    This is the most complete tour to visit the Perito Moreno glacier as it includes the trekking on the ice, a short sailing by the south wall of the glacier and a tour in the runways (if you book it with transfer from your hotel included).

    If you book the tour with transfer, it begins when we pick you up at your hotel in El Calafate and start a 75km ride to the Perito Moreno Glacier located in Los Glaciares National Park. At the Bajo las Sombras port, located 5 km before reaching the glacier, you embark to cross the "Rico" Lake and descend on the southwestern coast after 20 minutes sailing. The tour guides lead you to a shelter in the forest where they organize groups up to 20 people. Then, the trekking begins heading towards the glacier where, after reaching the ice, you need to put on iron crampons to walk on this surface. The tour on the glacier is about an hour and a half, in which cracks, seracs, sinks and small lakes can be appreciated. The hike is moderate and you will walk on an irregular ice surface, but firm and safe.

    The return to the port is made with an approach to the walls of the glacier where you can enjoy a Scotch glass with ice from the Perito Moreno glacier.

    Later, you return to Bajo las Sombras port and you are taken to visit the runways located in front of the glacier, where you can have a different view of the landscape. Finally, you begin the journey back to the city of El Calafate after visiting and walking on one of the most famous and unique glacier of its kind in the world.

    No previous experience is required and anyone who meets the age limits, the requirements listed on the website and has a normal physical condition can make the tour.
