8 AM, I was picked up for a full-day glacier tour, which included a small coffee stop at a ranch, afterwards a 2 hour hike along the Lago Argentino shore, a boat ride to the glacier front, and a couple of hours at the balconies with panoramic view of the most spectacular glacier Perito Moreno.
A coffee to wake up is more than welcome!
First stop at a ranch half an hour away from El Calafate.
Time for a hike…
Our bus entered the Los Glaciares National Park. We walked down the hill to the lake.
This is where our hike ends: a majestic view of the mountains in the background and the southern front of the glacier in the foreground.
But before I leave I’d like to make a quick zoom to capture the scale of the glacier. Will get there closer with the boat, but first we’re going to see its northern front from the balconies.
