The excursion begins in the town of El Calafate where we will pick you up at your hotel. You will ride about 1.5 hours outside the city to the port in “Bajo de las Sombras”. Upon arriving at the port you will have the chance to board a boat to enjoy about 20 minutes of navigation, enjoying views of the famous Perito Moreno glacier.
After your short boat navigation you’ll disembark, where specialized bilingual mountain guides will be waiting for you. Once on the ice, the guides will help you with your special pair of crampons and explain how to use them. Crampons are special shoes that help to walk on the ice.
The two hour hike that follows will show you the landscape of the glaciers: streams, small lagoons, gullies, crevasses and the hues of the blue ice. As our hike comes to an end we will all cheers to our accomplishment with whisky and ice from the glacier.
After the hike you will return to the original point to enjoy your picnic lunch. After lunch we will cross again the Rico Arm of the Argentina Lake for some additional sailing to see the south face of the glacier. You will be able to observe the glacier and see its massive structures for about an hour. After time for photos and some relaxation you will return to El Calafate.
