The Glaciers National Park is set amongst the immense Patagonian Andes. Here weaving your way through the crystalline lakes and deciduous forests the racket of the modern world becomes a distant memory. The park is home to some fantastic wildlife such as Puma, Guanaco (mini-llama), armadillo, south Andean deer and over 100 species of birds including flamingo, black-necked swans and peregrine falcons.
