Today we spend with your local guide exploring the massive Perito Moreno Glacier, the size of over 35000 football pitches. Named after the explorer Francisco Moreno, the glacier is unusual as it it one of only a few in the world that are advancing (not retreating). We visit various sections of the glacier where the silence is disturbed only by the creaking and groaning of ice which splinters, forming icebergs as we watch. The most dramatic section of all is where the glacier ice ruptures into Lake Argentino. 

Day 12 - Boat trip to Upsala & Spegazzini

After breakfast, we take an invigorating boat trip on Lago Artentino to observe the Upsala and Spegazzini Glaciers. There are superb photo opportunities today as you get close to these natural wonders as their ice decends into the lake. Both these glaciers are retreating, which many scientists give as evidence for global warming. It really is a wonderful day's exploration today.
