Grey Glacier

Grey Glacier on Grey Lake in Torres del Paine National Park, Chile

Grey Glacier is a glacier in the Southern Patagonian Ice Field, just west of the Cordillera del Paine. It flows southward into the lake of the same name. Before dividing in two at its front end, the glacier is 6 kilometers wide and over 30 meters high.

Grey Lake is one of numerous glacial lakes cut into the landscape of the southern portion of Patagonia in Chile. Ice from Grey Glacier not only feeds the lake’s waters as it melts, but often clogs Grey Lake with icebergs sloughed off as the glacier calves. The high elevation and far southern latitude lend a cool climate to this mountain landscape. Even in summer, the high temperatures hover around 61 degrees Fahrenheit. And there’s more to this region than spectacular blue-white walls of ice: We’re within Torres del Paine National Park, one of the greatest wilderness reserves on Earth.
