This is an ideal tour to visit the Perito Moreno Glacier from El Calafate without physical demands and with long time to explore with peace of mind the glacier balconies, depending on each person's rhythm and always accompanied by a guide.
Our excursion to the glacier departs at 8:00 a.m. from your hotel in El Calafate and allows you to spend the time you want to visit this incredible place, with several stops in viewpoints within the National Park and a visit to the balconies, scenic spot peak.
The 78 km journey from El Calafate to the glacier is a succession of lakes, streams, forests and snowy mountains. At the end of the journey, you arrive at the west end of the Magallanes Peninsula, where you start walking on the balconies, which have a total distance of 5.5 km. They have different levels and allow you to contemplate the glacier from different angles and balconies. You will have about 5 hours to walk throughout the balconies and marvel at the Perito Moreno Glacier from the forehead. Depending on your fitness, you can reach the lowest balcony, which is the nearest to the glacier, or get to the first balcony, easily accessible for anyone.
An elevator is currently operating to facilitate access for people with reduced mobility to the first balcony from which you have a spectacular view.
As an optional service, you can include a complementary one-hour boat tour that takes place in front of the glacier's wall. You can also add a lunchbox or you can have lunch at the restaurant located at the beginning of the balconies.
Once the tour is finished, you will return to El Calafate on the same road taken one way and arrive at your hotel at 6:00 p.m. approximately.
