If you plan to take a trip to El Calafate (Santa Cruz), it is good that before you know some things about this incredible place. For example, location, weather, and tourist attractions.

From all of them, we select 5 tips to get the most out of your stay at the Perito Moreno Glacier.
Tip 1: Wait for the landslides
Juanjo Moreno from Palma de Mallorca, Spain, visited the Perito Moreno Glacier last November. His main advice is to be patient. Although they make you wait, observing the ice shedding live is worth it.
Tip 2: Do minitrekking
Herrerop 2009 from Santander, Spain, also visited the Glacier in November and called it “a fantastic experience”. His advice is to take the crampon minitrekking excursion. The landscape is beautiful, although walking is much better.
Tip 3: Be prepared for the cold
jmm_madrid is from Madrid, Spain. She says it is quite cold, a wet cold that penetrates the bones. It is worth watching for minutes how a block of ice is shed and listening to the noise it produces. Of course, you must be warm.
Tip 4: Reserve a place to have lunch
Andrea Alexia She made the excursion to the Glacier with a short navigation of one hour and was delighted. What he advises, especially those who care about food, is to reserve a place to eat. There are so many tourists that tables are scarce.
Tip 5: Visit the south face of the glacier
Vivis He has taken the ferry tour of the Glacier. He recommends observing the south face through the "footbridges". A privileged place to see more icefalls.
