We booked a different tour with the company in El Calafate, the people selling the tours were really helpfull and informative. We thus decided to do the Viedma ice trekking as well, because they said the walk on the ice was longer and nicer then the Perito Moreno walk. The girl at the office in El Chalten on the other...

We booked a kayaking tour though Viva Patagonia after some issues with another third-party tour agency in town. We found the office staff to be very helpful flu and friendly and even organised to do another tour with them on the following day. Unfortunately the kayaking tour was cancelled last-minute due to boat problems and we had a very hard... More

We did both the ice trek and an all day guided mountain trek. In both experiences Andreas was our guide. He clearly loves to share his extensive knowledge the geology, flora, fauna, birds, and history of the area. He also had insites related to the climbing culture and the town of Calafate which were most interesting. In addition, the other... More

Four of us took the Viedma Pro (glacier ice trekking and climbing) tour and we can simply said that Patagonia Aventura was a very professional group of people making this a memorable trip for us. Nacho and his team gave us a lot of time for ice climbing from easy to more difficult wall. They did not rush anyone and... More

I did the glacier trekking tour on 26th of December and I loved the experience! The only bad thing is that these guys do not heat the bus nor the boat... After walking almost 3hrs on the glacier I thought to myself no way they do the same on the way back.. But sadly all the way to Chalten we... More

Due to the fact that they have a monopoly on the services towards the glacier you have no other choice. The ViedmaPro tour especially the staff for ice climbing was very excellent. Great day experience. Good size of group. Due to the only provider, we had to wait until slots were free. So book in advance since there is no... More

I joined this (very pricy!!) tour departing from El Calafate in a 1-day trip. I'v read negative opinions about this agency but since it is the only one that organize trekking on the ice on the Viedma...I had no choice, so I booked with them. What a mistake! They put you in a big group of people, with members of... More

I was very scared and I could not pciture myself trekking the glacier, but as many of people said before the guides from Patagonia Adventure are amazing, very helpful and they make sure that you trek only in safe areas of the glacier, every day the trail can be different as the glacier moves, you will see rainbow and will...

Patagonia Aventura provided a very enjoyable experience, particularly once we disembarked from the boat and began the mini ice-trek. The group was split up into smaller groups both for more manageable size and based on language, and our English-speaking group numbered around 15, with three guides. Particularly since my husband is no longer "age-eligible" for the ice trek on Perito... More
