Perito Moreno National Park, Perito Moreno

Marvel at the immense, ice blue cliff face of Perito Moreno National Park, 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.

  • 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.
