Full description

Discover Patagonia on this trek in Los Glaciares National Park. Explore the park on foot, and trek on glaciers with crampons. Learn about the flora and fauna from your guide along the way, and sail in front of a glacier on Argentino Lake.

This unmissable experience begins at the “Bajo de las Sombras” Port, within Los Glaciares National Park. Take a boat to cross the Brazo Rico, to the west coast. After crossing, take a rest stop and meet your guides who will brief you on the activity. Strap on your crampons and trek along the glacier, following along with your licensed guides. See unique ice formations and learn about glacier ruptures and the natural life of the region. Return to the refuge through the Magellan forest where you can enjoy your lunch (not included) with a view of the Perito Moreno Glacier. Return through the Brazo Rico of the Argentino Lake, sailing in front of the glacier.

You can also enjoy the view of the Perito Moreno from the catwalks: another way to see and appreciate its immensity.

This was such an amazing and unique experience!! Don’t miss out on this! Our tour guide Soledad (sole) and driver Diego were friendly and helpful to all the guests. Dole made sure to ask everyone what their future plans were on their trip and gave recommendations. Carlos led our tour on the glacier, and he was amazing!! He is so knowledgeable and ensured we were safe and saw the beautiful sites. Highly recommend this tour!

This was the stand out tour of our holiday. Brilliant guides, plenty of information shared, and very well organised. We felt like the tours gave us enough time to enjoy each element, perhaps a little longer cruising in front of the glacier would have been good. Watch out on pricing - if you have time to look into booking tours locally direct with the operator rather than on the app, you may find you save quite a lot of money.

my partner and i booked this tour a few months in advance and were looking forward to it!! the tour was well organised and our questions were answered within reasonable timeframes. we were picked up from our hotel and dropped off exactly as planned. the actual walking on the glacier exceeded our expectations. we strongly recommend it to someone who wants to see the ice up close.
