Perito Moreno Glacier, Los Glaciares National Park

(4.9/5 based on 5,500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • To go to the glacier, there are 3 options: go by car, rent a tour (not recommended) or go to Calafate bus terminal and take a passage (was what we did with my girlfriend) Sale $450.-Pesos Argentines take you, they leave you approx. 4 hrs and then return. The time seems little but is runs easy since there are footbridges and except an of them them others are of easy access for almost all the world. What you see is impressive, a wall of huge ice not tired the view, if you have the possibility to see a landslide as had us, the sound of the ice fall is beautiful. The truth is that if these in El Calafate and not visit the glacier, not to go to el Calafate. Data of interest: If sos student pay 80% less input, if no sos student conseguite student certificate regulating of any friend that not ask you ID :-D

  • We did the tour of tracking by the glacier. It is very quiet and safe, always guide guides the places where you can walk. You must follow your tips to enjoy the ride.

  • The visit to the Ice is essential for anyone who is in El Calafate, recommend making the ride with the trail in Glacier.

  • Yes. It is as incredible as they say. I wasn't quite sure if it would live up to the hype or not but it really did; go there, enjoy it, take way too many photos and sit in awe waiting for sections to carve off. Brilliant!. Be aware that most, if not all, tours will drop you off for 6 hours, this is pretty much way too long for most people if they are honest - taking a kindle along isn't such a bad idea. If you have kids then you will definitely want to bring along something else to entertain them!
  • Magnificent, up-close views of the third largest glacier on the planet. A short drive from El Calafate, you can wander across the front of the glacier on well-made steel walkways that safely bring you to unobstructed views of the glacier face; you can watch as large sections of ice calve into the lake. There are also boat tours that give a lower awe inspiring view of the very tall glacial face. For, the young, fit, and adventurous, there's an excursion which lets you hike on the glacier.
  • There are no words that can accurately describe walking about on this Glacier. It's a magically majestic place. The light changes make every moment one that you will cherish for the rest of your life.
  • Unforgettable! 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!
  • Amazing showcase of how beautiful nature is. Different route provide different views to the glacier and it is definitely worth it to do more than one route
