    ... also known as a ranch. It is one of the biggest in the area. We even saw some animals along the way including rheas, eagles, and a grey fox. We stopped for a bathroom and snack beak at a little rustic place along the way. There was almost like a petting zoo outside the doors of the place as the goats allowed you to pet them or would come up and stand beside you and the guanaco. The guanaco and one of the goats kept trying to get inside, ...

    ... country steppe. It was a memorable day, partly for the change in the landscape, and partly because it was the furthest either Matt of John had ever ridden in a single day. Sunday 8th February. Perito Moreno Glacier. Matt and John woke feeling tired, whilst Nadine woke up still choking and wheezing. There was only one thing for it: a visit to the Perito Moreno glacier. After an 85 kilometre bus ride, we arrived at the drop off point: four kilometres of walkways set about two ...

Our journey into the Perito Merino National Park to view this impressive feature up close entailed a bus ride, then an hour in a boat taking us to within 500 metres ...

    A 9.30 pick up to go to the Perito Moreno Glacier. It is an 80 km drive to the glacier, into the Los Glaciers National Park where we drove along the Brazo Rico which is a tributary of Lago Argentino. The park has been declared as Mankind Heritage by UNESCO. When the Perito Moreno glacier slowly grows it cuts off the narrow area where the peninsular and glacier meet and then the water builds up on the Brazo Rico side until it eventually breaks through. Sometimes it ...

    Preparing for glaciers and trekking in the wilds

    A travel blog entry by lizlivinglife on Dec 25, 2014

    ... bus to Puerto Natales where we were to get ready for our trekking in Torres del Paine. We were now in Chile so first priority money. No joy with my cash card so mega charges to get cash on the credit card. Not sure why when it worked perfectly well previously. Then lunch in a delightful vegetarian cafe where everything was home made and the comfy settees and book exchange made me wish there was longer to sit and chill but no it was onward to find a walking pole to ...
