Full description

Depart from your hotel in El Calafate at around 10:30 AM and set off for the Perito Moreno Glacier located inside the Los Glaciares National Park. Travel to the west end of the Magallanes Peninsula and enjoy plenty of time to explore this natural ice formation.

Begin your tour of the national park by strolling along a 4-kilometer (2.5-mile) network of boardwalks. Admire the glacier from multiple perspectives as you climb up to different levels and balconies.

Spend 2 hours exploring the runways and use this time to eat a packed lunch or make a stop in at one of the restaurants. Go on an optional 1-hour boat ride in front of the northern wall of the glacier. After the tour, return to El Calafate via the same route and arrive in the evening.

Amazing day! We were picked up from our hotel and the guide gave information in both English and Spanish. The bus stopped along the way to allow us to take pictures and provided the option of a boat trip. This tour was by far the most affordable option we found and really great value for money. Highly recommend

This tour is very good. We first took the boat, and then did the boardwalk, which is much more impressive, as you can see the overall size of the glacier up close. The tour is half the price of other similar tours, but it provided enough time and it is very convenient to go with the tours than do it yourself. But the tour group size is big with a large tour bus. Recommend!

Great value for money. The bus picks up at the hotel but the schedule is not quite what is indicated in the reservation. The guide was wonderful. She is very attentive and explained several curiosities about the formation of glaciers, flora and fauna. Excellent tour. The guide even managed to include customers who were without Cruzeiro at the time.
