Took in most of the boardwalk, the upper and lower decks, and both welcome centers. Very nice layout, I was surprised I walked over 3.5 miles with a nearly 1,000' elevation gain. Spectacular glacier, about 100 square miles in area and you can see a lot of it as you climb the boardwalk. It calves often, moves, sounds like a 45 pistol sometimes, fireworks other times, then giant chunks cleave off. Really cool and really wide. One of the few glaciers that is growing some although it's getting thinner. A must see.

Ubicado sobre el Lago Argentino, en la provincia de Santa Cruz, en Argentina, se encuentra esta maravilla natural.
Hay varias opciones. se pueden recorrer distintos circuitos sobre pasarelas, muy fáciles de reconocer ya que están divididas por colores.
Cada una nos muestra el glaciar desde diferentes perspectivas.
Recorrer las pasarelas es un buen complemento a los minitrekking o big ice , caminatas sobre el glaciar.

The mini-trek on the glacier is fabulous. Then views from the boardwalk give another perspective. I’ve been to glaciers in Alaska and Canada and nothing compares to this place!

I recommend taking the red trail. It contains the lowest and closest views (as seen on my recording, not sure why it lapses). One gets a great perspective.

Must Do .. Walking round and gaining a view of the Moreno Glacier is a great experience and the trail is very well laid out .. However, if you make the trip all the way down, highly recommend to complete the trek onto the glacier .. an amazing life experience.

I went during February when it was the summertime in Patagonia. There were few parking spots so one has to show early but the trail and view of the glacier is a step away from the parking lot. The trail is on metal walkways and you can't get to close because there is ice constantly falling. It was incredible to see so much ice that extends so far back. The glacier's wind was absolutely cold, even during the summer. The glacier lake that it feeds is a stunning site to just sit down and witness all day. It is a life-changing experience to see Perito Moreno.
