A trip to this imposing glacier gives you a chance to walk on the ice wearing cleats and to see and hear a truly astounding spectacle: blocks of ice rupturing and floating away as icebergs.

We hired a car to visit the Perito Moreno Glacier. And honestly I don't know if in the end it was any cheaper. The road from El Calafate to the National Park where the Glacier is is quite straight forward. No risk to get lost....More

Incredible views from the metal boardwalks (pasarelas) on the peninsula across from the glacier - you can see all sides and get pretty close. Absolutely impressive both to see and hear.

We are going March 23rd, flying into FTE on their first flight, will I have enough time to enjoy all that I need to see and fly back out the same day. Also what are the temps around that time of the month. I see others are saying to just use the local taxi drivers as your tour guide, we are fluent in Spanish, If needed any places to stay overnight Thanks,

One day is enough to go to the National Park lookout and walk to the glacier if you use a taxi but not enough time to do the boat ride to the Three Glaciers which is terrific.
We am travelling around South America and thinking of going to El Calafate / Perito Moreno Glacier in July 2017. I have been told it will be too cold and that the Glacier wont be open at that time of year. I have tried to look for tours but I havent been able to find any that go from El Calafate to Perito Moreno at that time. Is it worth it? Or should be just head straight to Bolivia instead. Thanks
