Really cool way to get to see the glacier. There was a limit where we couldn't get as close to the glacier in our kayaks as it looks like you can in some of the photos (but this may have just been the time of year we were there) but it was a nice and serene experience since there aren't a lot of other people on the water and you get to see the glacier from new angles. I would definitely recommend this!

WHY did I give three stars even though the actual experience itself was great? They DON'T tell you that 1) the previously proposed 8:30 pickup would be 10:30 and that actually involves an hr picking up clients NOT kayaking but instead doing the Perrito Moreno boat trip. 2) that you would be HIKING for almost 2 hrs BEFORE the kayaking actually begins. The blue trail is absolutely gorgeous and super easy. WEARING HIKING BOOTS just in case. 3) Eventually, you will be picked up at 3pm by that same shuttle service to be dropped off to START your kayak experience where you will join 13 other kayak guests who oddly enough came in a bus all together. These people did NOT hike. SO BE PREPARED. No idea why we did and the others didn't. I've been kayaking for 15 years: ocean, lakes, rivers, whitewater. 90% had little to no experience but they did fine. One couple tipped over but they were acting stupid and never followed the guide's rules. Don't be stupid.

The best excursion in Calafate! The equipment is very thermal and the experience brutal. The guides are very friendly and take pictures with gopro. 100% recommendable.
