“boat trip”(127 reviews)
A trip to this imposing glacier gives you a chance to walk on the ice wearing cleats and to see and hear a truly astounding spectacle: blocks of ice rupturing and floating away as icebergs.

We took the full day bus trip from El Calafate to the glacier and added the one hour boat cruise. Provider was Patagonia Dreams. Everything about the trip was excellent and the cost was very reasonable. Glacier is a must see in the area.

Glaciar Perito Moreno, the 250 km2 (97 sq mi), 30 km (19 mi) in length ice formation. In a nutshell, miles and miles of beautiful ice as long as visible by the naked eyes. Lookout for the glacier cracking, falling and that majestic sound of it.

Incredible place, really worth visiting. It’s a good distance from El Calafate and you have to pay to go in the national park but worth it. We did an ice trek on the glacier which was one of the favourite things about my holiday. Worth...More

I did the mini trek and loved it, but I agree both will be incredible experiences and ultimately it comes down to personal preference!
