Santa Cruz
There are experiences that mark us, fascinate us and accompany us for the rest of our lives: knowing the Perito Moreno Glacier is one of them. This excursion is one of the most impressive of all Patagonia and does not compare with (almost) anything we can find anywhere else in the world. Located inside Los Glaciares National Park, in the province of Santa Cruz, it is the most imposing glacier, with a front of 5 km and a height of more than 60 meters above the water level. But what makes it world famous are its rupture processes. In its constant advance, when reaching the coast, the front of the glacier closes the passage of the waters of the Rico arm of Lake Argentino and produces a kind of reservoir with a difference in water level with respect to the rest of the lake, which exceeds 20 meters. This is when the filtration originates, culminating in the expected rupture. The spectacle is continuous: it is possible to watch the detachment of ice blocks of different sizes from very close up, listen to the roar they produce when they fall and then watch them transformed into marvelous floating icebergs. The captivating experience may be appreciated from different balconies prepared to receive the thousands of tourists who come to know this wonder. The excursion may be made through regular, special or alternative services of different companies; or by private or rented car. The place has a restaurant, snackbar, restrooms and a day stay area located 7 km from the viewpoint.
