We went from Europe to Argentina to see some of the amazing nature and landsacapes in Patagonia - and Parque Nacional Los Glaciares didn't disappoint us. If you are looking for a national park that offers breathtaking views, the feeling of having it all to yourself, nice people and great hiking this is the place to go. In the south end of the park we wen't to Estancia Christina and saw the Upsala Glacier, and we walked on the Perito Moreno Glacier (The Big Ice Tour with Hielo y Aventura). In the north (bus from El Calafate to El Chalten - around three hours or so) we one day hiked out to the glacier lake by Cerro Torre and another day out to the glacier lake by Mt. Fitz Roy. The scenery along the way is all worth the sore feet. El Chalten is the trekking capital of Patagonia and is a nice, cozy town - nothing wild, but with some decent places to get some good food and a beer after a day out in the wild. It's also possible to rent tent and sleeping bags in the town if you want to camp at one of the designated sites in the park - for example the site near Mt. Fitz Roy is popular.
