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.

“Good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

We visited Moreno Glacier as part of a wonderful Patagonian tour and experience. We chose not to do the boat tour as we were on the way to Antarctica where we were going to see many glaciers. We found out later that wasn't a bad decision as we met people off the boat who told us the boat was packed and difficult to move about and they said the view from the land was better. Our guide took us to magnificent walkway and we were able to see calving and floating icebergs as well as the ice tunnel formed by the glacier reaching the shoreline then the water creating a tunnel after some weeks. The walkway in itself is a wonderful structure.
Unless you go to Antarctica you won't find a better glacier for visiting conveniently as well as experiencing El Calafate.

“Simply one of a kind”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Photographers this is your heaven...be patient and wait until the ice breaks and catch it fall for some unique shots. The air is fresh and the view is extraordinary...there are no words to explain it but you simply cannot go to Argentina without visiting Perito Moreno. It's essential and you'll know what I mean once you visit.

“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!
