Argentina - El Calafate

16 °C

A great setting, small town with wooden buildings, we checked into our hostel which turned out to be a bit of a dive and walked the town. A lot of touristy shops but with the surrounding glaciers, no wonder!

As it turns out, the famous Perito Moreno Glacier had just had its biggest ice fall in 4 years the day before us, so we were in for a treat (the news even made it to Australian news sites). The largest fall meant the whole glacier was unstable so from the moment we arrived we witnessed massive chunks falling off into the water creating huge waves.

The glacier was is incredible, massive, jaw dropping and we sat in awe for hours. The maze of raised wooden pathways allowed us to see it from different angles and all were breathtaking. An experience we won't forget...
