It is one of the world’s largest glaciers, the Perito Moreno Glacier extends over the southern arm of Lago Argentino and has a front of 5 miles and sixty meters.
Is Argentina’s most famous glacier, Perito Moreno Glacier is part of Glacier National Park, whose surface area of 7,240 km ² contain 356 glaciers, forests, mountains and lakes.

Amalia Glacier, Chile (Scenic Cruising)
Located in the central part of the Southern Patagonian Ice Fields, the Amalia Glacier descends from the Andes Mountains and sits towering above the sea. Because of the glacier’s immense weight, the oxygen has been pressed out of the ice, giving it an amazingly beautiful crystalline appearance.
The Amalia Glacier is one of three spectacular glaciers that are truly one-in-a-lifetime sights to behold. Approximately 73 square miles in area, the Amalia’s mammoth blue mountain of ice is constantly changing, and like other glaciers, gradually shrinking.
