This was anenjoyable day but I’m not sure I’d rave about it or that it was worth the price. You drive to the first boat which is a covered boat and take a 40 min journey across a lake. There is then a 20/30min walk...More

We were recommended this experience, GlaciarSur, by a relative. Such a good experience. We were a family of 11 ages 8 to 49, we all loved it, the hiking and sailing, great alternative to avoid masses.

This trip is not cheap but well worth it's money. It avoids the masses, main roads and main times and will thus provid you with a very unique and pleasant perito moreno experience. But the it has more on offer then just the glacier. What...More
