After a short boat ride across the lake, this is where the journey of Perito Moreno begins. From here, you take a quick bathroom break at the lodge and drop off your backpacks, before heading out with your guide to hike the glacier. With the combination of the red stone cobbled shores, the vibrant aqua blue glacier wall of 200 feet plus and the snow capped mountains that loomed large around us, my visual senses were going off like a five alarm fire. If you are wondering how Perito, plus other glaciers are so aqua blue in color, it is due to its ice being massively dense, with a crystalline structure that absorbs every other color of the spectrum except blue.
