Most travel dreams begin with a Destination. There’s the desire to experience something spectacular, unforgettable, and life-changing… At a time when we are all contemplating the privilege of travel with renewed appreciation, no matter the weather, we can easily imagine a sustainable future for tourism for all seasons.
Introducing a destination whose travel content is spectacularly showcased in Wetu:
The Perito Moreno Glacier
Vast, magical, and awe-inspiring, the Perito Moreno Glacier is located in the UNESCO-listed Los Glaciares National Park on Argentina’s Southern Patagonian Ice Field. Its impressive 250km² of ice formation and 73m of average height, makes it the world’s third largest fresh water reserve. It also celebrates the unusual distinction of being one of few glaciers that continue to accumulate mass and maintain a state of equilibrium. In other words, it advances – at a glacial pace.
It may be frozen, but not to the spot. When it snows (faster than it can melt), a geological tango causes the compressed snow and ice build-up behind the glacier to gravitate down the mountain until it ruptures and sends giant ice chunks crashing into Lago Argentina with a spectacular thud! Thousands of spectators make the trip hoping to catch sight of a ‘calve’. A boardwalk circuit gets them close to the glacier tongue, or they can cruise the lake and visit ice caves. Adrenalin junkies can test their mettle on the glacier and combine hiking, trekking or ice climbing with the thrilling sound of a dynamic, icy mass cracking underfoot.
