The Tour To Glaciar Perito Moreno is a trip across the Patagonian steppe to Glaciers National Park in Argentina, to see one of the most spectacular natural sites in all of South America.
This is a full-day outing leaving Puerto Natales at 7 am and returning to the hotel at about 10 pm. Aftr passing through the border controls at Cerro Castillo (Chile) and Cacha Carrera (Argentina) the highway crosses the immense Patagonian steppe to enchanting tourist town of El Calafate, some 270 km from Puerto Natales. During the trip we expect to see local fauna such as guanacos (wild relatives of llamas) and ñandúes (Darwin’s rhea) as well as the sights of Lago Argentino and the Santa Cruz river, whose waters flow to the Atlantic Ocean.
The Perito Moreno glacier presents a marvelous spectacle of sights and sounds, with nearly constant icefall from the face of the glacier, allowing you to witness one of the true wonders of nature.
The glacier is extraordinary not only for its length of 30 km and easy access but also because it is one of the few tath is advancing, while the majority of the world’s glaciers are retreating. The walkways, overlooks, and other observation platforms in the national park allow visitors to safely get quite close to the Perito Moreno glacier, and provide access for elderly and handicapped persons.
