At Howlanders we highly recommend this "Minitrekking Perito Moreno" so you will experience the majesty of the glacier in 3 different ways: ‍♂️❄ Ice hiking using crampons, crossing safe and sturdy paths for 1,5 hours (a little surprise awaits you at the end of the trekking ). Navigating the lake while getting amazed about the southern wall of the Perito Moreno Glacier views. Walking the footbridges located right in front of the Perito Moreno Glacier wall, and listening to the ice breaking, is a breathtaking experience. The most complete experience to discover Perito Moreno glacier with Howlanders! You can choose to include the pick-up from El Calafate or get to Los Glaciares park on your own.

The day before the tour starts, the guide will contact you on behalf of our agency: Howlanders, to indicate your pick-up time at your accommodation in El Calafate, as the tour has different departure times during the morning. Once together, you will head to the port ‘Bajo Las Sombras’, which is a few kilometers from the glacier viewpoint. In case you do not select the option that includes the transfer, you will meet the group directly at Puerto Bajo las Sombras, inside Los Glaciares National Park. There, we will take a boat and sail in front of the awe-inspiring south wall of the Perito Moreno Glacier. After disembarking, the guides will organize us into groups and we will walk for a few minutes until we reach the Glacier. The guide will then help us put on the crampons, thus starting the incredible trek through the ice of the most impressive glacier in the world.
