Marinelli Glacier

Marinelli Glacier, Timaukel, Magallanes y la Antártica Chilena Region, Chile

Stretching northward on the far side of the vast Alberto de Agostini National Park and not directly visible from the Beagle Channel, the popular Marinelli Glacier feeds into the deep Almirantazgo Fjord off of the Strait of Magellan. The glacier is notable not only as the largest of the Cordillera Darwin glaciers, but also as one that has been in steady retreat over the last half-century. In nearby Ainsworth Bay, elephant seals can often be spotted.
