 The Upsala Glacier is the largest glacier within the continental patagonic ice, even though it has suffered severe losses during the last years. It owes its name to the swedish city of Upsala, which university promoted the first glacialogical studies in the area. The height of its walls ranges from 197 to 262 ft (60-80 m) and its surface is of 232 sqm (595 km2), it is 37 miles (60 km) long, and 3-4 miles (5-7 km) wide. The total basin surface of this glacier is of 390 sqm (1000 km2). The dept of the lake at the front of the glacier is of about 3280 ft (1000 m).

Spegazzini Glacier was named after the botanist Carlos Spegazzini who made the first studies of the local flora. This glacier has a surface of 26 sqm (66 km2) and it's 15.5 miles (25 km) long, and 1 mile (1.5 km) wide. The height of its front (262-443 ft/80-135 m) is an outstanding characteristic. It's the highest glacier within the National Park. ALong the left margin of the glacier we find very little vegetation due to a fire occurred over 60 years ago.

Landing in Onelli Bay we find ourselves surrounded by forest. A typical patagonic forest where lenga and guindo are found all over covered by "old man's beard" usnea (liquen). Crossing the forest, through approx. 872 yds (800 m), we reach Onelli Lagoon, where glaciers Onelli (45 km2/18 sqm), Bolado (16 km2/6 sqm) y Agassiz (31 km2/12 sqm) meet. Given the plenty detachments of icebergs from these glaciers, we usually find the lagoon full of them.
