The Glaciers National Park
The absolute "star" of all the Glaciers in the park is the Perito Moreno, over the south branch of Lake Argentino. It has an imposing front wall of 5 km. and it is 60 meters tall.

Minitrekking on Perito Moreno Glacier
Specialized guides take the group (approximately 20 people) along a coast path that leads to the southern margin of the glacier after a 30 minutes trip. There, helped by experts, metallic nails in shoes are put, necessary to walk on ice.

Also, the basic technique to use them is explained and a speech about glacier origin, regional flora and fauna is given.

From there, you begin to climb towards the glacier slowly, walking for about two hours, stopping occasionally just to take some pictures.

It's a unique opportunity to appreciate the different formations of the glacier (drains, cracks, etc.) and the varied tonalities of the ice that constitute a show by themselves.
