Full description
Start your day with pick up from your hotel and head out on Route 11, bordering Lake Argentino. Travel 80 kilometers from El Calafate to the Moreno Glacier. On the drive out of El Calafate, you can see beautiful Lake Argentino with its Redonda Bay and try to spot its wide variety of birds. Within the first 40 kilometers, you’ll travel through the Patagonian Steppe, then enter the national park. You will arrive at the “Curva de los Suspiros” or “Sigh Curve”, the first panoramic viewpoint of the Perito Moreno Glacier. Enjoy a short stop to take pictures before moving on to Bajo las Sombras Port. You will have the option of taking an additional one-hour boat trip through the southern arm of the Iceberg Channel in order to see different views of the Perito Moreno Glacier Wall. Back at the Port, a system of balconies and footbridges allow you to enjoy walks along different paths and to take in amazing views of the glacier. After some free time for walking and lunch, make your way back to El Calafate.

The trip itself is very worthwhile. By using this company, it makes everything simple and you can relax and not have to worry. The company actually didn't contact us the day before with a pick up time which did cause some confusion in the morning but we managed to get hold of them via the telephone. If you book this we would HIGHLY recommend including the cruise. We still have plenty of time to explore the boardwalk.

The pick up was on time. The staff were professional and very friendly, and gave great commentary and explanations of glaciers. The day was well paced the lunch was fantastic and the time spent at each point of interest was ideal. If you are short on time this must be the one you start with during your stay..

The day before we were on our own at Perito Moreno and now with a guided tour. Both times it was a really incredible experience!! Guadalupe gave us a lot of background knowledge and made the tour really interesting, even though we were there a second time :) A little tip: it's worth going twice, because depending on the sun or without the sun, the glacier shines bluer and the lake appears even bluer !
