Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Patagonia / Province of Santa Cruz / Perito Moreno / Perito Moreno National Park
Marvel at the immense, ice blue cliff face of Perito Moreno National Park, which spills out into Argentino Lake. Every so often the sound of thunder echoes all around as a slab of ice cleaves off and plunges into the water below. Explore the walkways of the national park that faces the 250 sq km (97 sq mi) glacier, providing many different viewpoints and perspectives from which to admire the ice flow, as well as the surrounding, snow-capped mountains. For a closer look, take a boat tour out to where the wall of ice towers over you. The most adventurous travelers can hike on the glacier itself. Most of the park's walkways are wheelchair accessible. PutPerito Moreno National Park into our Perito Moreno online sightseeing planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

One of the wonders of the world GREAT place to visit in March when the school holidays finished. A boat trip and glacier walk is a must. more »
I was here in 2012 and it was spectacular. There are plenty of viewing platforms that offer amazing views of the ice calving into the lake.
I did seasonal work in Antarctica and saw plenty of glaciers over the months and still was in awe of the Perito Moreno Glacier. Well worth a visit. You can purchase bus tickets from the bus terminal, but I saw city buses stop regularly too. The bus stops at the park station to pay entrance fees. The walkways are extensive so even with a crowd you can find your own space away from them.
