Minitrekking Perito Moreno 2.0

The Minitrekking 2.0 is an excursion with more physical demand than the classic Minitrekking as it gets closer to the center of the Perito Moreno Glacier. You will visit this glacier from El Calafate doing ice trekking, a walk along the coast of the lake in front of the glacier and through the forest arriving closer to its center, a boat tour along the southern wall of the glacier and the visit to the balconies. You can see cracks, sinkholes, lagoons and deep blue ice formations. During the Minitrekking 2.0, you will enjoy a glass of whiskey with ice from the Perito Moreno Glacier while you explore it more in depth than in the classic excursion and with a higher level of demand.

The Minitrekking Perito Moreno in its 2.0 version is one of the most complete excursions offered to visit the Perito Moreno Glacier from El Calafate as it includes ice trekking, a boat tour in front of the southern wall of the glacier and the visit to the balconies, always accompanied by a guide. It is an intermediate excursion in terms of difficulty between the classic Minitrekking and the Big Ice since you will get closer to the center of the glacier but without taking so many hours ice trekking.

If you book the tour with transfer from El Calafate, we will pick you up at your hotel to undertake the 78 km journey until reaching the Perito Moreno Glacier within Los Glaciares National Park. If you do not include the transfer, you must get to Port Bajo de las Sombras, located 7 km before arriving at the glacier, where you will embark to cross the Brazo Rico of Lake Argentino in a 20 minutes boat tour.

Once you cross the Rico Arm of the lake, you will be given crampons to walk on the ice, which you must carry in a backpack. From here begins a walk along the shore of the lake, with the view of the Perito Moreno in front and with the possibility of seeing landslides. You will trek through the forest next to the glacier until you reach a waterfall where you will put on the crampons necessary to walk on the ice and that will allow you not to slip. After warm-up movements, Minitrekking 2.0 begins in which you will be able to see cracks, seracs, sinkholes and small lagoons. The walk is of moderate/high difficulty and is done on an irregular, but firm and safe ice surface. Once the ice trekking is over, you will return to the port trekking along the same path in the forest. Then, you will board again, approaching the southern wall of the glacier while a glass of whiskey with ice from the Perito Moreno Glacier is offered.

Upon arriving at Port Bajo de las Sombras, you will be transported to the balconies located in the front of the glacier, from where you can have a different perspective of the landscape while you visit the famous balconies of the Perito Moreno.

Finally, we begin the journey back to the city of El Calafate after having visited and walked on one of the most famous and unique glaciers in the world.
