#5 of 6 in Nature in Puerto Natales (Torres del Paine)
Amalia Glacier, also known as Skua Glacier, is a tidewater glacier located in Bernardo O'Higgins National Park on the edge of the Sarmiento Channel. The glacier originates in the Southern Patagonian Ice Field. From 1945 to 1986, its terminus retreated 7km, being, along with the recession of the O'Higgins Glacier, the most dramatic retreat of the glaciers of the mentioned icefield during that period.
The glacier partially surrounds Reclus volcano and erodes the northern flank of it.

  • We woke to open our curtains on Star Princess one morning to the spectacular view of the Amalia Glacier. It was a cold dull morning but for the next hour this was our view, not many people can say they had breakfast whilst looking at a glacier.
