ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: El CalafateWe’ll begin our Mini Trekking Perito Moreno Glacier Hike tour by picking you up directly from your hotel in the morning. We’ll then travel around 80km towards the Los Glaciares national park.After about an hour of travelling, we’ll arrive at Bajo de las Sombras port, which sits around 6km away from the glacier viewing points. From here, we’ll hop onto a modern, comfortable boat and sail along Brazo Rico for 20 minutes or so, getting some incredible views of Perito Moreno’s front wall.When we arrive at the other side, we’ll be welcomed by our specialist bilingual guides as we hop off the boat and are led to a small shelter. After checking everyone’s details (you’ll be in a small group of no more than 20), the guides will lead us along the shore towards the edge of the glacier. Once we’re on the ice, the guides will give us each a set of crampons and explain how to use them.Ready to go, we’ll set off on our 2-hour minitrekking circuit. We’ll see some incredible scenery around the glaciers: streams, little lagoons, ravines, crevasses and some gorgeous ice structures. The ice surface is uneven but firm which only adds to the uniqueness of the experience.Throughout the hike, you’ll hear about the nature, animals and glaciology of the area, as well as about the strange phenomenon of Perito Moreno which will cause its eventual fracture.After our hike, we’ll head through the forest to get back to the little shelter, from where we’ll hop back on the boat and sail for another 20 minutes to reach Bajo de las Sombras port.From here, we’ll bring our tour to a close by dropping you back at your hotel for the evening in El Calafate.
