My favorite part of my trip to Argentina was hiking on Perito Moreno Glacier. Seeing the glacier for the first time, hearing it crackle, watching pieces fall into the surrounding water, walking on it, and drinking the water from it was truly a full-sensory experience. I felt like I was walking through a Georgia O’Keefe painting where piercing blue crevasses separated snow capped peaks.
We went through a tour company called Hielo y Aventura, which I would definitely recommend. They picked us up from our hotel, drove us in a nice bus to various lookout points, supplied us with crampons (and put them on our shoes),* guided us on the glacier, and gave us scotch on the rocks at the top!
* At first the crampons that tied onto our shoes felt a little weird, but by the end of the day, I didn’t want to give them back.
