Nature In Patagonia ... hot days and plently of ice!

Millennial ice in fact! A recent programme exploring some of the Nahuel Huapi National Park led us to two different glaciers, on the way enjoying spectacular sunshine and scenery, and some cool woodpeckers! (of the Giant Magellanic variety) ... the park can be explored on foot or on horseback, and mixing up the two is a perfect combination!
Local giant, Mount Tronador - a must for climbers, trekkers and riders from around the world

Local giant the Coihue tree

Hanging glaciers and high waterfalls
