Full description

Depart from your hotel in El Calafate at around 10:30 AM and set off for the Perito Moreno Glacier located inside the Los Glaciares National Park. Travel to the west end of the Magallanes Peninsula and enjoy plenty of time to explore this natural ice formation.

Begin your tour of the national park by strolling along a 4-kilometer (2.5-mile) network of boardwalks. Admire the glacier from multiple perspectives as you climb up to different levels and balconies.

Spend 2 hours exploring the runways and use this time to eat a packed lunch or make a stop in at one of the restaurants. Go on an optional 1-hour boat ride in front of the northern wall of the glacier. After the tour, return to El Calafate via the same route and arrive in the evening.

Our tour guide Lucrecia was super nice. She told us interesting facts about the national park and the glacier. We had some confusion about our pick-up point, but we ended up going to their office in time. The bus ride was super comfy. They even dropped us off at our hotel at the end. We had also booked the boat trip to the glacier which was a breathtaking experience! Totally worth the money. Plus, you get enough time on your own to walk the three paths.

More of a transfer with information than a guided tour. Picking up and dropping off worked perfectly and on time, the guide was very nice and told a lot of informative things. We didn't do the boat tour because you can get even closer to the glaciers on foot and so we didn't think it was necessary. While part of the group went boating, we were already sent out on the hiking trails. These are very well signposted, great vantage points and very pleasant to walk on because they are fixed. The guide wasn't with us during this time and so we had about 4 hours of free time, whereby 2-3 hours would still be absolutely sufficient to walk all the ways and eat in peace. All in all as described by the provider, but not outstanding. Good value for money.

Thanks for the great tour! The bus arrived at the hotel on time, the company manager was in touch when I wrote to them with questions) The guide Sabrina is very pleasant, speaks good English. The driver is polite. The bus is comfortable. Everything was well organized, on time, arrived and left on time. Very convenient. I also booked a transfer from the airport through their company. At first I was going to get on my own to the national park (which, as it turned out, was an hour away). Therefore, I am very glad that I chose this tour. They brought it, they took it) conveniently)))) thank you! And of course the glacier is incredible + boating! Wonderful park Recommend Thank you very much for the well-organized tour. Our guide Sabrina was very friendly and knew all the information about the park, glacier, etc. The driver was very polite too. The bus is comfortable, pick up and drop off was on time. The manager of the company was fast answering my questions earlier. the glacier was outstan
