    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 ...

    ... 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.

We also noted that at 50 degrees latitude South, El Calafate is the most southern point of the globe that either of us have ever been. A worthy milestone that we celebrated with a tasty local artisan beer. ...

    ... unhindered once again. The last time there was a big build up and complete blockage was 2012. The pressure eventually causes it to crack and break.
    The Perito Moreno Glacier was amazing to see, glistening in the sunshine, with it's many beautiful blue hues and spires. The wall of the glacier is 5 kms wide and 80 metres high at the edge of the frosty green Lake Argentino. The glacier is not the biggest but the most famous in Argentina because 1. It's easy to get to ...

    ... I may have had a small chuckle at their names when they introduced themselves. Neither of them spoke a word of Spanish and were panicking about organising their glacier trekking tour tomorrow because their original booking fell through. The museum itself was great and gave me an appreciation for how glaciers were actually made and how big they were. (I had only really seen the front edge of the grey glacier in Torres del Paine). Basically when there is lots ...
