Perito Moreno Glacier, Los Glaciares National Park

4.9
Marvel at the immense, ice blue cliff face of Perito Moreno Glacier, which spills out into Argentino Lake. Every so often the sound of thunder echoes all around as a slab of ice cleaves off and plunges into the water below. Explore the walkways of the national park that faces the 250 sq km (97 sq mi) glacier, providing many different viewpoints and perspectives from which to admire the ice flow, as well as the surrounding, snow-capped mountains. For a closer look, take a boat tour out to where the wall of ice towers over you. The most adventurous travelers can hike on the glacier itself. Most of the park's walkways are wheelchair accessible. Put Perito Moreno Glacier into our Los Glaciares National Park online sightseeing planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Perhaps it would be enough to push a traveler to visit Patagonia: 70 meters high, icebergs as big as buildings that stand apart from the front by generating impressive noises, 5 km wide. No pictures will never care what he really is. Worth the whole trip.

  • A day trip from El Calafate starting about 9.30 and returning around 17.00. First a 2 hour trip, first through the fairly featureless steppe and then the more lush foothills. A couple of stops at view...  more »
  • All the sources speak to book in advance and are correct. Very nice ride, a bit expensive but well organized, unique experience.

  • This place is absolutely stunning. It gives everybody the chance seeing a glacier calving close by but still protects nature from the masses of tourists. We were just sitting in front of the 70 meter high ice wall for hours watching and listening to this natural spectacle.
  • If you ever get the chance to travel to Americas, get over to Patagonia! Few sights on earth can match the stunning beauty of the glaciers here
  • No photos or videos will ever do this place justice, you definitely need to experience this place first hand. Unbelievable forces of nature at play here.
  • I could stay there and watch it for hours. Incredible beauty. Highly recommend you to book a mini trekking to see it closer.
  • Awesome! The Andean condor is a national symbol of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru. Among the largest in the world that are able to fly. They usually will stay grounded on cloudy days when there are no thermals. Due to their relatively large size they soar on warm air currents. The birds move in circles in order to stay within the thermal column.
