El Calafate is the lovely town you drive through before hitting Los Glaciers National Park where there are beautiful Lagos and sites but the highlight is the famous Glaciar Perito Moreno, it measures 35km long, 5km wide and 60m high. What makes this Glaciar exceptional is that it's advancing 2m per day were most of the worlds Glaciars are receding. It's constantly dropping chunks of ice off its face....this is called calving.



We camped at the entrance of the Park so when it opened we were there the first to enter. ( a tidbit of info from other travellers)

We arrived and hiked down to the bottom platform and took in the spectacular giant Glaciar in front of us in silence ( or as much silence as possible with our Mr. Max 😊 lol.



We stayed in the park for 3hrs. exploring from all different vantage points of the Glaciar and waiting for it to calve.
