Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Patagonia / Province of Santa Cruz / El Chalten / Viedma Glacier
Hike on Viedma Glacier, part of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field. Flowing into the western end of Lake Viedma, the glacier ends in a cliff rising 40 m (131 ft) over the lake and creating an impressive natural sight. The coloration of the glacier, which appears to be striped black and white, is the result of debris collecting in the ice as it moves across the land. Book a guided walk on the glacier with one of the operators providing specialized gear for glacier hiking, or view it on a boat tour. For Viedma Glacier and beyond, use our El Chalten trip planner to get the most from your El Chalten vacation.
