Travel Photo of the Day: Perito Moreno Glacier in Los Glaciers National Park

Perito Moreno Glacier in the Los Glaciares National Park near Calafate, Argentina Patagonia.


One of the greatest glaciers we visited in Patagonia was Perito Moreno Glacier in Glaciers National Park near El Calafate, Argentina.  Boats allow you to get up close and gain a better perspective of the glacier’s size and structure.  Large crevasses reach deep into the ice field, but continually fall off as the glacier slowly slides.  The crushed mountain gravel produced from the glacier’s sliding eventually deposits into the water creating a cloudy turquoise color.

Great photo-all the blue makes it feel cold!

I guess you just don’t realise the scale of the glacier until you’re up close and personal, amazing shots.

Jason says:

Taking the ferry up to the glacier wall was an incredible experience. It’s huge. You can also go hiking with ice shoes on top of the crater.

Andi says:
