    Definitely our favorite place we had stayed after a month in South America. Online reviews complained about its location. We didn't think the walk was bad. The place's charm and Adriana's hospitality easily outweigh any concerns about the location anyways. Super comfortable room and legitimately hot shower at all times. Adriana's homemade treats were the star of the show though. I highly recommend staying here.

    ... The hike probably wasn't the safest exploring I have done - the footing was very unstable and it was really steep. I was literally crawling at points with rock and stones crumbling under my feet. Thankfully my tour to Upsala Glacier went the next day! We took a bus to Lake Argentino, then a three hour boat to visit the ice bergs floating on the lake. We then went by 4WD to the view point of the glacier. After lunch and a tour of the old wool shed we returned to ...

    ... like time had stopped still and as if our quads might tear off our knee caps. Yet, each time, Bernardo took a longer shift and cut in on our turns. Perhaps not entirely shockingly, after 110 kilometres, we completely dropped him - he just sunk like a stone. We waited for him at the only cafe on the route, where we had coke, coffee, cake and pizza, before Bernardo threw in the towel and announced he was going to stay there to camp. Matt and John pushed on, riding the last two and ...

    ... to walk around and watch the advancing glacier.

    The walkways are very organized, they are like boardwalks with rails either side to prevent (well, discourage) anyone from trying to make their way down the steep hillside towards the base of the glacier for an even closer look. The walkways are maybe 800m away from the actual face of the glacier, but due to it's size, you feel you are a lot closer and the view can only be described as amazing. ...

    ... on the side of the lake some distance away. It wasn't until we were about to begin our accent that some guy who had intercepted us (he must have been tracking us from a long way away) told us this was private land and we couldn't go up unless part of a tour orgainised back in town. Bummer.

    We eventually got back to the hostel around four, so it was a decent 6 hour excursion. My ...

    ... graveyard as the glacier advances by as much as 2 metres per day. To use another superlative and to try hard to put the deserts, jungles and mountains I've seen over the last couple of months to one side, this is the most spectacular natural phenomenon I think I've ever seen. WHAT I GOT UP TO My track record with glaciers is not the best. That's not to say there have been any problems on them. Just that I haven't made it onto them. I've missed out on treks in New Zealand ...
