Wake up and enjoy your first full day of exploring Patagonia with friends! You’ll start the trip off with an amazing day exploring the Perito Moreno Glacier.

As a group, you’ll visit the UNESCO World Heritage site of Glaciers National Park, home to approximately 200 glaciers! Your guide will lead you through the walkways to get a solid look at this awesome ice field from the various viewpoints.

Prefer to get up close and personal? Sign up for the optional Perito Moreno Glacier Ice Trek where you’ll get to explore the glacier by boat and then ascend the ice yourself! The adventure begins with a boat ride along the towering facade of the glacier, followed by disembarking on the opposite shore. From there, you will walk along the lateral side until ascending over the ice. This 2 hour, moderate circuit on the ice will introduce you to the fascinating glacial landscape. Take in the most incredible shades of blue as you pass streams, small lagoons, crevasses and sculptural ice formations. Truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
