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.

We hired a car to visit the Perito Moreno Glacier. And honestly I don't know if in the end it was any cheaper. The road from El Calafate to the National Park where the Glacier is is quite straight forward. No risk to get lost. We had to pay 'cash' the entrance to the park and were given detailed instructions... More

Perito Moreno Glacier is a must see thing in Patagonia. We drove our rented car from El Calafate and saw lots of beautiful landscapes and some wild life along the road incl. condors. The glacier itself is just incredible. You can come pretty close to it through metal boardwalks across the glacier, from which you can see and hear the... More

This was one of the highlights of our South American adventure. It is a must, the set up is excellent, travel on a boat close to the Glacier, then walk the paths around the glacier. Listen to the ice cracking then look for the ice to fall, such a wonderful experience, we wished we had more time to sit and... More

The Glacier was great once we finally got to it. We were sold a tour package through Nibepo Aike Estancia where we stayed for 3 days. It was $170 per person. We were supposed to get a boat disembarking directly from the ranch that would take us on a beautiful boat ride on 2 arms of the lake to the... More

Incredible views from the metal boardwalks (pasarelas) on the peninsula across from the glacier - you can see all sides and get pretty close. Absolutely impressive both to see and hear.

Firstly, yes it is an expensive excursion with a 500 peso entry for foreigners and either a 450 peso bus ride or an alternative way. We were a group of 4 so hired a cab from next to the bus terminal for 1500 pesos. The driver waits for 3 hours in the car park and then drives you back and... More

One of the top things I would recommend seeing on a Patagonia trip, and probably the most accessible of all the excursions you can do in the region. Hiking on the glacier was different than anything I've ever done and was so memorable. I believe Hielo y Aventura is the only company running treks on the glacier. They run a... More

The trip out to Perito Moreno was so worth it. It was really beautiful, even my young kids loved it. Although really windy, we had really great weather and the walk around the glacier was enjoyable.

The visit to this Glacier is well worth it. The glacier itself is stunning and getting excellent views is made easier by the walkways. What I wouldn't bother with is the boat trip. It was a waste of time.

Amazing views, and great points of view set by the park. I only wish getting there wasn't as expensive as 450pesos by bus, or a bit less by a cab or rental car. Very impressive, and different than the other glaciers in the area by its magnitude and the huge dam it forms! Recommend for view! A bit expensive, with... More
