6. Perito Moreno Glacier, El Calafate
El Calafate, a town named after the famous Argentine black berry. It is located near the famous Perito Moreno glacier. Named after the 19th century explorer Francisco Moreno, Perito Moreno spans 250 km2. It is the largest glacier in the region and one of the most important tourist attractions in Patagonia Argentina.
We spent a full day visiting Perito Moreno Glacier at the Perito Moreno National Park by cruise and also by driving up to the mountain to have the best view of Perito Moreno glacier. Many tourists from around the world gathered here to see the glacier. The best way to go to El Calafate is by air.
