Amalia Glacier

Amalia Glacier, Natales, Magallanes y la Antártica Chilena Region, Chile

It’s hard for a glacier to stand out in a world of ice fields that enjoy almost celebrity status. But the three-kilometer-wide (two-mile-wide) Amalia Glacier on the Peel Fjord manages to, for its sheer beauty and its thick ice floes plunging into the sea. It also happens to be at the convenient point where the vast national parks of Bernardo O’Higgins, Torres del Paine and Argentina’s UNESCO-designated Los Glaciares converge.
