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.

The mini trek is moderately strenuous. Be attentive during the short briefing so you know what to do during the trek. It is important we follow the footstep of the person in front. Do not stray away or take short cut as it will be dangerous. The pace is pretty decent. It was a short one hour trek and we... More

Yes, yes, and yes and yes! There are several places to go on your trip to the Patagonia (Argentina) but one unmistakable place to go is Perito Moreno, one of the only glaciers to be mildly to not affected by global warming. This means a glacier that is as pristine as you can get! Breath taking, incredible sight, gorgeous view’s,... More

What a magnificent glacier, it is a 'must visit' and worth the time, cost etc.. One of the coolest things to see and do. Exciting to see slivers over 100 feet tall break off and become floating ice debris in Lago Argentino.

When we were planning our visit to Argentina, we knew we would have to head south to Patagonia to visit Parque Nacional Los Glaciares (Glaciers National Park), home to some of the most spectacular and accessible glaciers in the world. We made the town of Calafate our base and we elected to rent a car to give us the freedom... More

If you are going to Argentina you have to make the trip to El Calafate. You can easily get there by plane from Buenos Aires. We did a guided tour to the Glacier and even got to do a mini trekking excursion on it. The Glacier, the national park, all of it is one of the most beautiful things I've... More

I'm sure the glacier , the supposed highlight of my trip is beautiful. Unfortunately today the clouds are hiding it completely. What a huge bummer. You can hear the cracking of he ice as it falls into the lake. This is what a blind person must feel like. The nature surrounding it is gorgeous. So I was trying my best... More

A must-see in Patagonia. Walking the full path and watching the glacier cleave is incredible. I was not fortunate enough to see a large cleaving or an archway fall, but the sights and sounds of even smaller pieces falling was incredible.

I literally could not stop talking about this place once I got back. There is nothing like seeing this piece of raw Mother Nature live in person. To this day, the most breathtaking view I have ever seen. I don't remember the cost of the tour, however- it can't be that much- if you go during the off season, which... More

Did the mini trekking which was about a 2 hour hike in all which is not that hard at all. Took a bottle of whisky in my backpack to drink with the ice at the end of the hike which I totally recomend. The views are just amazing.....
