Photograph Perito Moreno Glacier

Rate this Adventure Argentina Perito Moreno Glacier

Added by Christin Healey

One of the most incredible glaciers in Patagonia to visit due to its size and accessibility. Boardwalks to view the southern face of the glacier, and you can also just sit and listen to the ruptures that occur frequently due to the pressure from the weight of the ice.

From the town of El Calafate in Argentina, the glacier is less than two hours away down route 15. There are easy signs the entire way. You will then reach the park entrance, where you will pay roughly $20SUSD/per person for entrance. About 20 minutes from the park entrance, you will reach the parking lot for the glacier. From here, there are many different angles to shoot the face of the glacier from the boardwalk, or you can sign up for a mini trekking tour to actually walk on the ice. If you can catch a moment with the ice crashing into the sea, even better!
