Travel Tips for visiting Perito Moreno Glacier

Discover the Perito Moreno, the most "living" of Patagonia's glaciers: it is constantly advancing on Lake Argentina and grows by about two metres every day. The incredible geology of this glacier, which is 30 km long and 5 km wide and has icy walls some 60 metres high, is often mentioned. 
Whether you discover it on foot or in a boat, the spectacle is truly unique, as the face of the Perito Moreno changes a little each day.

The glacier was named after the explorer Francisco Moreno who came to study the region in the 19th century.

With its vertiginous peaks, mysterious caves and impressive crevasses, the Perito Moreno glacier makes us revise our synonyms: the word "blue" will not be enough to describe all the shades that can be observed there. From the lightest, almost translucent, to the darkest, blue underlines the contrasts of an element in all its states.
Of a blue that is both transparent and deep, the nevé expels the air from the glacier under the pressure of the accumulated snowfall. 
Real columns of ice rise up from the glacier like sculpted walls, and you can regularly hear pieces of ice being detached: a perfectly unforgettable sensory journey. One of those moments when one can only bow to the beauty of the elements.

On the outskirts of the glacier, the Los Glaciares Natural Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, offers superb hiking trails... and many other glaciers to discover. Without doubt one of the most beautiful destinations at the end of the world!

So, if you are a lover of nature and snowy landscapes, don't hesitate and discover the Perito Moreno and take a boat trip or a trekking tour.
