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.

  • I have seen many glaciers. This one reigns supreme. It is just amazing - it's size, it's colour, the noise it makes - everything is just extraordinary. We went to Iguazu Falls later in our trip and th...  more »
  • A stay in the region, and with good reason! The glacier is huge. He cracks all the time and sometimes pieces fall, it made impressive noises. We went there with a rental car. The entrance was 600 pesos per person (so €15, in November 2018). With a personal car, you have to park on a specific car park, which is at the end of the bridges to watch the glacier. Allow at least 2 hours to browse a lot of gateways and observe the glacier. If you can stay any longer, it is even better! You can plan the picnic, there is lot of alcoves with benches and views on the glacier. There are also at least 1 restaurant next to the visitor with car parking, with a great view of the glacier, and an almost reasonable price menu (it has not tested).

  • An exhilarating experience to see this glacier, but moreso if you are fortunate enough to see the calving of the glacier. A unique aspect of this glacier is that it is one of very few glaciers that is still"growing". Once on site, find a place along the ramps where very few people are and listen to the sounds for a few minutes - so amazing. Some people spend the entire time talking and miss out on one of the most important aspects of visiting this site, not to mention that it tons it for others that are trying to enjoy the full glacial 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.
  • Undoubtedly my favourite place in the whole world. Inescapable beauty!! Definitely do the trek to the centre of the glacier with Big Foot Adventures to get the best views, it's magical. Highlight of my entire South America trip.
  • We booked a half-day trip with Chalten Travel (ARS450) from Calafate town centre to the fantastic Perito Moreno glacier. Drive took just under 2 hours including a short stop at the entrance of Parque nacional los glaciares to pay the entrance fee (ARS 260). Was WELL WORTH THE AMAZING VIEW! Did not bother with visiting the cafe. Just strolled along the wooden trail set directly opposite the glacier, at different heights. Marvelled for hours!
  • Speechless. I have no words to describe. It’s really amazing. I really recommend you guys to come over and appreciate this place.
