Mini Trekking

Take the opportunity to explore a piece of the rugged outback of Argentina with a mini trek by way of the footbridges of the Periot Moreno Glacier. Throughout your nine hour excursion, in a group of not more than 20 persons, you will experience the wonders of a glacier hike, as you discover the Andean forest and take an exhilarating ice walk. The trek will begin with a departure from El Calafate and a moderate descent to the footbridges of the Perito Moreno Glacier, arriving to Puerto las Sombras. Lose yourself in the beauty of the natural surroundings as the trek continues to the south wall and puts you in sight of the Canal de los Tempanos, and finally to the other side of the Brazo Rico. Here you will come to a refuge and the beginning of the footpath which will lead to the base of the glacier. In small groups, enjoy a brief 20 minute walk through the Andean forest, before getting a burst of adrenaline as you are equipped and prepared to make your way across the ice. Take this hour and 40 minutes to savor your rugged, picturesque surroundings. Afterwards, return to the mountain refuge to refuel with a boxed lunch brought from El Calafate, before you begin your trek back to your starting point. Returning along the footbridges of the Perito Moreno Glacier, you will get another dose of the beauty of the landscape, stopping for an hour, before the return to El Calafate.
