The Big Ice Adventure is an exhilarating guided excursion that takes you on an unforgettable journey across the vast, awe-inspiring expanse of the Perito Moreno Glacier. This thrilling adventure offers a unique opportunity to explore the glacier's otherworldly landscape of deep crevasses, towering ice formations, and stunning blue-hued caverns.

The Big Ice Adventure begins with a scenic boat ride across Lake Argentino to the edge of the glacier. Equipped with crampons and accompanied by skilled guides, you will embark on an approximately 3-4 hour trek across the ice, traversing the glacier's rugged terrain and learning about its unique geology and formation.

Embarking on the Big Ice Adventure is a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience that allows you to intimately connect with the powerful, ever-changing landscape of the Perito Moreno Glacier, creating memories that will last a lifetime.

The tour usually includes a transfer from El Calafate and a visit to the main viewing platform, but we recommend driving and exploring the park on your own, and only joining the tour on the boat to the glacier. This way you can get the best of both worlds – catch a scenic boat ride with the glacier hike, but still explore the glacier independently and avoid 4 long hours on a tour bus. It can be easily arranged with the only operator (check the links section for their official website).
