Perito Moreno Glacier Tour (Full Day from Puerto Natales)
PERITO MORENO GLACIER TOUR
It´s a long way to go , but it’s well worth the effort to see Patagonia´s most impressive glacier , and there are many. And this is one of the world few glaciers that is not receding!. The tour begins with an early morning pick up between 6:30 am to 7:00 am. Then , one hour later you will cross the border into Argentina. After a “brief” stop at customs , you then continue North West thru Argentina´s famed “pampas”. The road trip to El Calafate , the unofficial Capital City of Patagonia Argentina. Last approximately 4 hours , you will have a short stop at the gas station , and then back on board the bus , for the last hour to the glacier. There, you have the options to take a 1 hour boat excursion for an up close and personal experience , or head straight to the look out area for two hours of viewing and photos. You´ll hear the glacier rumbling , and there is a good chance you will see huge icebergs falling appart into the lake.
If you opt for the boat option , you still get a full hour in front of this magnificent natural wonder before heading back . You also have the option to get off the bus and stay in El Calafate , if you are going to continue traveling from there to other cities in Argentina , or maybe just enough time to grab some of it´s famous chocolate or eat the too famous Argentine ’steak before heading back to Puerto Natales. You arrive back at your Hostel around 9 pm or you can stay in Calafate and continue your trip from there.
- The tour does not include food , boat ticket , not the park´s entrance fee.
