The tour begins with a pick-up from the agreed meeting point in El Calafate. You’ll enjoy a comfortable ride in our buses, and a bilingual tourist guide will provide you with insights about the breathtaking landscape you’re about to explore.

Upon arriving at the “Bajo las Sombras” Port, which is only 7km from the Glacier, you’ll embark on a ship to cross the Brazo Rico. After a short 20-minute voyage, you’ll step onto the opposite shore.

We organize small groups, typically with up to 10 people, to ensure an intimate experience. Your glacier adventure commences from the southern moraine, and in just over an hour, you’ll reach a magnificent viewpoint, granting you access to the glacier. Here, our guides will equip you with crampons, harnesses, and helmets to begin your journey.

Once you’re on the glacier, your perspective transforms: you’ll witness blue ponds, deep crevices, colossal glacier mills, enchanting ice caves, and the unparalleled sensation of being within the glacier’s heart.

Accompanied by our experienced mountain guides, you’ll explore the most unique glacier in the world for approximately three and a half hours. Throughout the hike, our guides will share their knowledge about the ice and its surroundings, enabling you to grasp the glacier’s dimensions and relish the views of nearby mountains, including Cerro Dos Picos, Cerro Pietrobelli, and Cerro Cervantes. Additionally, you’ll have a half-hour break to savor your lunch atop the pristine ice, surrounded by unparalleled beauty.

As you return to the moraine, you’ll embark on another one-hour walk to reach the port, where you’ll take a boat that navigates remarkably close to the southern wall of the Perito Moreno Glacier. This journey allows you to reconnect with “civilization” after experiencing one of the most spectacular ice treks worldwide!

The tour also includes a guided visit to the walkways of Los Glaciares National Park. There, you’ll relish the incredible panoramic landscape of the glacier and stroll along self-guided trails.
