“The largest glacier in Argentina is waiting for you to live a unique and unforgettable experience. Enjoy El Chaltén, have fun in the national trekking capital.”

Patagonia Aventura

Patagonia Aventura offers the possibility of knowing and exploring the Viedma glacier – the largest glacier of Los Glaciares National Park.

The Viedma glacier allows you to experience a trekking on it morrein (península) having amazing  views of different perspectives on the Glacier,  or just sailing the lake visiting the front wall of the glacier from where you can take a good look at the breathtaking Viedma glacier’s wall. The most remarkable characteristic of this glacier is its particular morphology; its location among the mountains -the irregularity of the surface along which it slides down- cause this glacier to have more fractures; and this generates caves, sumps, cracks and walls.
