generally, the accommodation was good, Calafate is worth mentioning as I thought the accommodation was exceptional and staff extremely friendly- and had the best room views from my perspective. The activities were well considered and there were lots of opportunities to stop and admire your surroundings. Most memorable will always be the long walking days, because there was no rush and they took you to places of incredible beauty. Buenos Aires was an interesting city, with hidden gems for us, which included an area to have luch and watch tango in the day time. I would struggle to find fault with this trip, only that it would have been easy to extend and stay for longer.”

Los Glaciares National Park

Things to do in the Los Glaciares National Park

There is no shortage of activities in Los Glaciares National Park. The perfect destination for lovers of the great outdoors, its main attractions are all natural and involve some physical activity. Nonetheless, there are plenty of boat tours available for those who prefer to take it easy.

  • The glaciers

Viedma Glacier boat tours

The most popular attraction in the park is the Perito Moreno Glacier. Visitors can take a boat to its immense icy wall and watch chunks of ice crash into the milky water in front of it. Thrill-seekers should consider doing an ice trekking expedition across the face of the glacier. Trekkers will get the chance to explore icy caves and lagoons as they traverse Perito Moreno.

Other glaciers worth visiting include the Upsala Glacier, Spegazzini Glacier and Viedma Glacier. These glaciers will have smaller crowds than Perito Moreno but are more difficult to access.

  • Mount Fitz Roy & Mount Torre
Mount Fitz Roy in Patagonia

Mount Fitz Roy is reflected in a pool of water

Situated in the very North of the park, Mount Fitz Roy and Mount Torre are the two most formidable mountains in Argentinian Patagonia; astounding to behold and notoriously difficult to climb. Most visitors will not attempt to reach their summits. But, there are numerous easier day hikes and multi-day treks in the vicinity of the peaks. These usually start in the village of El Chaltén.

  • Lago Argentino

There is nothing quite like the blissful tranquility that surrounds a glacial lake. The misty water of Lago Argentino, Argentina’s largest lake, is completely unique and works well as a backdrop to your photos. There are a variety of boat tour options to explore the lake as well as walking trails around the lake.

Highlights 

  • Ice trekking along the top of the Perito Moreno Glacier
  • Rugged landscapes boasting virtually untouched nature
  • Hiking through the forest to Laguna de los Tres
  • Sailing cruise of Lago Argentino
  • Trekking along the South Patagonian Ice Cap

Lowlights

  • Visiting the park is expensive as are all the tours and activities once you're inside
  • Transportation can be a challenge as the road conditions here are bad and the local population is small
  • The weather can be extreme and prone to change at a moment’s notice

Best time to visit

The best time to visit Los Glaciares National Park is from December to February. This is the Southern Hemisphere summer. If you can’t get away during these months, November and March are usually reasonable in terms of weather. Outside of this window is not recommended for travel as the rain and snow make many of the attractions inaccessible.

How to get there

From Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, you can fly to El Calafate directly. There are multiple flights per day, serviced by LATAM and Aerolineas Argentinas. Once in El Calafate you will need to take a bus from the bus terminal to the entrance of Los Glaciares National Park.

Recommended length of stay

It is possible to do Los Glaciares National Park as a day trip from El Calafate. This will give you enough time to do one activity (the Perito Moreno Glacier for example). However, in order to make the most of everything the park has to offer it is better to spend 2–3 days there. This will give you a chance to see multiple attractions and to really immerse yourself in the beautiful nature.

Accommodation types available

The majority of the accommodation available is in El Calafate. There are numerous hotels, homestays and estancias (rustic lodges in the countryside). Within the park there are plenty of designated camping areas, particularly near Lake Viedma and Lake Argentino.

Permits

There are no permits required to enter the park but you will need to pay an entry fee of roughly USD 28*. You will need to acquire permits for certain climbing routes and fishing.

*Note: Permits are as per 2017 pricing.

Good to know

  • The weather in Patagonia is unpredictable so pack for rain, snow, wind and sunshine. We recommend you find out the best time to visit Patagonia before making plans.
  • It is important to protect the nature here so if you decide to camp, make sure you take all your litter with you when you leave.
  • Tours can all be booked once you are inside the park.
  • Accommodation can fill up in El Calafate during the high season so it is a good idea to book in advance.

Los Glaciares National Park is the pride and joy of Argentina’s nature scene and is always a hit with visitors from all over the world. So, book a trip to Argentina, grab your hiking boots, put on some warm clothes and get ready to discover the icy fields of Patagonia.
