Minitrekking

Activity SUITABLE for people between 10 and 65 years old, WITHOUT EXCEPTION. Would you like to enjoy one of the funniest activities in El Calafate? Go for a minitrekking in the Perito Moreno Glacier! Walk on the Perito Moreno Glacier, one of the most famous in the world for 1 hour and a half.

Included

  • 60-minute walk in the Andean Patagonian forest (round trip)
  • 90 minutes above the ice
  • 40 minutes of navigation on the south face of the Perito Moreno Glacier
  • Spanish / English guide
  • Crampons to walk on ice

Not included

  • Entrance to Los Glaciares National Park (payable in Argentine pesos upon arrival at the Park). Do not forget your ID / Passport or Identity Card
  • Food and drinks. Take your own lunch box

What will you do?

This unmissable experience begins at the “Bajo de las sombra” Port, within Los Glaciares National Park. There you take a boat to cross the Brazo Rico, to the west coast. Once we have crossed, the guides will receive us to give us some details of the activity. In the shelter that is there, we can leave some of our belongings, as well as use the bathrooms.
Groups of up to 20 people are formed to take a 20-minute walk to the glacier and, once with the crampons on, the ascent to the ice begins.
The tour lasts approximately 2 hours and you can enjoy the ice formations; learn about the flora, fauna and glaciology of the region; and, especially, on the phenomenon of glacier rupture. Then, you return to the refuge through the Magellan forest. In this place you can enjoy your lunch (not included. You must bring your own food / drink) with a view of the Perito Moreno Glacier. We will undertake the return through the Brazo Rico of the Argentino Lake, sailing in front of the glacier. You can also enjoy the view of the Perito Moreno from the catwalks: another way to see and appreciate its immensity.
Being a moderate walk, on an irregular but firm surface, it can only be done by people between 10 and 65 years old, due to their physical demands. Nor can pregnant women or people with reduced mobility, arthritis, prostheses, knee problems, menisci, overweight, or heart problems.
