This berg was as big as a house! We were bobbing around in a little lifeboat so we could be close to these and get some photos. Our main ship, the Skorpios III, although happy to plough through ice flows would not venture closer than 1 kilometre to the glacier face. The glacier in the background is the Pope Pio XI, the largest glacier (I think) in South America. Southern Patagonia, Chile.

    That is some wild adventure you went on! It is so beautiful and blue.
    This is definately a favorite.
    WOW.

  • Thanks Mar! I look adventurous, but I never even flew on a big aeroplane until this trip in 2003! I just made the most of my 3 trips to South America, and Italy is a local drive from the UK! ;o)
