I found myself intoxicated by Los Glaciares National Park, long before I spent time exploring it. There is just something so curious about those granite Fitz Roy towers emerging into the air, the way the light falls on them, and the sharp textures of the Perito Moreno Glacier!
The Los Glaciares National Park can be found on the Argentinean side of Patagonia. It is one of the largest national parks in the country spanning over 2,800 square miles. It’s not a park you can easily sightsee through in one day. …and please don’t! Spend the time to savor it through a few days! After all, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site so it’s gotta be good, right?!
Dying to know how to get here? The nearest international airports to get to these fabulous areas are as follows:
El Calafate is a fantastic vibing town, one of my favorites in fact! The people, the food, and the fact that it is a pretty central locale to discover all there is in the Los Glaciares National Park, helps too. Minutes from here, you’ll find yourself among the glory of the Perito Moreno Glacier!
The options for discovering the Perito Moreno Glacier are many! First, there is an 1 hour boat ride that gets you super close to to admire the glacier falls at eye level. Then if you’re an extreme sports enthusiast or adrenaline junkie, there are guided tours you can take hiking or ice climbing on the Perito Moreno Glacier. And for those of you that wish to admire from afar or at a birds eye view, then you’ll love the boardwalk that allows you to walk from end to end.
Three hours north of El Calafate, past Lago Argentino and Lago Viedma, but still within the Los Glaciares National Park you’ll find the grand Fitz Roy Mountains. The towers of Mount Fitz Roy are nestled in the small town of El Chalten, which I like to refer to in its current day situation of being a “pop-up-town” because everything in this town looks less than 1-5 years old (as of when this Patagonia Wedding Planning post was published).
It’s so new that at the time we visited, the entire town shared one internet connection… I’m not kidding. For the 4 days we spent here exploring I could barely get any emails sent and even had to reschedule Skype calls because there was not a strong enough connection available. The gas station was not even a stationary place (it was a trailer). But the fabulous trade off, is that you’re able to stay so close to the beauty and peace that lies within those majestic mountains behind that little town!
El Chalten is a mecca for those who are looking to hold a romantic elopement or adventure wedding in the Argentinean side of Patagonia. There are 30 minute hikes to 4 hour hikes that will forever imprint you soul. What an unforgettable way to not only celebrate your wedding in Patagonia but to continue on with your honeymoon throughout the stunning Los Glaciares National Park!
The Los Glaciares National Park and the Fitz Roy Mountains in El Chaltén, present some unique challenges as far as routes, fuel options, internet speed, etc. But the views you’ll encounter are out of this world amazing so please find your way there!
We’d love to help you plan your epic Patagonia adventure wedding, so please contact us for more information to ensure your Argentina destination wedding or elopement in Los Glaciares National Park or at the Fitz Roy Mountains will be a flawless time! In the meantime, today we share with you a few of our favorites from a Los Glaciares elopement! ❤ Enjoy ❤

Have you ever had a very vivid (almost lucid) dream about a place you’ve never been and one that you’re not even sure exists as a real life location? But you explore it in your dreams and are convinced you will and must find it?! Ushuaia, Argentina was this uncanny place for me.
I’ve always been a seeker of offbeat, unheard of, and sometimes all it takes is seeing an image of a location and suddenly I have an undying urge to investigate the location. Call it intuition or call it fate, I often find my way to these locations and I am never disappointed in the secret adventure wedding locations I stumble upon! It’s incredibly exciting!
Since I spend most of my time at the token “top of the world” planning adventure weddings in Iceland and throughout the other amazing Nordic countries, I thought it might be a brilliant change to start off 2016 at the bottom of the world, in the most southern city in the world: Ushuaia, Argentina. You’ve probably never heard of it so please allow me today to introduce you to this unspoken beauty!
First question… How do you get to the end of the world city, Ushuaia? There are direct flights into Ushuaia, Argentina (airport code: USH) and then it is best to rent a car. But! If you’re looking for a driving adventure you can fly into the main airport in Patagonia in Punta Arenas (airport code: PUQ), rent a car (Tip: Ensure it has the correct border crossing paper work before leaving) and then start a 1 hour trek to the border between Chile and Argentina.
You’ll need to take a cargo ferry in between (which you just show up and pay once you’ve boarded the ferry). Once off you’ll have another 2.5 hour drive to the the Chilean/Argentina border (make sure you stamp out of Chile before you head to the Argentinean border). We found an amazing amount of gorgeous secret locations and tons of guanacos along the way which made it such a fun drive!
When we arrived in Ushuaia, I was overwhelmed by the beauty, charm, and the amount of this amazing Patagonia wedding locations in and around this little town tucked in in mountains! I. Was. In. Heaven.
For you adventure seekers that love to hike and explore, there are endless options for you in Ushuaia! There are short 30 minute to longer 2+ hour hikes within the Tierra del Fuego National Park that will allow you to experience the most Southern tip of the Andes Mountains and the famed Beagle Channel.
The landscape in Ushuaia is unique full of interesting textures and tones. There are unforgettable mountain views, earthy swamps, bridges made from wood planks, waterfalls, jungles, emerald lagoons, incredible cliffs, and beaches!
There are also two of the most amazing hotels I’ve ever stayed also in this area of Ushuaia, Argentina! They can easily accommodate a dreamy Patagonia elopement or a large 100+ wedding in Ushuaia with all of the North American 4-5 star hotel amenities we know and love.
So whether you plan on coming to the bottom of the world for a romantic getaway, to elope or hold your wedding in Patagonia, I would love to show you the amazing locations we have in our portfolio! Please contact us for more information! In the meantime, enjoy the gorgeous images below and explore Ushuaia, Argentina a little bit with us!
