Experience the awesome power of the titanic wall of ice

The star attraction of Argentine Patagonia, this colossal glacier is surrounded by snow-capped mountains and verdant forests and sits within the huge Lago Argentina. It is best accessed on day trips from the ramshackle town of El Calafate, 50 miles away, crossing the barren Patagonian steppe. Upon arrival, elevated walkways provide visitors with sweeping panoramic views of the glacier, whilst boat trips bring you up close and personal with the giant wall of ice. The numbers are mind-boggling;  3 miles wide, 19 miles long, 700 metres deep and a surface area of 97 miles. Yet they don't quite do it justice and the only way to truly understand the awesome power and incomprehensible size of the glacier is to survey it for yourself. The thunderous sound and exhilarating sight of huge pieces of ice breaking off, then floating away as icebergs is truly unforgettable.
