Perito Moreno Glacier Tour

per person CLP$ 100.000 :: USD$175

Description

Full day. Perito Moreno Glacier Excursion (Argentina).

A journey through the Patagonian steppe to the Perito Moreno Glacier, Argentina, to appreciate one of the most impressive natural shows in South America.

The Perito Moreno Glacier offers a spectacle of images and sounds. The light ice slides occur permanently, so it is very possible to witness this particular phenomenon of nature. The uniqueness of the glacier not only lies in its 30 km long and easy access, but also in the fact that it is one of the few that is advancing, while most of the world’s glaciers are retreating. The footbridges, balconies and viewpoints installed in the national park allow even the elderly or the physically handicapped to approach the Perito Moreno without danger.
