DAY 1: PERITO MORENO GLACIER AND LOS GLACIARES NATIONAL PARK (OPTIONAL SAFARI NAUTICO NAVIGATION)
We begin our Perito Moreno Glacier tour by picking you up directly from your hotel in the morning. Accompanied by our professional guide, we’ll then head over to Los Glaciares national park. Travelling along Ruta 11, we’ll get some fantastic views as we drive along the edge of Argentino lake towards Brazo Rico.
When we get to the park, we’ll head along to the Curva de los Suspiros, where we’ll be able to get off the bus and see the spectacular Perito Moreno Glacier for the first time. Further on, we’ll make another stop in Muelle Bajo las Sombras where you’ll have the chance to hop on a boat to get a bit closer to the southern wall of the glacier (not included). We’ll head on to the footbridges at the front wall, from where we can get even more incredible views of Perito Moreno. The viewpoints, all at different heights, give you the perfect opportunity to see all the best sides of the glacier. You’ll then have some free time to watch the ice landslides, and even grab some lunch in one of the nearby restaurants (not included).
We’ll bring our spectacular tour to a close in the afternoon, when we’ll head back to El Calafate and drop you back at your hotel for the evening.
