Perito Moreno Glacier, Los Glaciares National Park

Marvel at the immense, ice blue cliff face of Perito Moreno Glacier, which spills out into Argentino Lake. Every so often the sound of thunder echoes all around as a slab of ice cleaves off and plunges into the water below. Explore the walkways of the national park that faces the 250 sq km (97 sq mi) glacier, providing many different viewpoints and perspectives from which to admire the ice flow, as well as the surrounding, snow-capped mountains. For a closer look, take a boat tour out to where the wall of ice towers over you. The most adventurous travelers can hike on the glacier itself. Most of the park's walkways are wheelchair accessible. Put Perito Moreno Glacier into our Los Glaciares National Park online sightseeing planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • The glacier is extremely impressive - make sure to allow enough time and also take a boat trip. You feel really small in front of the huge ice masses and to witness the calving of the glacier is simply spectacular.

  • I was here in 2012 and it was spectacular. There are plenty of viewing platforms that offer amazing views of the ice calving into the lake.
  • I did seasonal work in Antarctica and saw plenty of glaciers over the months and still was in awe of the Perito Moreno Glacier. Well worth a visit. You can purchase bus tickets from the bus terminal, but I saw city buses stop regularly too. The bus stops at the park station to pay entrance fees. The walkways are extensive so even with a crowd you can find your own space away from them.
