Perito Moreno Glacier, Los Glaciares National Park

5.0
#1 of 184 in Parks in Patagonia
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.

    It is beautiful, it is worthwhile to go! If you go to the South of Argentina you can not not stop in Calafate and go to Perito Moreno glacier to get to know. A unique experience for nature lovers.

    Unbeatable. The ride with the Catamaran, suffers from the same problem q proposed in rivers of ice: stops an enormous q photographers do their jobs. But, this one has a mitigation: detachments can be, and that makes it worth the wait. There is an elevator that leads to the main balcony. Lastima q is not sufficiently informed. Is what most enjoyed the Park, view, landslides: safety pin!
