Most Amazing Glaciers In The World

A glacier is a large persistent body of ice. They form over many years, often centuries. Glaciers form only on land and should not be confused with icebergs which are huge bodies of ice that float on water. Glaciers and icebergs together hold most of Earth’s fresh waters. Here’s a list of the most amazing and famous glaciers in the world:

1. Perito Moreno Glacier, Argentina


Located 48 miles from the town of El Calafate. The Perito Moreno Glacier is a huge tourists attraction, most of which arrive to El Calafate to the soul purpose of visiting this Glacier. The tourists can view the glacier from a small boat on Lake Argentino, or from three viewing areas on land. Lucky visitors witness huge chunks of ice breaking from the glacier and plummeting into Lake Argentino. The more adventurous can go on a walk on the glacier, or a helicopter flight. The Perito Moreno is 30 km (19 mi) in length
