alternative perito moreno tour

Visit the Perito Moreno Glacier!

An activity for those who, in addition to sailing in front of the Perito Moreno Glacier, dream of getting closer to the glacial ice.

Alternative Perito Moreno Tour

We depart from El Calafate, early in the morning and without rushing along Route 15, the historic route of the ranches.

Along the way we will cross the fields of one of the most emblematic ranches in Patagonia, Estancia Anita.

We will continue advancing in the steppe to reach the Rio Mitre, an authentic Patagonian inn with impressive views of the Valle del Brazo Sur and the Cordillera.

We continue advancing until we reach the entrance to the National Park.

A few kilometers before reaching the Perito Moreno Glacier, we will begin a walk of about 45′ along a path “off the conventional circuits” through an enchanted and quiet forest that will perhaps allow us to find woodpeckers, astral parrots, among others, until we reach a solitary beach with views of the South Wall of the Glacier.

We will walk to the Puerto Bajo La Sombra, where those who want can add the 1-hour Nautical Safari Navigation, and then continue on the way to the walkway sector.

Arriving at the walkways, we have approximately 3 hours to explore, enjoy and discover the glacier with its sounds and colors, and wait for a calving if we are lucky.

At approximately 3:00 p.m. we begin the return using Route 11, the conventional paved road.
