Full Disclosure: We paid full price for our stay and tours and did not receive any remuneration for this story.

0:12 It took a full two days to cover the 921 miles (or 1,482 km) between Bariloche and El Chaltén.
0:21 We used the town of El Chaltén as the jumping off point for our adventures in the Parque
0:26 Nacional Los Glaciares. Here, we hiked three days covering a total
0:31 of 40 miles (or 64 km) exploring many of the major trails.
0:37 We were blessed with perfect weather the first day, giving us the chance to gaze on the illusive
0:42 Cerro Chaltén all afternoon.
1:04 After traveling to the southern portion of the park, we had the awesome opportunity to
1:08 visit the Perito Moreno Glacier… up close and personal.
1:44 We were awed by the stark beauty of this area.
