The Perito Moreno Glacier

El Calafate, Argentina

The Perito Moreno Glacier isn’t the largest glacier in Patagonia, but its easy access and imposing 200-foot facade have made it the most famous. There are tours that depart from El Calafate in southern Argentina, taking intrepid travelers across the glacial lake by boat before they gear up for the trek on this impressive beast. Traversing a surface that resembles the moon’s, hikers can explore the deep caverns and jagged tundra before celebrating the end of their 5-hour journey with a shot of Jameson — over glacier ice, of course.
