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.

This really is the only thing around, so if you made it this far, this is the reason to go. You are able to walk right up to it, take a boat by it, and walk across it. The glacier is quite accessible. Lots of the ur companies will take you there.

We had researched this place before our travels, but no books or video clips can do this stunning glacier justice. It is only when seen with the naked eye that you can truly appreciate the scale and beauty of it. The park itself is well suited for vehicles, having smooth concrete roads and also for pedestrians, as they can choose... More

One of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. There is something magical about going to a glacier- hearing the thunderous noise as the ice falls, seeing the icy blue hue of the glacier. Go early in the morning for a view of the glacier on the platforms to avoid the crowds. It can be hard to get good... More

An impressive glaciar, being the third largest glaciar in the park, it is outstanding. It is a most while being in El Calafate.

To begin with, the boat ride to the glacier was great as the white giants with amazing hues of blue and turquoise slowly come to view. The mini-trekking was a unique experience - there will be staff helping you to put on crampons (important that you wear good trekking/sports shoes), a guide to brief you on how to ascend and...

We arrived in El Calafate early afternoon on a bright sunny clear day. Our friend told us to make the most of the weather and head out to the Glacier. As we had a car we did just that. On the 80 kms trip we passed numerous tour buses ( going the other way) and arrived around 4.00pm. After paying... More

Perito Moreno is among the very few Glaciers that still growes though it is melting. The site is well orgenized to accommodate the so many tourists coming to see the Glacier from the balconies and the vieu is spectacular..

I am running out of superlatives as I review places I recently visited in Patagonia because they were all amazing but this glacier is really special. The size alone is stunning: 60m high stretching for about two kilometers. Then there is the aspect of the front face with its uneven surface and deep blue bands looking like a cathedral designed...

We knew that the Perito Morena glacier would be impressive, but we were not quite prepared for its impact on the senses. And not just the visual aspect - If you pause for a moment, you're likely to see great big chunks of ice (the size of cars) break off and crash into the water below, emiting an eery thunderous...
