After a looking at a few different tours available to visit glaciers and actually get on to the ice in El Calafate, we decided to wait to get to El Chalten to see what was available there, if nothing we were going back to El Calafate anyway. On arriving in El Chalten we went in to Patagonia Adventures and discovered... More

We were initially reluctant to do this tour, so,Ely because of the expense. But once there, we were so happy to have experienced the glacier. The boat ride was lovely. Be prepared for a challenging rock climb to the glacier. Ladders have been installed to make the climb safer and the guides are exceptional at ensuring your safety. We loved... More

We spent 5 days in El Chalten and the Viedma Pro tour was definitely one of the highlights. We were in 4 adults and booked the tour directly in El Chalten. The office staff was very helpful and patient as we checked weather sites trying to define the best day to go. Price is steep but it was worth it... More

The ice climbing excursion with patagonia adventures is the real deal! we scaled over rocks on the promontory leading down to the glacier and spent an incredible day (the fact that the sun was bright and shiny and the temps warm added to the experience) with pablo on the glacier. pablo was funny, knowledgeable, and very encouraging and patient. we...

They are the only one to operate on the Viedma glacier. The glacier is far to be as beautiful as the Perito Moreno, however the experience seems much more "authentic". I went there during high season and only max 40 people on the glacier (if you go to Perito you will feel the difference). I decided to go for the... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We were lucky with the weather - fine & sunny although the wind did get up later in the day. You need to be a bit nimble hiking on the ice amongst the crevasses. After lunch we had ago at ice climbing, would recommend everyone having a go. After that we were served Tia Maria &... More

There are, in our opinion, three great reasons to go to El Chalten: 1) To do technical climbing on Mt. Fitz Roy, etc.; 2) To do serious mountain trekking in these beautiful mountains of the Argentinian Andes; 3) To see and/or photograph Mt. Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre. If one simply wants to see a glacier up close, to take... More

This was already known the day before (I had been adviced on it by my trekking guide). I went to the company which told me they probably maintain the excusion - what they did. As... More

Good afternoon Thanks for sharing your comments on Tripadvisor! We regret you have had a bad experience with us. We really work very hard to be able to reconcile the inclemencies of the weather and the operation of our excursions. When you work so involved with nature, it is extremely difficult not to have inconveniences, as may have happened on... More
