Perito Moreno mini trek adventure


During this exhilarating excursion, you'll have the opportunity to experience the awe-inspiring Perito Moreno Glacier, which is considered the landmark of the Argentine Patagonia.

You'll be picked up from your hotel and taken to the Bajo de Las Sombras port. Along the way, you'll be able to admire the breathtaking views of the Perito Moreno Glacier from different angles. Before heading to the port you will have some time to explore the wooden walkways with amazing views of the glacier. If you are lucky you might witness huge masses of ice break down from the glacier and crash into the lake, a truly mesmerizing sight and sound.

But unlike most tours that only allow you to admire the glacier from afar, during this experience, you will have the unique opportunity to hike on it. After a short sail across the shore, you'll meet your guides for the mini-trek and embark on a scenic walk along a picturesque beach. You'll then gear up with crampons to trek across the glacier.

After this unforgettable experience, you'll board the boat again and head back to shore, where you'll have some time to soak in the views before returning to your hotel. To cap off the day, you'll enjoy a small box of delicious alfajores crafted by Elisa, the founder of Alfajores Koonek.

The tour is only available from August to May. Pregnant women and guests with disabilities, mobility issues, heart conditions, or who are overweight are not allowed on the excursion. The allowed age range is between 10 and 65 years old. With the environment in mind, we have chosen to provide this experience as a shared one with other travelers. This means less CO² emission.

Where you'll be

You will be picked up from your hotel for a transfer that takes approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes (covering around 71 km/43 miles) to reach the walkways. Following your exploration of the walkways, a 15-minute transfer will take you to the port, from where you will embark on a 20-minute boat ride to reach the starting point of the trek.

Know before you go

Physicality (2/3)
This experience is for those who want to explore actively. Although not too challenging, these experiences do require some physical fitness. Some examples of what to expect include e-biking, surfing, soft hikes, or SUP.
What to bring
It is advisable to wear warm clothing and bring a hat, gloves, sunglasses, and sunscreen when going for the minitrekking. Proper hiking shoes are essential. Bringing a water bottle is recommended, as you can refill it with the purest water from the glacier during the trek. Although there is a cafeteria on-site, it is suggested to bring a boxed lunch for more flexibility.
