Laguna San Rafael National Park is a well known park located on southern Chile's Pacific coast. The park is named for the San Rafael Lagoon, which was formed by the retreat of San Rafael Glacier.
- Laguna San Rafael National Park was created in 1959 and covers an area of 17420 km2 (6726 ml2). It includes Northern Patagonian Ice Field. One of the principal attractions in the park is a fjord more than 16 km (10 ml) long.
- Non-indigenous people explored the region of Laguna San Rafael for the first time in 1675. A glacier of the same name was during that time a land-terminating glacier. It probably reached the lagoon again at some time between 1741-1766, and it has since that date been a tidewater glacier.
- In 1979 the park was designated World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO.
- Laguna San Rafael National Park comprises some of Patagonia's higher Andes mountains, including Cerro Arenales, Cerro Hyades, Cerro Pared Norte and Monte San Valentín.
- The park has a number of rivers, of which San Tadeo is situated in the Isthmus of Ofqui. It flows into San Quintin Bay in the north part of Gulf of Penas. Also there are a variety of rivers bordering the park, including Baker River and Exploradores River. Tempanos River (actually not really a river) links San Rafael Lagoon with Gulf Elefantes, Moraleda Channel's southern part.
- Presidente Rios Lake spans the border between Laguna San Rafael National Park and Las Guaitecas National Reserve.
- Several birds' species find shelter in the park, such as black-browed albatrosses, black-necked swans, cormorants and great grebes. The wildlife in the area also include sea lions, marine otters, elephant seals and Chilean dolphins.
