Glacial Erratics

Glacial Erratics

Primavera, Tierra del Fuego

In this location, composed of small settlements and coves, you will find hundreds of huge and surprising granite boulders, of between 1 and 15 meters tall, which seem to be scattered randomly and in a structureless manner in a landscape with no mountains or rock formations. These are known as glacial erratics, which arrived there due to the retreat of glaciers that date from 18,000 to 30,000 years ago.

Filming Feasibility

  • High

    Bloques errantes are distributed along the route between Bahía Inútil and Bahía Cameron. Some can be seen from the road and others are 2 or 3 km away within private properties. There are good options of locations to shoot with different size crews. The challenge here will be to shoot with large crews due to the shortage of available hotels.
