The Mighty Perito Moreno Glacier Close-up Navigation Experience

  • Take in the sheer size and beauty of the Perito Moreno Glacier from an exciting close-up perspective

Take in the sheer size and beauty of the Perito Moreno Glacier as it towers before you, from an exciting close-up perspective, as we cruise across the pristine waters of the Rico Branch of the Argentino Lake. Bordering the southern wall of the Perito Moreno Glacier, this will definitely make for a different point-of-view from what you saw on the panoramic boardwalks, testing your imagination in terms of how large a glacier can be!

The sheer magnitude of the southern wall alone is a humbling and inspiring sight. We’ll be stopping about 985 feet (300 meters) away from the southern wall of the glacier for some epic picture-taking opportunities that will showcase the grand scale and beauty of the glacier.

If we’re lucky, this side of the glacier also provides us with thunderous, roaring sounds; with large chunks of frigid ice falling off of the walls, and into the cold waters below. So, be prepared, ready your camera… these are memories in the making!
