So this beautiful baby is 25km wide, 250km in length (5km at the terminus), and rises 75m above the water... I hope that gives you some perspective a photo cannot.
I also can’t recommend strongly enough, that you take a boat ride close up to it for another 500ARP. The perspective this angle provides, as the glaciar towers over you, is rather unique.
Watch intently as ice carves into the lake sounding dramatic cracks of thunder. 👌🏼
Tip 2 - Give yourself a couple days! I was told one was enough, however if you want the chance to walk out over the glacier using crampons (and drink whisky with glacial ice-rocks, yeah, not kidding), then you will need a day to explore the glacier park and a second full day for the walking tour.
Final point, don’t be afraid of a little rain or fog ruining your day....
To the contrary; the lack of direct sunlight allows for the blue of the glacier to truly glow, and well, less people always makes for a better experience when trying to interact with nature! ✌🏼
