Private Tour from El Calafete
When you book, you can decide between two different private trips departing from El Calafate.
Perito Moreno Glacier
We'll pick you up from your hotel at the selected time and set course for the Los Glaciares National Park. We'll travel in a private vehicle and after about an hour and a quarter we'll reach our destination. You'll be amazed by the incredible views of the Perito Moreno glacier, an ice wall at almost 80 metres high!
You'll have a private guide so you can find out all about the origins of this Patagonian glacier and its importance for the region. You'll also have time to get something to eat and walk along the many footbridges that act as balconies in front of the glacier. We'll spend around 5 hours in Perito Moreno, before we take you back to the hotel.
Did you know that El Chaltén is the Argentinian capital of hiking? We'll explore its trails on this private trip that will start when we pick you up from your hotel.
The three-hour journey will serve as a panoramic tour of the area, as we'll get to see Lake Argentino or the rivers Santa Cruz and La Leona. When you arrive in El Chaltén, you'll be able to choose between different options. Do you want to wander around the town and enjoy a quiet day with views of the surrounding mountains? Or would you prefer to go on one of the many hiking routes? You can walk around Laguna Capri or Cerro Torre. After two hours we'll make our way back to El Calafate.
Why book a private tour?
By booking a private tour not only will you enjoy a tailored experience with a guide exclusively for you, but you'll also be able to do it any day of the week and at the time that best suits you. What's more, if you're a large group, you'll save money!
When you book, you must specify the time you want us to pick you up from your hotel. We recommend starting at 9 am to make the most of daylight.
