Patagonia - El Calafate - Perito Moreno Glacier

Sunday 18th Feb

Spent the afternoon at the Perito Moreno Glacier, one of the largest in the world. There are wooden walkways where you can get down quite close to the front. The sound is incredible and you can hear the thunderous cracking as the Glacier moves. Huge chunks of ice break off reagularly and fall into the water below. We were lucky enough to see this three times in the three hours we stayed there, and I caught one on film!
