It doesn’t get much cooler than the Perito Moreno Glacier. Standing 70 metres tall as the spectacular centrepiece of Lake Argentino, this enormous, frozen mass of land is one of Patagonia’s star attractions. From your base in El Calafate, spend a full day discovering the wonders of the glacier and watching icebergs the size of buildings crash into the water below. See a different side of Patagonia when you visit a local family-run Estancia where you’ll learn about life on the ranch and feast on a traditional lunch made with their own produce. This Patagonian adventure may be short, but it packs a real punch.

Why you'll love this trip
  • The Patagonian town of El Calafate serves as the base for your adventure. You’ll have time to explore the town and check out its many restaurants and shops.
  • Spend a full day discovering the truly remarkable Perito Moreno Glacier. Watch icebergs crash into the channel below from viewing platforms, or take an optional cruise around the lake for a different perspective.
  • Visit a local estancia that’s been run by the same family since it was established more than 100 years ago. Take part in ranch activities and tuck into a traditional lunch.

Is this trip right for you?
  • Weather in Patagonia can be wild, so it's important to prepare for all elements. Rain, wind and extreme cold are all part of the adventure.
  • On Short Breaks, you maintain a good level of independence and freedom, with the added bonus of having the details sorted out for you. You’ll have lots of free time and you won’t be accompanied by a Trip Leader. This means that all included activities and tours will be run by different local Intrepid partners, and these may operate independently from each other. The included activities and transfers will operate on a join-in basis, which means that you could have your Adventure all to yourself, or others may join you along the way. If you would prefer to travel in a group with a dedicated Trip Leader, just get in touch with your booking agent and they will take you through some alternatives.
