A herd of llamas observes us as we bump along dirt tracks through the vastness of Patagonia shortly before sunrise. We are on our way to Grey Glacier. Skirting the kilometre-long Grey Lake, chunks of ice often break off and fall into the water. Even from the shore, we can see the first icebergs in the lake – they look like light-blue sculptures. We climb into the kayaks and paddle so close that we can almost touch them. Later, we take a boat to the majestic glacier, a gleaming wall of blue that shoots out of the water.
If you want to experience something that you never have before, do something you’ve never done before.
