The glacier snakes its way into Lago Argentino where it edges its way across the lake, occasionally it dams the Brazo Rico and cause the level of the lake to rise. When this happens the melting ice at the base is unable to support the weight and the whole bridge collapses in a spectacular explosion.
Sail as far up to channel as possible in order to view the stunning Upsala Glacier. This remains South America’s longest glacier at a length of 60 KM, a width of between 5 and 7 KM and a sixty metre high snout.
