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.

One of the most impressive natural sites I've ever seen. Seriously worth the trip! I'm so happy a went. I found a day trip on a bus that included a boat trip and then we walked the entire boardwalk. It's all worth it. My friend...More

Worth the entry fee but please take enough cash with you. When you arrive at the park boundary a national parks officer gets on the bus equipped with a smart phone and a tablet. However he asks for cash only! We thought we could pay...More

I would have given Perito Moreno Glaceir five stars but it is almost impossible to do on your own for cheap. You have to go with an agency, rent a car, or pay for the overpriced bus. The cheapest way, a 45 minute bus ride,...More

Third world's largest after Antarctica and Greenland, so massive it must be seen to be believed. We did the mini trek (1.5 hrs) with our two young kids, we loved it as a family. We went with Grayline Tours (Argentina). Amazing views from the deck...More

What an amazing time! We got the opportunity to trek on the glacier. In the middle of the tour the guide pulled out some glasses from his backpack, used his ice pick to chip at the ice and fill the glass. He then Pour us...More

IMO, this glacier is special. Compared with all natural landscapes I've been, this is by far the most beautiful one.

This is third largest store of ice on Mother Earth after Antartica and Greenland. What makes this glacier special is its unique shape and frequent ruptures. Its so accessible you can have a day trip from Puerto Natales if you are in Chile or stay...More

This beautiful glacier is surreal. It's massive and you can see all the way back to the mountains. The sound it makes when pieces break off is astonishing, almost like gunfire or a cannon. The walkway the park was made gets you very close and...More

Ever wanted to feel like John Snow on the Wall? This glacier defies the boundary between reality and imagination, it's just awesome. We went in autumn and actually caught the first snow of the year, adding to the experience. Glacier itself is located 80 km...More

Like any glaciar it's a great site to contemplate, but what sets Perito Moreno apart is the location which is quite accessible, you not only get to see it by boat (which I would advise), but also have some walkways on the opposite site which...More

We are going March 23rd, flying into FTE on their first flight, will I have enough time to enjoy all that I need to see and fly back out the same day. Also what are the temps around that time of the month. I see others are saying to just use the local taxi drivers as your tour guide, we are fluent in Spanish, If needed any places to stay overnight Thanks,

One day is enough to go to the National Park lookout and walk to the glacier if you use a taxi but not enough time to do the boat ride to the Three Glaciers which is terrific.
We am travelling around South America and thinking of going to El Calafate / Perito Moreno Glacier in July 2017. I have been told it will be too cold and that the Glacier wont be open at that time of year. I have tried to look for tours but I havent been able to find any that go from El Calafate to Perito Moreno at that time. Is it worth it? Or should be just head straight to Bolivia instead. Thanks
