I've never seen anything like the water of Lago Argentino; its opacity and turquoise color are enchanting. It's a really beautiful and peaceful walk along the shores of Lago Argentino or a boat ride to one of the nearby glaciers.

By the maria turquesa boat, you are almost for the full day over there, still you can not sail the complete lake. The lake is beautiful duw to the spectacular views of the glaciers and ice bergs.

Great place to hang around. Take photos of the pink flamingoes and watch both kids and adults doing some ice skiing, and of course, the guys with 4x4s doing their thing on the edges.

This is such an enormous lake and went around and on it in various excursions! The colours of the water at different times of the day and the beautiful scenery of the surrounding mountains make it a great place.
