Other reviews will tell you about the tour. The poor rating is based on business practice. I was quoted a discount for youth on the day prior, but on the day of the trip they denied the discount was ever offered. Later the sales person who quoted the discount admitted in front of manager that she had told me of... More

We did the Viedma gletscher trek with this company. The trek itself was ok, nice boat, friendly and knowledgeable guides and a nice cold drink on the end of the trek. However, we thought our group was too big and, mostly, to varied. While the brochure said one had to be in 'good physical condition' to do the trek, most... More

The most spectacular sight I ever saw in my life. A massive wall of blue ice out of the lake! The Glacier Mini trek didn't feel mini at all. We saw and experienced so much. The guides were super sweet, patient & kind. They made us coffee on the way to and from the peer. They let us stop &... More

Don't get me wrong. The glaciar is beautiful. It's worth it. But getting there is most of the trip. Especially if you're coming from El Calafate- it's two hours each way, which is fine, but not if you're thinking you're going to spend the whole day on the ice. Not at all. And this is not a physically demanding trip.... More

Thanks a lot for your comment. Is a fact that in Patagonia, distances are really huge and a 2 hours ride is a short one!!! We are glad you enjoyed the Glacier, the Viedma is fantastic!, and so is the lake. The trip from/to El Calafate is part of the Patagonian steppe. Regards More

We were interested in the Patagonia adventure tour -- Viedma ice trekking. When I asked them to check availability, they said yes it was available. After I emailed them all passenger information, including passport number, DOB, name, etc, they told me the tour was reserved for us and required my credit card to pay upfront. On the next day, they... More

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 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
