TEAM GUANACO VISITS THE PERITO MORENO GLACIER

Hi everybody!
Today, the team visited the Perito Moreno Glacier which is one of the most famous landmarks in Patagonia. They first went on a nautical safari to get a closer view of the south side of the glacier and then walked on the foot bridges from where they could see both sides of it. They could hear and see big chunks of ice plummeting into the waters of Lago Argentino.
The scale of the glacier was impressive. The glacier’ snout for example is as tall as the obelisk in Buenos Aires (221 feet).
Please take a look at the pictures below. We hope you enjoy them.
Thanks for tuning in!
All the best
