Another of Argentina’s undoubted natural spectacles, Glacier Perito Moreno, can be found in the far south of the country. The Parque Nacional Los Glaciares in Patagonia provides a unique opportunity for visitors to experience the breathtaking ice fields of the Andes at close hand. The strategically situated walkways enable visitors to watch and listen to this most dynamic of glaciers as it changes its form and the Visitor’s Center offers informative educational information.

Various boat and trekking tours (of varying lengths and with guides) are available which give you the chance to explore and photograph the glacier from alternative angles. Other glaciers in the vicinity can also be viewed but Perito Moreno is renowned for its outstanding beauty and hence is most popular among tourists. The easiest way to arrive in the area is by flying to the nearby town of El Calafate, located two hours from the Glacier.

Regular flights to El Calafate are available from Aeroparque Jorge Newbery in Buenos Aires and it’s possible to find reasonable deals with agencies, especially during the off-peak season (i.e. not during the southern hemisphere summer months). There is plenty of accommodation in the town, as one might expect for a tourist-orientated destination, but don’t expect to find cheap rates as the south of the country is generally more expensive (also note that these prices can also vary significantly between peak and off-peak seasons).

Airfare is not included in the tour price.
