Southern Patagonian Ice Field

  • Remember reading a book when I was young about an expedition crossing the ice cap. Never imagined years later I'd be bleedin' living near it.

    Sad thing is I now have little desire to go and visit the area. Although we did fly over/close to it in 2006 on our way from Ezeiza to Sydney.


  • Strange that you say that, UK Man . I feel the same. Have enjoyed viewing glaciers and arctic/antarctic wildlife in New Zealand and Alaska, but can’t quite get moved to visit the biggest and best. Too far, too cold, too many other tourists.

    (Still, the chance to share a pingüino of Malbec with an actual pingüino....)
