Glacier Perito-Moreno | photoreport
Get to the Perito Moreno Glacier is very simple. If you have rented a car, it just get to the city of El Calafate on the signs and go to the glacier . The journey takes about 2 hours , and maybe even less. If you have no car , you just need to get to the city center and you will see that it is designed only for two purposes : to eat or take the person to the Perito Moreno Glacier and El Chalten . So confused you do not succeed - just a city littered with " tourist booths " in which you sell a ticket where you like, and will not somehow cheat or cheat. Service is very developed and the first time I see this attitude in this matter .
Plane flies to the city of El Calafate. The article " El " can not add, but so accepted. It is located near a large lake called Argentino (a). Apparently , it is powered by glaciers and why we see such an unusual color of water.
The airport is located 4 kilometers from the city and so you need to buy a ticket for a mini- bus straight to the airport and did not have anything to do with the driver. Very comfortable . Bags fill up in a small trailer and drove off.
Desert terrain than it is similar to Australia , but without the red color of the iron . And then, on the edge of the road running ostriches .
Here is the color . Glacial lakes begin to cast different colors in moments of bad weather , when there are both sun and clouds .
Is not it beautiful?
And here is the El Calafate . As you can see - some restaurants and a " travel agency " .
When the bus came to the glacier , the weather was not the best, but do not get upset , in Patagonia weather changes every half hour.
And here already and the sun came out and the glacier showed itself in all its glory. Everything is done so that you can see the glacier from almost all sides , as here an extensive network of specially equipped iron balconies and walkways.
And now just look at Patagonia , on the way back
