Lago Argentino appears in the background. The Perito Moreno Glacier is approx. 250 square kilometres large and 30 kilometres long. It represents an outlet glacier of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field and calves into the lake along an ice front of 5 km length which sometimes impounds one lake branch, leading to episodic breakthroughs.
