Have an Expedition in Patagonia Ice Cap
The Patagonian Ice cap is the third biggest ice cap in the world after Antarctica and Greenland. It has a surface of 17.000 square km. Joining the North and South section, it has 400 km length and 80 km width.
The highest summit is at the northern part, the San Valentin peak. At the ice cap start more than 300 glaciers which flow to the East, the Argentine side and to the West to the Pacific ocean and fjords, the Chilean side. Some of the glaciers, for example the Pio XI, descents directly to the fjords on the Pacific ocean. Several of the biggest glaciers which start flowing at the heart of the ice cap are: Viedma, Perito Moreno and Upsalla on the Argentine side; the Pio XI and Grey on the Chilean side.
