Perito Moreno glacier

700,000 people visit the Perito Moreno glacier every year. Yesterday it was our turn.

Simply take a bus from El Calafate and 90 minutes later you are absorbed by one of the natural wonders of the world. It’s constantly creaking and groaning and we saw two small break-offs in the 3 hours we were there.

At the edge, the ice is 70m high and some 3km wide. We loved the blue light within the cravases

For Roger this was quite simply the best natural wonder he had ever seen. Hilary judged it to be top five after the Grand Canyon, Ayers Rock and Mount Roraima
