It’s said that a visit to the Parque Nacional Los Glaciares is a “must” in a life time.
There is no doubt that the Perito Moreno Glacier is the most beautiful of Los Glaciares National Park.
It originates at the Continental Ice field and descends through colossal mountains, to penetrate into waters of Argentino Lake.
This unique landscape is framed by the greenest of forests, and the most colorful flowers.
Our exclusive glacier excursion will allow you to devote all the time you want to explore this incredible place. We leave El Calafate and after an 80km drive we arrive at the eastern side of Magallanes Peninsula where there are the footbridges (viewpoints). We will walk along the tracks and will make stops to take photographs. From this point we will clearly see ice blocks of differents sizes continually detaching from the glacier and falling into the water, causing a tremendous sound and amazing waves, which makes this view and unforgettable sight.
This excursion takes you on a cruise across Lake Rico, passing beside icebergs which have calved off the front of the Perito Moreno glacier. Reaching the Icebergs Channel, the boat will stop at a safe distance from the glacier, continuing to sail down all its front, allowing a spectacular view of the high wall of ice.
The boat departs from “Bajo de las Sombras” port, about 6 km before the glacier Balconies.
The excursion lasts approximately one hour and provides a totally different perspective of the the glacier, with almost constant falling of ice from its front. This is a unique opportunity for photographers and nature lovers alike.
We have daily departures, from 10:00 to 15:00 hs approximately. Check with our office for winter departures.
