How to reach:
The nearest town to reach Perito Moreno is El-Calafate, which probably is the town you will land to, if you are planning to explore Patagonia region in Argentina.
There are direct flights from Buenos Aries to El Calafate. Now Perito Moreno lies in the National park and there are rules on how many people can enter in the national park as well as hike Perito Moreno in a day. This is to protect the area and ensure overcrowding which may destroy this preserved area.
Hielo & Aventura is the only company who is licensed to take the guided hikes on the glacier and the since there is a restriction of number of people who can hike in a day, people book days in advance to miss an opportunity!
The tour includes everything i.e. transfers to and back from El-Calafate, food packets, water, boat ride to and from the base of glacier, equipment like ropes, harness, crampons which are necessary for the hike etc.
Its a 12 hour tour, which runs from 7:00 to 19:00, so be prepared for a long and very adventurous day; rest assured you won't regret having the long and tiring day at the end :)
