Description

Set off to Perito Moreno, one of Patagonia's most imposing and most visited glaciers, located in the UNESCO-listed Los Glaciares National Park. Admire the gigantic ice formation from different perspectives during the brisk hike along the surrounding catwalks.

After convenient pickup at your hotel, make your way to the stunning 97-square mile (250-sq km) ice formation located near the Chilean border. The 19-mile (30-km) long glacier was named after local explorer Francisco Moreno, one of Patagonia's most famous researchers. Unlike most of the region's icebergs, Perito Moreno is one of the very few that has been growing in recent years.

Arrive at the visitor center to begin the exciting guided hike on the national park's trails. The walking tour takes you to the glacier's main viewpoints, located on the southern and eastern flanks of the stunning formation. After the 2.5-hour walking tour and some time to explore on your own, savor the view of the main attraction of Los Glaciares National Park and return to El Calafate.

This is an amazing experience. Great time of the year to go ( late August) if you do not like crowds and do not mind the cold weather .. ( 1-5 celsius ) . I did not take the boat ride which I do not regret so I have plenty of time the walk all the paths, take pictures and admire the glacier.

Highly recommended. Tour guide was friendly and informative. The tour minibus picked us up from our hotel and then dropped us off to enjoy the trail at our leisure. Plenty of time to get awesome photos of the glacier.

We signed up for 8:00 am tour to Perito Moreno. By email they said pickup was at 8:45 but our minibus did not arrive until 9:50 am. This delay is unacceptable. The Glacier Tour with boat ride is wonderful! Definitely do it, but based on delay, stay away from Patagonia Dreams tour operator.
