What You Can Expect

Full Day Tour to the Perito Moreno Glacier

Full Day Tour to the Perito Moreno Glacier

Perito Moreno Glacier has become a favorite Patagonian destination thanks to its impressive expanse, accessibility and continuous movement. Your icy adventure begins with pickup at your El Calafate hotel and a scenic drive to Los Glaciares National Park, so named for the abundance of glaciers found here, including Upsalla, Onelli and Spegazzini. 

Let your guide handle the driving while you soak up the splendor of Lago Argentino framed by majestic peaks and icy islands. Stretch your legs and take an easy hike along park pathways for diverse views of Perito Moreno’s 200-foot-(60-meter)-high, blue-tinged walls. Watch closely to see giant slabs of ice detach from the glacier and slide into the surrounding lagoon. Loud cracking noises are sure to alert you to any movement!

For another perspective, enjoy a 1-hour cruise through the lagoon in front of Perito Moreno. Sail along the massive glacier wall and in between floating icebergs for an awe-inspiring watery perspective on this natural wonder.

After exploring the park, relax on the return drive to El Calafate, where your 9-hour tour concludes in the early evening.

Nadia was an amazing tour guide, so informative and lovely - she made the day very special and really took the time to speak to all in the group, nothing was too much and at the end of the tour she gave us some chocolates and local liquor. I would definitely recommend this trip, really enjoyed it and learnt so much!

Such a great tour! Plenty of time to appreciate the glacier - one of the most spectacular scene ever seen on my travels. Excellent driver-guide team, even providing a shot of calafate liqueur! Make sure you bring Argentinian pesos not USD for entrance to park Viator says differently.

I was picked up on the dot at the time Id been given in the morning. The bus journey from El Calafate to the glacier was pretty quick, and our guide was very informative, in both English and Spanish. Both the boat and walkway sections of the visit offered amazing views of the glacier, and provided excellent photo opportunities.

The trip to Perito Moreno was a fantastic day. Our guide spoke excellent English and helped us to make the most of the bus ride, the boat trip on the lake and the walkways along the face of the glacier. It was definitely worth the cost.

It was a great tour. The boat was comfortable and the crew were knowledgeable and friendly. They spent a lot of time at the major spots and it was a perfect time.
