    Perito Moreno Glacier: Mini trekking in the most famous Argentinian Glacier

    Leave El Calafate to visit the Perito Moreno Glacier stopping to take photographs. Your guide approved by the National Park “Los Glaciares” will give you all the information about the surroundings, the history, and the myth of this unique glacier. After entering the zone of Patagonian woods, we will stop in the curve of the sighs to enjoy the first view of Perito Moreno Glacier. Once at “Bajo de las Sombras” port you board on a boat to cross the Lago Rico and arrive at the opposite shore after approximately a 20-minute navigation in front of the southern wall of the Perito Moreno Glacier.

    Once you disembark, you will be greeted by mountain guides, who will lead you to a shelter with sanitary facilities. From there, you will begin a brief walk along the shore of the lake, which includes a talk on glaciology in general and the Perito Moreno Glacier in particular. Upon reaching the edge of the glacier, the guides will form subgroups of a maximum of 20 people each and will fit you with crampon sand helmets. Once on the ice, you will receive a brief safety talk and will begin the walk.

    Always with the help of our mountain guides, you’ll enjoy this natural ice paradise. The trekking difficulty is moderate, the route on the glacier lasts approximately one and a half hours, and in its course, you will be able to appreciate a variety of typical formations of a glacier-like crack, sumps, seracs, lagoons, etc.

    At the end of the walk, you’ll return to the shelter along a walkway crossing the lush Patagonian Andean forest. Shortly afterward, you’ll board the boat to return to the port and see the glacier walls. This experience includes a one-hour guided visit to the walkways of the Perito Moreno Glacier, which is 5 miles from the port. There, you’ll enjoy the spectacular panoramic view of the glacier and walk along some of the self-guided paths. This tour is oriented for people who enjoy nature, adventure and who want to live the experience of walking on the ice of the most beautiful glacier in the world!
