Perito Moreno – Argentina’s Incredible Glacier

What I have found most incredible about spending a month in Argentina is the discovery of how diverse – not to mention huge – this country is. I have seen maps of Argentina, of course, but it is only when you have spent 94 hours on buses, covering a distance of over 8000 kilometres, that the size really sinks in. Especially for somebody who comes from a country as tiny as the United Kingdom. Having covered the heaving city of Buenos Aires, the lush forest of Iguazu Falls, the rugged mountains of Bariloche and the barren plains of the Peninsula Valdes, it was extraodinary to find myself in the icy wilderness of the Perito Merino Glacier.

Here is a selection of my favourite photos from the glacier.

    These photos are fantastic! I used to live in Argentina, and there is still so much of the country that I haven’t explored. It really is such a massive and diverse place!
