Day trip to Perito Moreno in Los Glaciares National Park
From $41.65
With transportation included, this full-day tour to Los Glaciares National Park allows you to focus on the views and snapping photos of the scenery. Follow your guide to see the Perito Moreno Glacier from multiple angles on the various walkways and lookout points while listening to engaging commentary on the geology, environment, and wildlife. Take your experience up a notch with an optional 1-hour boat cruise along the glacial wall.
What to Expect
Skip the hassle of renting a car and simply step aboard a comfortable coach outside your El Calafate hotel for the 2-hour ride. Snap photos, enjoy the scenery, and listen to informative commentary about the UNESCO-listed Los Glaciares National Park before you arrive. Make several stops at scenic lookouts you might otherwise miss if you were focused on directions and navigation. 

Once you arrive, walk on the glacier's wooden walkways and take directions from your guide to some of the nearby hiking trails. Your guide will also point out parts of the glacier prone to calving: chunks of ice rupturing off the face of the glacier and cascading into Lago Argentino.

Opt for a 1-hour boat tour from Bajo Las Sombras, which sails between floating ice chunks of every size and crosses the Rico Arm of Argentino Lake. 

Drop-off back in Calafate makes for a door-to-door, stress-free experience.

This is an amazing day trip. After a bus ride of about 1.5 hours from El Calafate through scenic terrain, the first stop was at a viewpoint overlooking the vast glacial icecap of which the Perito Moreno glacier is a small segment. This segment is...More
