Itinerary

Day 1 El Calafate Argentino Lake, discovered in 1873, is the southernmost of the four water sheets produced by the Pleistocene Glaciation. With its fjords and fingers it covers 935 sq mi, and is considered one of the most breathtaking lakes in the world. The Perito Moreno Glacier is an imposing river of ice, 2.7km (1.7 mi) wide by 55m (180 ft) high, which descends from the continental ice field to the Canal de los Tempanos. Los Glaciares National Park, the most renowned in Argentina, was created in 1973 to preserve this vast glacier area, and is home to the Upsala Glacier and the incredible Onelli Bay.
