  • I didn’t make the trekk in the Perito Moreno! To expensive and it was a good choice because it’s cheaper and we made a trekk inside this beast all day and it was amazing I really recommended it!!!  more »
  • The glacier explorers has sweet and agraz: the way to arrive is not long, but it is very tedious. Full of rocks, it's monotonous and without much glitter, even less if you got someone who walks slow, already todocel group should go together. The experience on the glacier is not so spectacular, that Yes, some rather good pictures at some points can be removed.

  • We took the tour with EcosPatagonia (100% recommended), at 7:50 you have to be in the Agency for the delivery of snak and mountain kit. At 8:20 we started approximately in the journey, our guides were Nico and Licho, very friendly and good wave. 1 hour less than route is the waterfall of the Otter, where we stopped for the respectvas photos and 1 hour more of journey we arrived at the Park. The day that we went was icy and cloudy, I confess that when we just wanted to stay within the range where it was warm. Us equipped with helmet and got the instruction to begin walking it. First there is a "forest" that are as 20 minutes of moderate to low intensity, the road is not very difficult since it is path and there are trees where held, then it comes the TERROR which are rocks and rocks and more rocks in the form of Hill, is called moraine , time is as 45 minutes, after the last Hill of rocks when I thought that it would already be the glacier on my feet came the TERROR 2.0 where is ice covered by sand and rocks! These rocks are so loose ankles suffer a lot, there comes a time where the ice is most evident and you start to slip you, I would say that time is 1 hour approx to the area where you have to be equipped with crampons and leggings. * At this point had already taken me 3 layers of clothing because with the Trek you walk into heat very fast. And here comes so it worth so much walking, you adjust the crampons and you begin to walk on the ice, you appreciate it away you're everything and that we are a tiny detail in the middle of nature, the guides will explain everything , and they have some amazing routes, took us to a few waterfalls and ice caves. They took us pictures and we ate the snack. * I have to say that every 20 minutes walk parabamos to hydrate ourselves and get sunscreen we spent around Central magnificent of 2 hours in the glacier and then comes back torture, since this time he left the Sun and we were really tired. We are left only with 1 layer of clothing, but even so the heat was enough. As we had been walking all day return is more slow and is really difficult. We went without breaks and delay us around 1.20-1.40 hrs approximately. We arrived at the baths to change clothes and to hydrate ourselves. Then 1 hour and a half trip back where all were sleeping, exhausted by the long walk. IT WAS THE BEST EXPERIENCE I'VE EVER HAD IN MY LIFE, DESPITE THE ENDLESS WALKS AND THE ROAD DIFFICULT, I RECOMMEND 100% DONE THIS TOUR BEFORE HIS DEATH. Now, after arriving at the hostel, showering and eating out began a pain in my knee, and the next day couldn't move me MII, I advise stretch enough before and after the tour and take some anti-inflammatory in the morning before you leave (in appropriate cases). Summary: Highly recommended, worth walking for both magic moment where you realize that you're on a glacier. EcosPatagonia highly recommended 100%
