Overview
Get closer to the frozen beauty of the Perito Moreno Glacier on a day trip that gives you access to landscapes that are ordinarily off limits. You’ll escape the crowds on land during a cruise to Brazo Rico before embarking on a trek across the glacier itself and into a Magellanic forest.

    Stop: 8 hours
    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 flora and fauna and about the particular phenomenon that only takes place in the Perito Moreno Glacier and that 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 to walk along some of the self guided trails. The Minitrekking is designed for people who enjoy nature, adventure and who want to live the experience of walking on the ice of the most beautiful Glacier of the world.

Trekking on the glacier is one of the top highlights of our time in Argentina. The staff was prompt, kind, informative, fun. The hike with crampons affixed to boots was fun & beautiful, and far better to be on the glacier than to just look at it (which you also do on this tour).

These guys did a great job starting with the bus to get there. Our family of 4 joined a lot of other people so had a good group of 40 and stopped for 2 hours to walk on the trails viewing the glacier. From there we took a short boat trip and had wonderful men helping put on
