"Perito Moreno - a breathtaking spectacle" Top 5 Page for this destination El Calafate by Maggies

El Calafate Travel Guide: 278 reviews and 715 photos

Perito Moreno is the only inland glacier that is still growing. It comes down to 180 m over sea level and stops in the biggest lake in Argentina. There are more facts that are very impressive but the most impressive is the spectacle it makes.
It makes a constant sound, it's cracking, breaking, falling into the water and splashing. At the same time it's showing amazing colours, beautiful turquoise and all other shades of blue and white. It just feels like the glacier was alive, strong and fighting.
It makes a magical enchaning spectacle which you just can't stop admiring with a smile and your eyes and mouth wide open.

    You have composed a great page about El Calafate, Magda! I've been there myself about 8 months ago, and agree with everything that you have written about this place. Bye from The Netherlands!

    Sure, you tasted the berries but what about other local delights? ;> The town center really has changed. I'll have to get back there one day.
