Perito Moreno Glacier, Argentina
Located in the Los Glaciares National Park, the Perito Moreno glacier is three miles wide and has a depth of approximately 558 feet. If you’d like to get a closer look at the vivid cerulean ice pack then head to the northern end of Perito Moreno, where there is a glacier cave that visitors can either explore by foot or by boat.
The most pleasant time to visit the glacier is from November to March, temperatures are more mild during these months and on a sunny afternoon you’re more likely to hear the deep thunderous sound of cracking ice, due to the fact that Perito Moreno Glacier is actually one of the few advancing glaciers in the world, so as the size increases, the front of the glacier gains large cracks and crevasses that eventually cave off creating an exciting natural show.
Visiting at this time of year also means that you will be treated to the sight of an abundance of beautiful alpine flowers flanking the glacier.
