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. Embark on a scenic cruise on Rico Lake, sailing past the gigantic Perito Moreno Glacier, before admiring 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.

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.

The memorable 1-hour cruise shows you the famous Perito Moreno Glacier from a different perspective as you approach the ice mass by water. The glacier, 19 miles (30 km) long, was named after local explorer Francisco Moreno, one of Patagonia’s most famous researchers. Unlike most of the region's glaciers, Perito Moreno is one of the few that has expanded in the last few years.

The landscape, the mountains, the glacier, the lakes - They are impressive, breath taking, pure and beautiful. The organized excursion that was Patagonia Dreams was way to touristy for me. Screaming children and loud needy tourists are not my cup of tea. I decided to pay a driver to take me to the Glacier as well as El Chalten (I cancelled a scheduled excursion with Patagonia Dreams for El Chalten) Thank goodness. There was a serene peace to everything without the needy and the loud. For those with large families, young and old, these excursions are a good thing. But if you are adventurous and independent, organize it yourself.

Fantastic trip with an excellent and knowledgeable guide. Views were amazing - colour of the glacier has to be seen to be believed. Unfortunate that the cruise was cancelled, but you can’t account for weather.
