    ... and closer to Fitzroy. There were some icy parts, in places hidden under snow. By the time we got to the 3rd kilometer marker, out of 9, it was clear we wouldn't finish in daylight. Not wanting to negotiate the ice in the dark, we headed back. It was still worth going for the views we were able to see up to that point. After getting back to town, Carolin and ...

    Perito Moreno Glacier

    A travel blog entry by hils80 on Mar 25, 2015

    ... I had been tempted by the mini trekking but it was so expensive. I wasn't fussed by the boat as Louise and Alex had said it wasn't worth it. Anyway on our way up we noticed another trail that went to the left side of the glacier. We didn't think it would take long but took longer than expected so I felt bad on Ellie. Was cool as went further down so could see better how high the glacier was. They needed cardboard cutouts of houses ...

    ... Moreno Glacier is about 50-70 metres high (about a 20 story building), 5 km wide and 20 km long, covering about 250 square kilometres.

    The boat ride was 1 hour ...

    ... a huge lake. It is 7yrs old & one of the older hotels in this rapidly growing city. The spa bath in our room is > 2 times bigger than mine ( & did not work! ) We then caught a taxi out to the Glasarium Museum & Ice Bar recommended to us by the English couple we met at Tierra Patagonia Hotel. (a good call) We spent nearly 2 hrs in the semi interactive museum that tells you all about the glaciers. By 4pm our turn to ...

    Amazing glacier trek

    ... glacier moves on average a few meters a day, which is quite rare for a glacier. A perk of this is that the glacier calves, or breaks up, pretty frequently. Multiple times a day pieces of the glacier break off and fall into the water below. We caught 2 or 3 huge breakups and many small ones. It is just amazing to watch and listen to. You hear the initial break, then see the ice ...
