This glacier owes its name to a great Argentinean explorer from the last century and is one of the few glaciers in the world that is still moving - one of the most spectacular natural shows in South America. Periodically its 200-foot high outer edge will release ice walls the size buildings that fall into Rico Bend or Canal de los Témpanos (Ice floes Channel).
