Icefield Hiking in San Rafael Lagoon National Park

Hike on ancient ice that’s hundreds of meters thick!

The Northern Patagonian Icefield is one of the largest bodies of ice remaining outside of the polar regions. The last vestige of an ice sheet that covered most of Chile 18,000 years ago, the icefield is a fearsome place even as it retreats.

Follow your guide across a boundless expanse of rolling white. Hear splendid silence punctuated only by the crunch of your crampons in the ice and the tinkling of carabiners on your safety harness. 

Gaze at incandescent peaks rising in the distance like blades. And if you’re feeling adventurous, climb one!
