As we got further into the National park the glacier got closer and closer!! And is it got closer and closer I was more and more in ore of its fastness and it's beauty!! I was completely blown away standing in front of this great wonder...It was so quiet and it cracked and echoed around the mountains...we were even lucky... More

Actually took two different tours: the standard boat trip up to the glacier, and then the hike on the glacier. Enjoyed both tours. Both also take you into the adjacent park and it's various paths with scenic viewing platforms (be prepared for hiking up and down, lots of stairs, so wear good footwear, not flip flops or heels). Gets windy... More

This is a fantastic place! eventhough we could not walk on the glacier as we did not have time, we saw it from the distance and is still so close and great! you can hear how the ice breaks. This is a must! I went in February 2013

Is an awesome place. The sights are spectacular, and the walking over the ice is an unforgotten experience. Also, the city El Calafate close to the glacier is a nice place to stay one or two days. And if you have some extra days, is a good idea visit El Chalten. I recommends to everybody to visit the Gracial Perito... More

When you walk on the Perito glaciar, that's when you realize the monster is alive. You can feel and hear the ice cracking and crumbling down beneath the surface. It is an unmissable experience and one I would remember my whole life. The full day ice-hiking expedition is called the big ice and you can book it from el calafate.... More

Unlike in El Chalten where there is no entrance fee to the same National Park Glaciares, here it is tourist overdrive with walkways built for viewing the glacier and even some of the walkway acts as a "trail" through forested area. Overall it was a place where we could have stayed the entire day just marveling at the glacier, touristy... More

Perito Moreno is one of the few self-sustaining glaciers in the world... a sight that is just not real, truly amazing... that makes you feel like the smallest and most insignificant creature on Earth.

The Perito Mereno Glacier was one of the many highlights of our trip in Argentina. The Glacier is breathtaking and hard to believe it's real.

The glacier offers a unique nature experience. The view is fantastic and the site is very well organized. You can get excellent pictures. I would also reccomend the boat trip tio get a closer view og the glaciar. Get ready to exercise your legs walking along the footwalk complex inn front of the glacier.
