Los Glaciares National Park If you prefer to come to the National Park on your own, we will meet you in the lower parking lot with snacks. Once we’re all together, the guide will give us a short safety lecture and introduce us to the activity before handing out all the necessary equipment.
Argentinian Lake We’ll have to walk 165 yards (150m) from the parking lot to the shore of the Argentinian Lake, where we’ll do our last paddling practice before jumping in the water. During the kayak tour, which will take around an hour and a half depending on the weather conditions, we’ll paddle in our kayaks by the Perito Moreno Glacier and other icebergs floating in the water.
After finishing up our Perito Moreno Glacier kayak experience, we’ll return to the shores of the Argentinian Lake. If you choose the Half Day option, here’s where we will say goodbye. Hope to see you soon on your next adventure! If you choose the Full Day option, there’s more! Our guide will give us our lunch so we can get back some energy before heading to the Perito Moreno walkways, where we’ll be able to observe the glacier in all of its glory. We’ll have one hour to enjoy the views from the height of the walkways.
Back to El Calafate Time to say goodbye! We’ll meet in the meeting point at the time indicated by our guide to catch the private transportation back to our accommodation in El Calafate. See you in your next adventure!
