Perito Moreno Glacier is found in Argentina located in the Los Glaciares National Park. The glacier is 97 square miles (250 sq km) and measures 19 miles (30 km) in length. Additionally, the glacier measures 3 miles (5 km) wide with a total ice depth of 558 feet (170 m). The deepest part of the glacier measures 2,297 feet (700 m).
Perito Moreno Glacier is one of three Patagonian glaciers that is not retreating. This ice field accounts for the world's third largest reserve of fresh water. - in:

Valdes Peninsula was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999.
To watch sea-lions in this peninsula, the best time of the year is October as this is the time of procreation.
