Climb a Patagonian GlacierEl Calafate, Argentina

How can you top standing in the shadow of a monstrous Patagonian glacier measuring 250 square kilometres and a whopping 15 storeys high? By hiking it, of course.

From a boat on Argentino Lake, Perito Moreno Glacier looks impenetrable. Sharp, tooth-like peaks jut out of a seemingly endless wall of ice, and colossal chunks crumble into the water. But as the boat draws nearer, the peaks become more rounded and hikers appear like ants moving around the blue lagoons and caves. It’s time to strap on your crampons and straddle crevasses as you tackle Argentina’s most famous glacier.

Sign up for a 10-hour tour (about US$199) with Argentina4U to experience incredible ice formations, lagoons and streams, and pray this baby won’t rupture.

Your fitness and endurance will be tested as you clamber along the slippery paths in icy conditions.
