In the realm of glaciers, the southernmost part of Argentina we find The Calafate and The Chalten, the entrance gates to this realm of ice and towering mountains. The ice dominates the surface, as one who has conquered a land, its 47 glaciers extend relentlessly on the ground, almost impenetrable, marking an area that belongs only to these incredible mass of frozen water. Of all these huge blocks of ice, Perito Moreno is the most famous and one of the most imposing.

Not only can you watch this majestic ice mass, there are also activities for everyone in this remote area, such as hiking trail on the ice, or going through its icy waters to observe the environment, climbing massif Fitz Roy, these are some of the activities you can do in the land of glaciers.
For whale watching you can leave from Puerto Pyramids and get on a boat to see this mamal just a few metres away. When you get on one of these boats, your skin will feel the cool breeze mariona from the southern sea, where marine life blossoms thank to the annual migrations of marine species. Indeed, taking this tour can be one of the most magical and beautiful moments of our trip through Patagonia. These huge whales attract tourists from all around the world and everyone wants to live this unforgettable experience being as close as possible to one of them.
