Perito Moreno GlacierApprox. Time: 3 hours
Activity Level: Easiest

Perito Moreno Glacier, which has recently been declared a national heritage by UNESCO. Situated south of Lago Argentino, at a height of 80 metres above sea level it is contrary to other glaciers, the only growing glacier in the world.

In its advance it crosses the Canal de los Témpanos (Channel of the Floes) , obstructs the drainage of the Rico arm and it elevates the level of their waters up to 19 m on the normal height. Approximately every three years, the waters newly contained in the arm Rico can exercise the necessary pressure to break the wall of ice of more than 60 m of height and to spill out in the lake. The roar of the ice and the waters are such that is impossible to believe it: the old Indian gods allow to hear their voice and that of the current man, necessarily, stays silent .

Don't forget to prepare for the glacier climate -- bring warm clothes!
