(duration about 2h 30min) The Glaciarum Museum is the

and Patagonia ice. It has a privileged location,
situated close to El Calafate town (20 minutes drive) on

Day 6: Calafate – Perito Moreno - Calafate (B)
Today guests will go on a full day tour to the Perito Moreno
Glacier. After a drive through the National Park Los Glaciares
one arrive all of a sudden in a forest full of colours, before
one sees - equally unexpected - the glacier Perito Moreno. This
is one of the few glaciers that are still growing. Every 4 to 5
years it covers the gap between the mainland and itself and
grows into the Lago Argentino. Eventually the ice cannot resist
the enormous pressure of the water and crashes with a
frightening noise. One can watch this glacier spectacle every
day when single ice blocks fall into the lake. Considering that
the glacier is 5 km long and 70 m high one can imagine the noise
this makes. Here we will have 2 hours to experience the glacier
before driving back to Calafate.
