Glacier Perito Moreno 

Ice – Ice – Ice

Nature is full of genius, full of devinity, so that not a snowflake escapes its fashioning hand. Henry David Thoreau

This morning we left to see the No. 1 tourist attraction of Argentine, the Perito Moreno Glacier.

We have been lucky enough to hike glaciers back home in Switzerland like the Unesco site Aletsch Glacier. So we did not know what to expect really.

But the view of this glacier was stunning! It was something very different from our previous experience. On the Aletsch glacier you walk on something like 200m of ice, but you don’t feel, you just somehow know.

Here inPatagonia, the mass of the glacier is visible, right in front of us. A huge, beautiful, scary and intimidating volume of ice flowing down the mountains at 2m a day – in all shades of blue.
