We were a group of 9 adults and we all loved the glacier trekking tour (private van and guide). It takes about 1 1/2 hours to get there by bus. We were first taken to the balconies (lots of stairs) where you can admire the glacier from all angles and listen to the cracking of the ice and see the huge chunks of glacier fall into the lake. We had hot chocolates in the cafe and then drove about 5 minutes to the embarcation point to take a boat over to the glacier side (10 minutes by boat). We took our own box lunches and settled down at an outdoor picnic table with the glacier right in front of us. You have to take your own lunch, because there is no food available at this point of the tour. We walked about 10 minutes to the glacier along a path where we put on our crampons and set to trekking on the glacier. It was not difficult and it was exciting to be walking on this huge glacier and see blue ice, little pools of water and all the different formations. The whiskey shots at the end of the tour were an amusing ending of the trek. Despite being in the middle of summer, it was very cold and windy so go prepared with gloves, winter jacket, layers. Yes, I recommend this tour. It was fantastico, sin duda (without a doubt). For us, it was the highlight of our trip in Argentina.
