    What to Expect
    The Patagonia Ice Field is the third biggest mass of ice in the world after Antarctica and Greenland, and the biggest if you think outside the polar surface. You will have a chance to hike this circle on a 55-mile, 8-day trek entering through the Marconi Glacier and into the amazing mass of ice, where only a few people have been. See itinerary for full details.
