Your adventure begins with a convenient pickup from the designated meeting point in El Calafate. Sit back in our comfy buses, where you’ll receive fascinating insights about the area, the Glacier, and the upcoming tour, all delivered via user-friendly audio guides available in Spanish, English, and Portuguese.

Upon reaching the ‘Bajo las Sombras’ port (located at Ruta 11, km 70.9), you’ll step aboard a ship for a scenic 20-minute cruise across Lago Rico. This journey positions you right in front of the southern wall of the awe-inspiring Perito Moreno Glacier.

After disembarking and passing by the shelter, our expert mountain guides will form small groups, with a maximum of 20 participants in each. Then, embark on a brief 20-minute walk, complete with an engaging talk about glaciology as you stroll along the lakeside, approaching the Glacier. Once on the ice, our guides will outfit you with crampons and provide clear instructions on safe ice walking. During the approximately 1.5-hour Glacier walk, you’ll marvel at a diverse array of ice formations, including cracks, seracs, glacier mills, and picturesque small ponds.

The trekking experience is of moderate difficulty. The ice surface may be uneven, but it’s firm and secure. You’ll also learn about the unique phenomenon specific to the Perito Moreno Glacier, which can eventually lead to its mesmerizing rupture. Following the trek, enjoy a leisurely walk through the lush Magellanic forest back to the shelter. As part of the tour, you’ll also have the opportunity to explore the well-marked pathways of Los Glaciares National Park, just 7 km from the port. Here, relish breathtaking panoramic views of the Glacier and take a stroll along some easy-to-navigate self-guided trails.
