Los Glaciares National Park is a natural highlight of Argentina
Argentina has long been a popular stop on South America tours, and while most people assume its cities are the largest draw, the country is also home to some of the most spectacular scenery in South America. After you've stopped by the bustling tourist hub of Buenos Aires, there is a long list of natural wonders you need to check out.
Many of most impressive natural features in Argentina are located in Los Glaciares National Park. The second-largest national park in the country, Los Glaciares is certainly a unique destination. It is home to nearly 50 glaciers, which are all fed by the largest ice cap in the world located outside of Greenland or Antarctica. As a result, if you pay a visit to the park you'll come face to face with some natural features you can't see anywhere else.
Argentino Lake stands out as one of the highlights of Los Glaciares. The largest freshwater lake in the country, Agrentino has become a popular tourist destination - and with good reason. Aside from offering breathtaking views of the Andes, you can hop on a tourist boat that will bring you close to the numerous icebergs that populate the lake's waters.
Of course, Argentino Lake isn't the only popular spot located within Los Glaciares National Park, as you should also make a point to view the Perito Moreno Glacier, which is among the most frequently visited glaciers in the world. The impressive formation is around 19 miles in length, but it has become famous for more than just its size.
What makes the Perito Moreno Glacier especially appealing as a tourist stop is that you can walk on top of it, as well as on both of its faces. There are a variety of different treks to take, but each of them will provide you with a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
