When people talk about glacier our guess is that they always mean the Perito Moreno glacier! And that is what you should talk about. When you will see pictures of this glacier you think that looks pretty amazing, but when you see the glacier with your own eyes you can’t believe it.
The glacier is about 5 kilometers wide and the height varies from 40-70 meter. The colors are amazing and when there is ice/snow breaking of and falling in the water people are all excited.
How to get to Perito Moreno
There is no public transport to the glacier. Caltur is one of the bus companies that will take people up to the glacier twice a day at 09.00 am and 13.00 pm. The return bus ticket is even more expensive then the entrance of the park at a hefty fee of 1000 peso (15 euro) per person. The trip will take about 90 minutes.
You can get here by car easily but from El Calafate is about 80 kilometer.
We decided to try our luck hitchhiking and we succeeded again.
