AMÉRICA DEL SUR HOSTEL CALAFATE | TOURS
GLACIAR PERITO MORENO | ALTERNATIVE TOUR
Daily departures at 8 AM
Duration: 9 hours
We leave early to enjoy the area almost alone, seeing all the wildlife possible because we took an alternative route, the historic farm route.
We’re in no hurry…
While we’ve already scheduled stops at the best places to take pictures of the region’s wildlife and landscapes, we can also stop wherever you’d like to take more photos! We’ll cross the fields of one of the most emblematic estates in Patagonia and pass some of the largest estates just past it. On the way, we’ll make a stop at the house of our friend, Don Echeverría. Don Echeverría is an emblematic gaucho of the area that, years ago, set up a travelers inn that has so much character, it’s hard to convince travelers to leave there in order to continue the tour.
While you enjoy some mates or a coffee with cakes (not included), you’ll see some amazing scenery before entering Los Glaciares National Park.
Imagine visiting the Moreno Glacier from such a super special and natural place!
Your enthusiastic guide will coordinate your logistics, help group members get to know each other, and will answer all of your questions about the glacier.
How was it formed? Why is it located here?
How does Perito Moreno’s tidewater glacier cycle work? Your guide has the answers to all of these questions and more. Then we enter the footbridge area. Here, we’ll give the group free time so that each person can explore and spend the time in the way that he or she pleases, whether that’s making friends, discovering the sounds of the glacier, or having a glass of whiskey on the rocks – with glacier ice! Later, after “getting drunk” with the Moreno Glacier, you’ll have the option of taking a 45-minute walk in front of the glacier to continue watching and listening as giant pieces of ice fall into the water of Lake Argentino.
Finally, we’ll embark on our return to the hostel, using the conventional asphalted road.
