I enjoyed very much the navigation to Viedma Glacier. After this we move to El Chalten and the guide told me that the only thing to do there was trekking. I didn't know this and I didn't feel like trekking, so I had to wait hours before getting back to El Calafate, and this has been quite boring. I'd recommend this to a trekking lover friend.

We took a trip to beautiful Viedma Glacier, including a bus/boat ride from El Chalten and back and a hike on the glacier itself. The guides were experienced, responsible, knowledgeable and all had a sense of humor. At the end of the hike the boat approached a huge piece of blue ice that had just calved from the glacier, and was rolling and breaking up in the lake, and we were able to take in and photograph this event which the staff said was rare in its size. My only suggestion for change would be to make less stops on the glacier itself. We spent a little too much time standing on the glacier waiting for everyone to take (lots of) photos in spots which in our mind were similar to one another. We would have preferred to walk more and stand less. But all in all a well-organized, professional and fun trip.

We did this tour on Viedma Glacier after doing the Perito Merino minitrekking. It was top value. Good clean buses, great boat, good gear (crampons) and really good, attentive guides. The wind was howling but they still provided a great walk in the glacier.

We did the Ice Trek tour on Lake Viedma near El Chalten in early December.
The tour commenced at 9am with a cruise on Lake Viedma to the glacier (about 1hr 15 mins).
From there we scrambled over rocks for about 20 mins to a rest point where the guides fitted our crampons for our ice trek. Overall we spent about 1.5 hours trekking on the galcier.
The staff were great. The main tour guide, Laura, spoke excellent english and provded a lot of information. The other support staff were also very helpful and assisted with the more difficult portions of the trek. The instructions on how to use the crampons were succinct and easy to follow. There were plenty of photo opportunities too!

Overall, we think that this was a unique outing and a well run tour.
