It talks about how the glaciers, the frozen rivers of ice, can move as slowly as a few inches a year. This is a great book to introduce the beginning concepts of glaciers.

    The tour begins by boat at the Bay Harbor "Bajo de las Sombras", situated miles (22 kilometers) from the Glaciers National Park entrance and 5 miles (8 kilometers) from the Glacier. From there you board a boat in order to reach the opposite coast of Peninsula de Magallanes, crossing the Rico Branch of Argentine Lake.

The capital of Argentina, Buenos Aires, is situated in centre of the country. It has a temperate climate with a southern hemisphere.

The full day tour to Torres del Paine National Park will take you from El Calafate and across the border to explore Patagonia in Chile. Discover the colourful nature and impressive rocky landscape of the Torres Del Paine National along Patagonian park trails on this Torres del Paine day tour and sightsee the exceptional surrounding mountains, glaciers and lakes .
