The essence of the Glacier Perito Moreno excursion
A visit to Patagonia wouldn’t be complete without visiting the Glacier Perito Moreno. Thirty kilometres (19 miles) long and 5 kilometres (3 miles) wide, this behemoth ice structure moves up to 2mm a day, with ice breakouts that make for memorable action photography.
On any given day, massive icebergs carve off the glacier’s 60 meter (220 foot) face and crash into the Iceberg Channel with astonishing frequency, causing vast chunks of ice to accelerate fiercely across the landscape. Perched on leading-edge catwalks and overlooks, travellers can gaze on the spectacles and listen to the orchestra created by the rumbling river of ice.
