Ubicado sobre el Lago Argentino, en la provincia de Santa Cruz, en Argentina, se encuentra esta maravilla natural.
Hay varias opciones. se pueden recorrer distintos circuitos sobre pasarelas, muy fáciles de reconocer ya que están divididas por colores.
Cada una nos muestra el glaciar desde diferentes perspectivas.
Recorrer las pasarelas es un buen complemento a los minitrekking o big ice , caminatas sobre el glaciar.

You will spend a long time finding places more beautiful than this. Be prepared, the weather is highly unpredictable and can shift extremely quick. Wind was like nothing I have ever experienced except in a severe storm in the middle of Iceland. My party literally had to crouch and hug the ground at times in order to not to be blown downhill. I highly recommend booking ahead of time, and if you are going to tent camp make sure your gear is top notch.

The mini-trek on the glacier is fabulous. Then views from the boardwalk give another perspective. I’ve been to glaciers in Alaska and Canada and nothing compares to this place!

We did all 3 aves, the viewpoint to see condors and over to Silla de Diablo to make the most of the area. Peaceful and not crowded. All very easy.

Even with 85+km wind gusts or maybe because of them this was a great and exhilarating hike to a viewpoint that is nice but not awe inspiring. It’s more on the easy than moderate side. Without wind it would definitely be easy. Starts with a pretty waterfall. Not at all crowded when we went in the late morning.

Nice walk trough the forest, beautiful views doable in 4 hours.

Breathtaking, amazing, absolutely perfect! We did the W for our honeymoon, and it was the most incredible journey. We hired a guide since we are relatively new to backpacking, but we agreed that it would have been easily completed without a guide. The hike was challenging, but honestly much less tiring than we anticipated -- granted we spent all summer training in the Cascades, which I'm sure helped. There is fresh water throughout the hike that is drinkable, so don't carry too much with you as there is no need. Other posters have stated this, but pack for EVERY WEATHER climate. There were days that went from rain, to show, to 75 and sunny -- sometimes within 2-3 hours. We went in early-November and had great weather, and could go hours on the trail without seeing a single person (even at the famous vista stops). I hear it gets crazy-busy in the summer, which wouldn't have affected our trip too much but it was so special feeling very isolated. Glacier Grey was our favorite day, so DO NOT skip the hike over the hanging bridges, no matter how scary that point may be :)

The wind was howling but that made it an experience.

Take the time to do this. The view IS Torres del Paine!

Such an incredible hike! Did this unguided and solo for New Years Eve 2018! Highly recommend!

I recommend taking the red trail. It contains the lowest and closest views (as seen on my recording, not sure why it lapses). One gets a great perspective.

Bucket list item complete!

Craziest hike I’ve ever done, definitely a difficult endeavor, nothing but elevation but gives you a great sense of accomplishment. Last bit is scrambling up rocks. Make sure to get to the park early.

Not an easy hike, took me 8 hours in total. In fact, I've seen better forests and peaks in Chile, so not verry impressed. OK for some sports.

beware of massive winds at the top but overall if you moderate your pace, this trail isn’t too hard. it’s just a bit on the long side.

Wonderful Track✨

OMG✨The Dream✨

Amazing.

Soak in the hot tub at Cuernos if possible!!

Went while it was raining and it was just amazing.

no. words. mind. blown. did it with wildland trekking. recommend hiking from east to west, as the scenery and refugios get progressively better— from base of towers to french valley to grey glacier (with cuernos refugio being my least favorite). layers are your best friend as you’re constantly layering/de-layering to adjust to the weather conditions. i want to go back already.

The view is worth it! Hard toward the end but made for one of the best days / hikes of my life!

Amazing experience. Went early October to avoid the crowds. We had 3 days of beautiful weather and one day of cold and snowy. This trail takes you through varying terrains and weather conditions which makes each day exciting. We stayed at the Refugios during our trek and the chance to take a shower and grab a cold beer each night made the experience even more enjoyable.

Beautiful views with diverse terrain. Highly recommend early October when the park is less crowded.

Super difficult, but so worth it.

exciting view

Amazing hike!! Beautiful views of Llaima volcano and the Araucaria trees. Must do again!

If I had the time and money I would do this hike tomorrow!

Amazing place to visit! You will never forget

One of the best multiday hikes we did (group of three). The vistas are very rewarding and the colours are breathtaking. We were quite unlucky with the weather: heavy rain and fog almost every day. The second day, my husband lost his boots when we crossed one of the rivers that was running at high levels and very furious. The water level was quite high (well above my knees) so we had to cross it barefoot. His boots weren't properly secured on the heavy backpack and .... they were gone! We had duct tape so we transformed a pair of sleepers into hiking boots and made it to the refugio. Appart from this incident, we had a wonderful time in the national park. Many flowers, rainbows, chauras (we nibbled on them all the time), birds, glaciers and nice hikers. We were lucky that we could buy a pair of old hiking boots so we could continue our trail.
