What to expect
  • Skip the hassle of renting a car and simply step aboard a comfortable coach outside your El Calafate hotel for the ride. Snap photos, enjoy the scenery, and listen to informative commentary about the UNESCO-listed Los Glaciares National Park before you arrive. Make several stops at scenic lookouts you might otherwise miss if you were focused on directions and navigation.  Once you arrive, walk on the glacier's wooden walkways and take directions from your guide to some of the nearby hiking trails. Your guide also points out parts of the glacier prone to calving: chunks of ice rupturing off the face of the glacier and cascading into Lago Argentino. Opt for a boat tour from Bajo Las Sombras, which sails between floating ice chunks of every size and crosses the Rico Arm of Argentino Lake.  Drop-off back in Calafate makes for a door-to-door, stress-free experience.

Drive and walk to the Perito Moreno glacier,
Feb 2020
1069/5000
We drive to the Perito Moreno glacier, one of the few glaciers in the world that is still growing (about two meters per day). Here too the parking lot is completely full, which is not illogical because Perito Moreno is the top attraction in El Calafate. The hike to the Perito Moreno glacier follows a beautifully landscaped route with several steps.

The first viewpoint of the Perito Moreno is probably also the best point to see breaking pieces of ice fall into the lake. Avid hikers can take even longer routes from here, but we opt to experience 'le moment suprême' here. And we don't have to wait long at all to see a first ice block crumble off the Perito Moreno and fall down. After about 10 minutes, a second block falls and eventually what everyone is waiting for happens because a huge ice wall of 70 meters high tears off, which ends up in the water with a huge bang. Unbelievably, this is a textbook example of 'being in the right place at the right time'!

Stunning view of the Perito Moreno Glacier!
Feb 2020
My husband and I went on this day tour to the Perito Moreno Glacier on Feb 24 2020. It was a wonderful experience that we never forget! We got pickup at our hotel in El Calafate, and after an hour drive, we arrived at this small port where our boat is waiting. We were taken to the front of the Glacier, with a fantastic view of it! The captain drove the boat back and forth many times so that we can have plenty of time taking photos from different angles. It was cloudy that day but later the sun broke out from the clouds. We were fortunate to have the sunshine for a while. My husband and I were thrilled! We then went to the small hill close to the Glacier and hiked different trails -- all of the trails were built by boardwalk, very easy to walk on. I would recommend this tour to anyone especially families with children as well as elderly. This is the easiest part of the Patagonia for elderly.

Nice Day Trip
Feb 2020
The tour picked us up from our hotel. As we rode to the park, we stopped at one point to take photos near the lake. The guide explained how the boundaries between Chili and Argentina were formed. She was knowledgeable and fluent in several languages. We stopped at the entrance of the park to pay the admission and then drove up to the parking lot for the catwalks. We had about 2 hours to wander along the catwalks and get back to the bus. We ate lunch in the cafeteria on our own and then took the bus to the boat dock. My only criticism is that there was a long span of time between the catwalks and the boat. It would have been nicer to have more time at the catwalks and just get on the boat. We had to wait a while in the boat parking lot and then again as the boat boarded and got ready to get underway. The scenery was amazing!

Magnificent glacier!
Mar 2020 • Couples
Efficient informative trip with a very knowledgable friendly and funny guide. Plenty of time to explore all the paths to view the glacier. We bought our own lunch but there is a restaurant there and gift shop. The boat trip was better than expected given the number of people on board. Tip: take a seat near the exit initially then you can get the best spot on deck when they allow you to leave your seats! Highly recommended tour of this spectacular glacier

Feb 2020 • Solo
This is a stunning trip from El Calafate....a leisurely one hour trip through fantastic scenery & six ecosystems (you’ll struggle to do that anywhere else in the world in an hour !)....then you reach the awesome spectacle of Perito
Moreno Glacier which will take your breath away...two and a half hours to yourself to admire its beauty before heading down to catch the boat for an even closer look from lake level.
Well guided with interesting information and a few Condors thrown in for good measure ....do it !!

Walkways to enjoy the glacier
Excellent full day trip to Perito Merino glacier. Boat trip gives the opportunity to see the glacier close from the water but the walkways are an excellent facility, providing close views too and are a much more peaceful aspect. The guide was extremely knowledgeable about glaciers and also local flora and fauna which added even more interesting information to the day.
Taking a packed lunch is advisable as there appeared to be little opportunity on our schedule to purchase and enjoy food during the day. The guide stopped on our trip for lunch at 2 30 on the walkways to appreciate the scenery. This I think alters depending on when the boat ride happens... 1130 on our day trip.

Glacier view from land and lake
Jan 2020 • Solo
Very well executed half day tour of Perito Moreno Glacier from Calafate. Tour operator, Austral Sur, was knowledgeable about the environmental conditions related to the glacier and the history of its discovery. It is visible from various angles due to the walkways, some of which are convenient for people with limited mobility. The boat tour gives an up close view of the glacier face, including some small calving of the face into the lake. Highly recommended tour if you only have a half day.
