Perito Moreno & Boat Ride

The tour in El Calafate begins after breakfast, when we pick you up at your hotel. Together with a guide, we head towards Los Glaciares National Park. We will drive along the scenic Route 11, which runs alongside the main course of Lago Argentino on our way to Brazo Rico. Once at the park, we will go to Curva de los Suspiros, where we descend the vehicle to take a first look to the Perito Moreno Glacier, which is certainly an amazing image. Later we will make another stop at the Muelle bajo las Sombras, to get on boar a boat and navigate close to the southern wall of the glacier. Once on the boat, we will approach to the stunning Perito Moreno ice walls, getting close enough to contemplate its immensity and also to observe the ice landslides that continually take place. As we get to the front wall , the boat will stop for a few minutes to get a better look at the landscape, giving us a very good opportunity to take interesting photographs and film the scene. Then we will go to the front catwalks of Perito Moreno Glacier, where we will see it from several balconies located at different heights, allowing to appreciate it from different angles, each more beautiful than the last one. Finally we will enjoy some free time to spot the different detachments that continually take place, and those who want to, can enjoy lunch at any of the restaurants near the runways. Estimated duration: 8 hours. Pick up at your hotel: from 09 am Read more

DAY 3

Perito Moreno Ice Trek

After the pick up at your hotel, we take you to the “Bajo de las Sombras” port, about 6 km before the glacier Balconies, where you embark for a 20 minutes boat ride across the Rico Arm, enjoying breathtaking views of the Perito Moreno glacier’s front wall. You disembark on the opposite shore where our specialized bilingual mountain guides welcome you and lead you to a small shelter. After checking the last details the groups of not more than 20 people, follow your guide along the lake’s shore towards the edge of the glacier. Once on the ice the guides put each participant a pair of crampons on and explain how to use them. The two hours circuit that follows introduces you to the fascinating landscape of the glaciers: streams, small lagoons, gullies, cravasses and plenty of ice formations of the most incredible blues. The ice surface over which you walk is irregular, but firm and safe. You will receive explanations about flora, fauna, general glaciology of the region and also about the particular phenomenon that happens in the Perito Moreno Glacier and eventually produces its rupture. After the walk, a stroll through the forest brings you back to the shelter. Estimated duration: 10 hours. Pick up at your hotel: from 07 am Read more
