Located in the west side of Balmaceda Mount, the glacier is a unique view and a must-see attraction in Bernardo O´Higgins National Park. With 2035 meters of extension, the Balmaceda offers a real show when its icebergs detach from the east side of the glacier. Nevertheless its activity is in retrocession, losing ice due to global warming. Still, it's a wonderful place to visit, that may not exist in the near future.
