A trip to this imposing glacier gives you a chance to walk on the ice wearing cleats and to see and hear a truly astounding spectacle: blocks of ice rupturing and floating away as icebergs.

Worth the entry fee but please take enough cash with you. When you arrive at the park boundary a national parks officer gets on the bus equipped with a smart phone and a tablet. However he asks for cash only! We thought we could pay...More

I would have given Perito Moreno Glaceir five stars but it is almost impossible to do on your own for cheap. You have to go with an agency, rent a car, or pay for the overpriced bus. The cheapest way, a 45 minute bus ride,...More

IMO, this glacier is special. Compared with all natural landscapes I've been, this is by far the most beautiful one.

This is third largest store of ice on Mother Earth after Antartica and Greenland. What makes this glacier special is its unique shape and frequent ruptures. Its so accessible you can have a day trip from Puerto Natales if you are in Chile or stay...More

This beautiful glacier is surreal. It's massive and you can see all the way back to the mountains. The sound it makes when pieces break off is astonishing, almost like gunfire or a cannon. The walkway the park was made gets you very close and...More

Ever wanted to feel like John Snow on the Wall? This glacier defies the boundary between reality and imagination, it's just awesome. We went in autumn and actually caught the first snow of the year, adding to the experience. Glacier itself is located 80 km...More

Like any glaciar it's a great site to contemplate, but what sets Perito Moreno apart is the location which is quite accessible, you not only get to see it by boat (which I would advise), but also have some walkways on the opposite site which...More

Hiking on the glacier - you'll have crampons on and ski poles. I dressed for both hot and cold - the sun can beat down on the glacier - but it's still a glacier with a couple inches of wet, slushy snow on top. Ski pants... More

By the trek do you mean the boardwalks? We viewed the glacier from both the boat and the boardwalks and both are awesome experience. The boardwalk is easy but actual trekking on the glacier cannot be done in winter as it is... More
