You can only get to this glacier with a tourist company. It's an expensive tour but it's worth every penny. The feeling of walking on a glacier the intensity of this place is impossible to describe.

Great 1 hour boat trip to the glacier, you can disembark and take a guided trek close to the glacier. Trekking on the glacier is no longer allowed.

Despite having enjoyed an amazing sunny day at Perito Moreno I have to say that I found Viedma glacier as impressive and more special than the big brother. Viedma Glacier is far less visited so you can enjoy the views with a very limited number...More

Perito Moreno is hard to beat but Viedma is equal to or maybe better. It is a larger glacier in mass but sadly is now receding as well which prevents being able to actually on the ice. However you can still climb the moraine to...More
