Perito Moreno puts other glaciers to shame. I did the ice hiking in New Zealand, and I've also seen smaller glaciers in the US and Europe. None of them compare to Perito Moreno. Not only is PM absolutely massive (literally continues beyond the horizon), but the fact that it ends in a lake makes it significantly more dramatic. When you first arrive …

... We were watching in hope that a huge part of it would break and crash into the water but this only really happens once every few years. It was still quite intimidating to hear the glacier though (let alone see it), with constant crackles and thundering bangs sounding from within it.

... us up steep terrain for the first hour, passing through the forest with views, along the way, of the incredibly sharp peaks and blue glacier filled bowls of the Fitz Roy Range, towering over the winding river of the same name. Within two hours, we had arrived at the Laguna Capri, where we stopped for lunch, then began our descent back into town.

The walk down surprised us with sightings of numerous birds we had never seen before, nor could we identify until the next ...

Well the bus transfer from the Chilean Border to El Calafate was adventurous...the driver's speedo didn't work and he was driving wherever he felt like...middle of the road, wrong side of the road...his windscreen was cracked and I don't think he had any suspension left! Every time we passed a bus/truck we would swerve all over the road due to the wind. We were told that the wind in Patagonia is known to roll parked buses over! But we made it... El Calafate reminds me ...

... parts of it, and attached many photos but we said nothing about its main part - prairie. The prairie has a huge size - from the Atlantic Ocean to Andes. The landscape is routine - hills covered with thorns. All this area belongs to private owners. There are no farms there, just sometimes you can see herds of sheeps, caws or horses.
