The Ice Fields of Torres Del Paine National Park
See our full list of Where to Go in 2015. One of the most stunning places in Torres del Paine National Park is Lago Grey, where you can view pieces of the giant Grey Glacier that have broken off and populated the lake. On sunny days, you can hear the creaking and moaning of the ice pieces as they melt and occasionally break off and splash into the water. If you follow the lakeside trail up onto the cliffs, after about a mile you will reach an outstanding viewpoint where you can see Grey Glacier. If you want to visit the glacier up close, Hotel Lago Grey offers a boat ride that (weather permitting) will take you right up next to the glacier.
