Perito Moreno Glacier (Argentina)

Make a trip Argentina and not see the glacier Perito Moreno would be like going to Paris and not visit the Eiffel tower. Or to be clearer, would miss one of the wonders of our planet.

All glaciers in Patagonia are from the 2 ice fields, north and south. On the other hand, those fields are mostly in Chile. We can find more than 50 glaciers; some end in lakes (Argentina and Chile) others in the sea (only in Chile).

The Perito Moreno Glacier is the more famous because of its easy access and it is really amazing. You may spend hours and hours contemplating the giant ice mass in constant motion: under this blue-turquoise colors, the ice compresses and the blocks broken, falling from more than 50 meters, all of that in an awesome crash.
Imagine being in front of an ice wall, with almost 5 km long and 70 meters tall... all amid an exiting brand of the end of the world.

I suggest you to do a mini trekking on the Perito Moreno glacier or another, to live a unique experience in the heart of this glacier mass.
The Perito Moreno glacier is one of the few glaciers in the world that does not back...

The landscapes of this southern Patagonia that are shared by Argentina and Chile are among some of the most beautiful and unspoiled in the world...

Patagonia in all seasons menu. For example, according to the climate, from Bariloche, in Patagonia Argentina, it is possible to go to Puerto Montt, in Chile, crossing successively three lakes by boat, as did the Jesuits and the first German settlers. I offer a tour that leads to the Pacific Ocean. It is quite long, but the beauty of the sites - forests, volcanoes and crystalline lakes - is such that it is worth to be carried. The Argentine side, cross the west arm of Nahuel Huapi and Lake Puerto Alegre and, the chilen side, Lake Todos los Santos. Moving from one lake to another by bus. This tour is feasible in all seasons, but in winter, it takes two days to reach Puerto Montt, stopping for one night at Peulla. We returned to Bariloche by air or by the same way, after a night in Puerto Montt. Borispatagonia is also responsible for visas to go to Chile and to book hotels. In Patagonia, winter and summer are tourist seasons. In summer, besides explore the surrounding, many activities are available: climbing, torrent fishing, sailing, horseback riding, hiking, rides, visits to Aciendas... In winter, the main activity is, of course, skiing, especially in July and August on the side of the Andes, but not only: snowshoe hikes, thematic tours, many walks to admire the beauty of Patagonia Argentina and Chile in this season, due a unique light, the warmth of the people of Patagonia... Just to talk about, I get goose bumps!
