Glaciers

Chile accounts for 82% of glaciers in South America. Totalling to 24,133 glaciers, the majority of these stand in Chile’s Patagonia.

Glaciers are formed from snow remaining in the same place each year, transforming to ice. Every year, new layers of snow bury and compact with the previous layers causing crystals to form.

These magnificent rivers of ice portray a vivid blue hue which gives the visual effect of flowing water.

Whilst visiting Chile, you are highly likely see a glacier and should take the time to get up close to one. We would highly recommend travelling to Patagonia and perhaps joining a tour to discover the immense glaciers.

A wonderful way to see glaciers is a visit to Torres del Paine national park, joining one of the adventurous treks around the park with other keen tourists. These treks take you to almost untouched parts of Chiles, giving you the unique experience to see these wondrous glaciers in a personal and enlightening way.

Surrounded by a wide variation of fauna and flora, these azure giants contrast hugely to the luscious green scenery, adding to their astonishing marvel.

Unfortunately, these vast flows of varying white and blue are continually losing volume due to a rapid melt rate. With the fast shrinkage of these glaciers, it is an essential experience to have seen these splendid blocks of ice. .
