Absolutely amazing! One of a kind experience, very easy to do. Gives you an opportunity to see the glaciers in few different ways!
Perito Merino glacier is a must see and if you want a very easy introduction to crampon walking on ice with good guides and much good humour and a whisky on the ice to finish this is the tour for you. We had a fun day with an extremely comfortable bus to get us there and back. The balcony walk to get the overview of the glacier and watch it crack and split if you're lucky was a lovely way to finish this trip too. Not too far from El Calafate. Highly efficient tour and great guide we hope Julio will come and visit us on his way to the glaciers in the south of New Zealand sometime
Spectacular glacier seen through a well-organized tour featuring trekking on the glacier, seeing the massive wall of ice from a boat, and hiking along the cliffs opposite the glacier in the National Park. Great guides, informative, fun and orchestrated like clockwork -- a very professional operation
A great tour! A must do if you are ever in Calafete. This was hands down the highlight of our trip to Argentina.
The Perito Moreno Glacier is like the Grand Canyon- photos don't do it justice. You have to experience it in person to fathom the size and beauty of it. Our guides were multilingual, really friendly, and highly expert. 1.5 hours walking the glacier was just right. At the end of the walk we were surprised with free whisky and alfajores, which was a really nice treat.
It is a good hike. Never been on a glacier so this was quite an experience for me.
Unforgetable experience and especially our complements to Walter the tourguide

Absolutely spend the money and do this tour rather than just the boat ride! Trekking on the glacier was an amazing experience that you should NOT miss. The bus picked us up on time and we took 1.5 hrs to get to the glaciers. Entrance fee to the glacier is not included 260 pesos. We then took a boat to the glacier and got amazing pictures. Boat ride was about 20mins. Next we got fitted with crampons and off we went! Julio our guide gave us an intro to the glacier before we headed up. He gave history on the glaciers in the region and how to walk with crampons correctly up the glacier and down. He also gave safety instructions. At no time did I feel unsafe. We were on the ice 1.5-2hrs? We took lots of pics. You don't need any ice experience. If you can walk up a gentle hill you can do this! We took several breaks as we went up and down. After the ice trek, we had lunch, headed back to the boat and spent an hour at the balconies viewing the glacier.
Highly recommend this excursion if you're visiting El Cafate and the Perito Moreno glacier. The hike on the glacier is of low to moderate difficulty. Once you don the crampons and climb the icy mountain, you are rewarded with amazing sights including icy blue crevices and sinkholes, ice towers, and more.
