SOUTHERN ICE FIELDS
The Southern Patagonian Ice Field is largest expanse of continental ice in the world after Antarctica and Greenland, the largest non-polar ice field in the world and the largest ice field accessible by land. It is situated in the Patagonian Andes on the border between Argentina and Chile. You will be able to visit one of the glaciers fed by this magnificent ice field by taking our trip through the Patagonian fjords. (Glacier visits are only possible in high season, weather permitting)
