The tour begins with the pick-up from the meeting point agreed in El Calafate. In our comfortable buses, a bilingual tourist guide will give you information of the landscape you are about to discover.

It includes a guided visit to the walkways of Los Glaciares National Park. There, you will be able to enjoy the spectacular panoramic landscape of the glacier and walk some of the self-guided trails.

Once in “Bajo de las Sombras” Port, located just 7km from the Glacier, you board a boat to cross the Brazo Rico, and you disembark 20 minutes later on the opposite shore.

Small groups of up to 10 people are organized, and the hike begins from the southern moraine of the glacier in just over an hour you will reach a spectacular viewpoint where you will access on to the ice. There, the mountain guides will explain basic security rules and put the necessary crampons, harnesses and helmets to begin the journey.

Once on the glacier and with the crampons on, the world takes another perspective: blue ponds, deep cracks, huge glacier mills, magic caves and the unique feeling of being in the heart of the glacier.

Always accompanied by our mountain guides, for approximately three hours and a half you will explore the corners of the most special glacier of the world. During the walk, the guides will help you learn more about the ice, its surroundings and you will be able to size the dimension of the glacier and enjoy the view of the nearby mountains, such as Cerro Dos Picos, Cerro Pietrobelli and Cerro Cervantes. In addition, you will have half an hour lunch on the white blanket and be amazed in a place of unique beauty.

Back on the moraine, we will begin another one-hour walk back and embark once again to return to the port, navigating very close to the southern wall of the Perito Moreno Glacier before returning to “civilization” after having enjoyed one of the most spectacular ice trekk in the world!
