... up a snack to eat. As we walked into town, it reminded me a lot of Banff. There a many outfitting shops, cafes, and restaurants everywhere, including many different souvenir shops. The town had a rustic feel to it. Since it was siesta time, only some of the shops were open with the rest reopening around 16:00 or 16:30. After walking around for a few hours, I grabbed some food at the supermarket for dinner and headed back to the hostel for the ...

The speed of this glacier means that even the guides have no firm idea from one day to the next where the best or safest spots to walk are. Hielo y Aventura are the ...
... the trio probably wasn't worth it, even though I got to see icebergs for the first time. The glaciers were pretty impressive expanses of ice and at the time I was glad to have taken the ferry (even though it was overpriced), but after taking the trip to Moreno the following day there was no competition and I wished then that I had just taken the Moreno tour.
