South America Things to Do: 121 reviews and 163 photos
We only nipped into Argentina for the day - 8 hours there and 8 hours back from Puerto Natales in Chile, but worth every moment of the journey. The huge and awe-inspiring Moreno Glacier sits 60 metres high and audibly crunches and grinds its way down to Canal de los Témpanos and Brazo Rico, where it deposits its sediment, changing the colour of the water to a chalky, blue-grey. The boat that takes trips to the front of the glacier is dwarfed by the huge ice flow and there is a palpable sense of expectation from the gathered tourists that a chunk may fall, crashing into the water with an expolsive roar.
