El Calafate: Perito Moreno Kayak Experience with Transport
- Pickup available
- Duration: 8 hours
A good experience if you aren’t planning on doing the Moreno ice trek. We did both and feel that the cruise was too long and confined. We would have preferred spending an extra day in Chalten. Boats are restricted from getting within 5km or so from the Upsala glacier and not worth the stop in my opinion. Spegazzini was ok and the perspective from up close at Moreno was interesting but it takes so long to get between them all. The Lago views are spectacular though. The tour took about 9 hours without transfers to Calafate.
Well organised, pick up and drop back to hotel. Informative guide (spoke good English). Fantastic experience seeing this gigantic glacier up close , both on boat and from walkway! Just a note, excursion called trip with ‘‘optional boat safari’ - wrongly and perhaps stupidly I assumed this was included in the price, as no extra cost was mentioned. We had in fact to pay an extra 1000 pesos (about £12.50) each to go on the boat - but well worth it!
The pick up was on time. The staff were professional and very friendly, and gave great commentary and explanations of glaciers. The day was well paced the lunch was fantastic and the time spent at each point of interest was ideal. If you are short on time this must be the one you start with during your stay..
We splurged for Captain’s Club and it was well worth it. Roomy comfortable seats. We had only 8 people in a private room that may hold 30. Great window viewing. Private balcony. Wine, appetizers. Private lunch area at the destination. Great private English park guide
A fantastic day and a wonderful experience seeing Perito Moreno Glazier! Well organised and an excellent tour guide - Leonal. I wish I could have stayed longer in El Calafate to see more of the National Park and the glaciers.
