Departing from El Calafate, we will arrive at the entrance of Los Glaciares National Park.

From there, we will board the boat that will take us on the Rico Arm of Lake Argentina to the Glacier. Enjoy fantastic views of Perito Moreno Glacier from up close during this 20 minutes boat ride!

Upon arrival on the opposite shore of the Rico Arm, at the foot of Perito Moreno Glacier, you will be led a small shelter where you will be given crampons (special metal spikes worn on boots for traction) to wear.

Then the adventure really begins with a fascinating 1 hour and a half walk across the glacier.

Admire the fascintating andscape of the glaciers: streams, small lagoons, gullies, cravasses and plenty of ice formations of the most incredible blues. Learn everything about Perito Moreno Glacier, its flora, fauna and the general glaciology of the region.

At the end of the walk, have a glass of whiskey with ice from the glacier. We will return by a road between a forest of lengas and the pier.

You will board the boat to cross the Rico Arm again and will have one hour to explore the footbridges in front of Perito Moreno glacier.

At the end of the tour, you wil be taken back to your hotel in El Calafate.
