The Wall

After 3 hours flight, we arrived in El Calafate. This town is famous for being close to the Perito Moreno Glacier that we can visit in a day trip.
The next day, we took a bus to drive the 80km to the glacier. The trip is beautiful from Argentinian steppe to blue lakes.

We spent a total of 5h at the Perito Moreno walking around to discover this giant from every angle. It is 5km wide and a total of 250 km2!
We are astonished watching this huge and stunning glacier. We are so far away from everything!
We could feel it is alive: when some pieces of the glacier felt down, we could hear like thunderstorm. It was an amazing experience, just watch the pictures!

The following day, we walked around the Laguna Nimez reserve, close to the lake. We saw horses, lots of birds and a dog which didn’t want to leave us.
