Enjoy an unforgettable experience in El Calafate where you will be able to touch the Perito Moreno Glacier with your own hands. Cross Lago Rico by sailboat, and admire panoramic views of the glacier.


  • Touch the Perito Moreno Glacier with your own hands
  • Discover Los Glaciares National Park and its beautiful landscapes.
  • Enjoy the panoramic view from the famous walkways facing the glacier.


The tour begins in the city of El Calafate when the bus departs towards Parque Nacional Los Glaciares. Once you arrive at the “Bajo de las Sombras” port (at only 7 Km from the walkways), we will follow our guide and take a boat to cross Lago Rico and descend on the opposite coast after a 20-minute navigation. Step by step we will walk through the natural terrain, always with a view of the southern side of the glacier just in case there were thunderous ice calvings, and after reaching the ice, you’ll have an unforgettable experience, where you will finally be able to touch the Perito Moreno Glacier itself! At that point, you’ll also enjoy different and intense shades of blue and white colors. Passengers will have enough time to take pictures and afterwards return to the embarking point. You’ll spend an hour-and-a-half walk along a natural surface of sand and stones, with some slopes and stairs. You’ll walk about 1.5 kilometers by the cost of the lake and through a greenwood with a view to the Perito Moreno Glacier. Then, you will embark to enjoy, from the water and only a few meters away, every detail of the marble slope of the glacier. Upon arriving to the port, you’ll take the bus towards the walkways where you’ll have two hours to enjoy an incredible panoramic view and free time for lunch (not included). Finally we will arrive to El Calafate after crossing the Patagonian steppe, recharged with the natural energy of this unique glacier.
