Unforgettable Locations: the Perito Moreno Glacier

As one of the most accessible ice fields in the world, the Perito Moreno glacier attracts thousands of tourists to Argentina every year to take in its rigid, icy peaks and the boisterous roars of falling ice bergs. This spectacular feat of nature, a sprawling wall of vivid blue ice, runs through the southern region of Los Glaciares National Park. Perito Moreno is an active glacier, moving up to two metres a day, sending massive pieces of ice into neighbouring Argentino Lake. When visiting the region, Perito Moreno should be at the very top of your to-do list.

The glacier is located approximately 80km from the town of El Calafate, a favourite among tourists. The town is easily accessible from El Calafete International Airport with regular service from major cities in Argentina and Chile. Once in El Calafete, travellers can conveniently take buses to the glacier, other areas of Los Glaciares National Park and surrounding tourist destinations.

Must-Visit Travel Destinations: The Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast stretches along the southern coastline of the Sorrento Peninsula and is known for its picturesque landscape. The expanse of vivid blue salt water, vertical climbing mountains, and a soft scent of lemon blossoms surround your senses. The region’s beauty has made this area a highly popular tourist destination and was declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and an outstanding example of a Mediterranean landscape.

Some say the real Amalfi thrill is the scenic drive, and whether by bus or by car, the roads will leave you breathless. Just beyond the hairpin curves of the narrow, Italian road lies a sheer 500-foot drop into the sparkling Mediterranean Sea. Hotels and villas are cantilevered amongst the vertical terrain. Beautiful sandy coves peek out here and there far below.

Must-Visit Travel Destinations: Chinchero Market

Spectacularly sited at an elevation of 12,500 feet, with a breath-taking view of snow-capped mountains, lies Chinchero, one of the most typical towns in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. In that town, bright and early each Sunday morning, the authentic, Chinchero Market spreads out before ancient, Inca ruins. Early each Sunday morning, local Indians meet to sell their handicrafts at the market, as they have done for centuries.

As one of the most traditional markets in all of South America, it has far fewer tourists and far more locals than the nearby town of Pisac. Artisans (or artisania) dressed in traditional, colorful clothing come to buy and sell their handmade crafts and produce.
