The Perito Moreno Glacier, or Glaciar Perito Moreno, in Los Glaciares National Park is one of Argentina’s most prominent and enticing day trips and tourist attractions. It is roughly a 100-square-mile ice formation and represents the world’s third-largest reserve of fresh water in the form of an ice field. Tourists can visit the glacier and experience its wonder in a number of ways. This includes simply observing it from a series of constructed walkways from afar. Visitors can also opt to hike up the glacier on a trekking tour. The closest major town is El Calafate, which can be accessed by airplane or road. The glacier experience proves popular with nature enthusiasts and couples looking for a romantic memory to share.
