Moreno and El Chalten in one day?

We are staying in El Calafate this November. We have this crazy idea of maximizing our time by taking a day trip to Perito Moreno glacier (8 - 5:00), then catching the 6:00 p.m. bus to El Chalten that night. Can we get away with doing both? Or is this way too ambitous?

Michelle, it can be done...at Calafate the highlight is the Moreno Glacier, with the ice minitrek...

A great suggestion is to get there at dawn by yourself, rent a car for a day...no crowds at all and its a real good experience...at 9.00 am is the first minitrek tour, that finishes about 2.00 pm...and then catch the bus to Chalten...in Chalten, the full day Cerro Torre trek is a must.

In this case you will need 2 nights minimum at Chalten
