Ice Trekking - Hotel El Calafate - Argentina

If just seeing the mega glacier Perito Moreno isn’t enough for you, if you feel you must also touch it, be in the midst of its blue-white spikes, then take a hike. Mini Trekking is a two-hour excursion across the ice field. If you’re up for an even greater challenge, then do the Big Ice. This longer, three-hour trek to see cerulean blue lagoons, ice caves and other wonders of Perito Moreno’s frozen world, is only offered in the summer.
