An Area with Exceptional Natural Beauty

The Los Glaciares National Park lies in the Santa Cruz Province in the area of Austral Andes in Argentina. Spanning over an area of 4459 km² the park was established in 1937 and in 1981 was declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This national park is one of the largest in Argentina. The glaciers in this national park are quite different from the other glaciers and the ice cap in the park is the largest outside Greenland and Antarctica.

The glaciers in Los Glaciares National Park originate at a mere height of 1500m above sea level and flow down to around 200m providing a unique view. As a result of the pressure, two lakes have immerged from the Los Glaciares National Park namely the Lago Argentino and Lago Viedma. The water from these lakes flows as Rio Santa Cruz and into the Atlantic Ocean.

Today a number of visitors from across the world come to visit this park. The park can be visited at any time of the year. The Glacier Perito Moreno in the southern part of the park is the focal point of the park. The glacier is famed for its dynamic changes that give rise to a cyclic phenomenon of forward and backward movement. Visitors can also see stunning ice falls from the front wall of the glacier. The closest town from this part of Los Glaciares National Park is El Calafate where you can enjoy a range of services and facilities.

The northern end of the Los Glaciares National Park has granite peaks, beautiful lakes, glaciers and woods that are definitely worth visiting. The tallest mountains in the area are the Mt. Fitz Roy and the Mt. Torre. To explore this area of the Los Glaciares National Park, the small village of El Chaltén is the best base.

Finding halal food and Masaajid around the Los Glaciares National Park is difficult. However, you can find alternative dining options in the town of El Calafate. The Los Glaciares National Park can easily be accessed from different points along the Route no. 40. Taking a bus or a car is the best option to reach the Los Glaciares National Park.
