Overview

The 250 km2 (97 sq mi) ice formation, 30 km (19 mi) in length, is one of 48 glaciers fed by the Southern Patagonian Ice Field located in the Andes system shared with Chile. This ice field is the world’s third largest reserve of fresh water… Yes, but more important is that you’re very close when visiting this colossus of ice. There are many trails to enjoy this incredible glacier.

The Perito Moreno Glacier, located 78 kilometers (48 mi) from El Calafate, was named after the explorer Francisco Moreno, a pioneer who studied the region in the 19th century and played a major role in defending the territory of Argentina in the conflict surrounding the international border dispute with Chile.

itinerary

We start around 09:00 hs from your hotel in El Calafate and go directly to Los Glaciares National Park, where you can find the Perito Moreno Glacier. During the trip of 80 km, you will be able to appreciate the Patagonian steppe and mountains view.

Leaving town, we can see the Argentino Lake along with the Bahia Redonda, where it is possible to observe a large variety of birds and yellow fields due to their pasture called coirón.

On the first 40 km, we will cross the Patagonian steppe, and once inside the National Park, we will observe prominent species of trees belonging to the “notofagus” family (ñires, lengas, guindos).
Once arrive at the glacier area, we can enjoy its majesty and walk through the balconies to have different views of the front side of it.
