Visit the beautiful Perito Moreno Glacier at Los Glaciares National Park. This massive glacier is approximately three kilometers wide and twenty stories high. Take a boat ride over Argentina's Lago Argentino, keeping an eye out for icebergs. After landing on a small beach, you stroll through beech woodland to the icepack of the glacier, where you can walk with crampons (this Glacier trek has a minimum age of 10 and a maximum age of 65.) Total walking/exploration time is about 1.5 hoursLunch atop the glacier's lateral moraine, where you can admire the glacier's anatomy and listen to the glacier's thunderous concerto of groaning and ice-breaking into the lake below.

Alternative trips are available for children under the age of ten and elders.

Day 1: Perito Moreno Glacier Trekking

  • 1 Lunch
Today you drive into Parque Nacional Los Glaciares for views of the stunning Perito Moreno Glacier. This huge advancing glacier is more than 3 miles wide at its front and over 20 stories high. Take a boat across Lago Argentino and pass the massive front wall of blue ice, all the while watching for icebergs. After landing on a small beach you start hiking through the beech forest to the icepack of the glacier and have the opportunity to walk on the glacier with crampons (this Glacier trek has a minimum age of 10 and a maximum age of 65. Alternate excursions are available for those under 10 or over 65 years of age). Eat your lunch sitting on the lateral moraine of the glacier, where you can absorb the magnificence of the glacier's anatomy and listen to its thunderous concerto of groaning and cracking ice dropping into the lake below.

The trip was terrific with great planning on your part. Most of the adventures were not mainstream and somewhat off the beaten path which made it especially enjoyable!! We felt taken care of and you all were readily available to respond to questions and issues. I would highly recommend your company and friends have already expressed interest based on our pictures and excitement.
