The Perito Moreno Glacier: amazing balance and rarity in the glaciological world with its phenomenon of rupture.

“A curious fact about the Perito Moreno Glacier is that it is one of the few glaciers in the world that is still in balance, meaning that its advance and retreat are constant and remain in equilibrium over time. Additionally, every so often it experiences a spectacular phenomenon known as “rupture“, where large blocks of ice break off from the glacier and fall into the water, generating a deafening sound and an impressive visual spectacle.

Another additional fact about the Perito Moreno Glacier is that it has been the subject of study for scientists for many years, and thanks to its stability and accessibility, important research has been conducted on climate change, geology, and biology in Argentine Patagonia. Furthermore, this glacier is considered one of the most beautiful and visited places in South America, and has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.”

Tips:

The walkways of the Perito Moreno Glacier have a total length of approximately 4 kilometers, distributed across different circuits and heights levels so that visitors can observe the glacier from different angles and perspectives. The walkways are located at a safe distance from the glacier to ensure the safety of visitors, but close enough to appreciate its majesty and beauty.
