Embark on an unforgettable adventure at Perito Moreno glacier with a mini-trekking excursion! Experience the majestic beauty of this unique ecosystem as you walk on the glacier, surrounded by towering ice formations, snowfields, and rivers. Led by experienced guides, this mini-trekking tour offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness the incredible natural wonders of the Perito Moreno glacier up close and personal. Whether you’re an avid trekker or just looking for a new adventure, this mini-trekking experience is not to be missed.


The tour begins with the pick-up from the meeting point agreed in El Calafate. In our comfortable buses, we will give information about the place, the Glacier, and the tour through audio guides available in Spanish, English, and Portuguese.
Once in the “Bajo las Sombras” port (Ruta 11, km 70.9), you board a ship to cross the Lago Rico to arrive at the opposite shore after a 20-minute trip approximately in front of the southern wall of the Perito Moreno Glacier.
When you get ashore, and after passing by the shelter, the mountain guides organize small groups of up to 20 people. Then, a short 20-minute walk begins with a talk about glaciology along the shore of the lake towards the Glacier. Once on the ice, the guides put on each participant a pair of crampons and give them instructions on how they should walk on the ice. In the about 1:30 hour walk on the Glacier, you will be able to appreciate a wide variety of ice formations as well as cracks, seracs, glacier mills, and small ponds.
The trekking difficulty is moderate. The ice surface over which you walk is irregular but firm and safe. You will get information about the particular phenomenon that only occurs in the Perito Moreno Glacier and eventually produces its rupture. After the trekking, a stroll through the exuberant Magellanic forest brings you back to the shelter. The tour includes a guided visit to the walkways of Los Glaciares National Park, 7km from the port. There, you will be able to enjoy the amazing panoramic landscape of the Glacier and walk along some of the self-guided trails.
