Owner description: A trip to this imposing glacier gives you a chance to walk on the ice wearing cleats and to see and hear a truly astounding spectacle: blocks of ice rupturing and floating away as icebergs.

“You absolutely need to see this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Mind blowing. One of the only glaciers in the world that is still not receding, this glacier is massive and worth a visit. The photo does not do it justice in terms of scale -- the front shelf is 60 meters high. Walk the board walk and wait for huge chunks of ice to fall into the lake. Take the ferry out onto the lake so you can see it up close. I'll never forget it.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Perito Moreno is just amazing. A huge chunk of growing ice. Totally impressive! Walk the paths, enjoy the different views of the glacier and the "enchanted forest" as you walk through. There is some wild life in the form of birds. Beautiful!

“A stupendous Adventure and Views !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

We (myself and Isabel) lodged at Xelena Suites Hotel , at El Calafate .
After my usual good pipe smoking in the outside of the Hotel , 06h30 and 2 Celcius degrees of warmth (...) , and the breakfast buffet , we boarded our EcoSport Ford' Jeep , for a drive through Route 11 , and the Patagonian' Dawn , to arrive at Puerto De Las Sombras by 11h30 and 4 degrees of temperature .
As about 200 passengers -many rednecks included ... from whom we escaped towards the freezing cold open air and exterior deck of the "Victoria Argentina" (Owned by "Hielo y Aventura)-
Temperature dropped below ZERO as we sailed through the Lago Rico and blue coloured small icebergs , and ice cold rain insisted on forcing us back to the huge cabin of the boat . But as a couple of stuborn travellers me and Isabel remained outsider (savouring the fantastic experience, and some of the 15 years that aged the whisky I took from Portugal in a small steel flask for this unique purpous)

A gigantic (60 mts tall) blue coloured Ice wall rouse in front os us from the chilly waters of Lago Argentino , as the boat slowed its course very nearby this stupendous scennary .

Absolutely FAN TAS TIC ! ...

I have no more words : Just enjoy the photos attached !

The Glacier is only 20 kilometers from El Calafate. There are lots of nice hiking trails and places to take beautiful photos of The Perito Moreno Glacier.

“An amazing experience and a must see in Patagonia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Loved the boat trip and mini trek was fantastic.
It was raining for some of the day so it was hard to get pictures at certain times.
