Hike the Perito Moreno Glacier


The majestic Perito Moreno Glacier stands in the heart of Patagonia. Located in the famed Los Glaciares National Park, this 3-mile-wide expanse of ice looks like something out of a fantasy movie. Our local agencies will be able to advise you in choosing the most suitable route for your endurance level and your interests. For example, you could opt for a 1.5-hour walk along the length of the glacier or a 5-hour hike. The latter option allows you to take in the entirety of this unique environment, where the horizon blends in with the ice and its shades of blue.

Whatever you choose, you'll be surrounded by ice fields as far as the eye can see; the only sound will be pieces of ice breaking off and falling into Argentino Lake. For the best experience, make your ascent of the glacier early in the morning; the tranquility of the place is even more pronounced at sunrise, offering you a truly mesmerizing experience.
