... windy. So I was pretty freezing. The glacier was incredible, it is larger than Buenos Aires! It had been talked about so much though and as the weather was a bit **** it wasn't as amazing as I had hoped. Many people would disagree.

It is off the Peninsula Magallanes and the lake is called Argentino. We enter the Parque Natinal Los Glaciares and saw the glacier for the first time. It is enormous. A boat trip first to see the glacier up close and then back into the bus for a trip up the peninsular to get a view overlooking the whole of the glacier. It spans over two inlets ...
