Ventisquero O’Higgins


View Chile 2017 Winter on FierceOrc's travel map.

February 9

Villa O’Higgins is tiny and drab, but the glacier was the absolute highlight. It’s a ten-hour boat ride out and back but worth at least nine of them. Glacier up close and personal. Bryce Canyon in ice. The tongue of the glacier is a veritable wall of ice, with pieces crashing into the water every once in a while and ice floating all around.

And now we’re heading back north along the same route to catch our plane to Santiago in Balmaceda.

But not until we fix a flat tyre.

Four times jacking up the car before we could swith tyres
