Full Day Tour to the Perito Moreno Glacier

See Perito Moreno Glacier on a guided tour that explores one of Patagonia’s most spectacular glaciers from all angles. With transportation to and from Los Glaciares National Park included, the guided tour encompasses a hike to the best viewpoints and a sail beneath the towering icebergs on a boat cruise.

What to Expect

Your tour begins with morning pickup from your central El Calafate hotel. Set out on a scenic bus journey to Los Glaciares National Park, with guided commentary pointing out highlights of the Patagonian landscape.

On arrival, follow your guide along the park’s trails and take in the national park’s dramatic topography, including glacial streams, jagged peaks, and white walls of ice. At the first viewpoint, you see Perito Moreno’s 200-foot (60-meter) cliffs of ice, with icebergs bobbing below. The glacier changes constantly, so you might hear it creaking and cracking, or see slabs breaking off into the water.

Next, set sail across Lago Argentina on a 1-hour boat cruise, which offers a different perspective of the glacier, allowing you to take in its looming size. After a cruise around the glacier lagoons and floating icebergs, return to the mainland and your bus.

Your tour ends with drop-off at your El Calafate hotel.

Excellent tour!

This tour was just what we were looking for! We hit all the interesting spots on the way to Perito Moreno, and there was plenty of time to walk around on the balconies looking over the glacier. The tour guide, Nadia, was not only helpful,...More

The National park is awesome with a number of work ways. We took the yellow and green which was to the right to admire the view of the north face of the Perito Moreno Glacier. Some people don't bother but I recommend it as you...More

Yes, you get to walk on the walkways overlooking the glacier. The walkways are built like terraces and also wheelchair accessible i.e. the level is easy, and the views are spectacular.

Hi! There is no age limit unless you take the tour to walk on the glacier. Even then, I think it is 60 or 65.
