La Catedral de Hielo Azul

Los Glaciares National Park is a really large park (600.000 hectares) situated at the South-West area of Province of Santa Cruz. This park reclines on Los Andes Range; a beautiful forest and two big lakes (Argentino and Viedma) take part of it, but the main attraction of the park are, undoubtedly, the wonderful glaciers.

The closest town is El Calafate, situated about 80 Km from the park; the park gateway is situated at Provincial Route Number 11.

    This place looks absolutly wonderful. I did not expect this kind of landscape in Argentina. Are the no smoking areas (I agree) made to avoid glacier melting :-)))
