We are family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids - 11 and 15 years old) arriving in south america in Dec. We have seen glaciers in Alaska and New-Zealand so trying to figure out best parts of Patagonia in short time we have. Also we are not great hikers as well - 2/2.5 hours round trip hiking is ok.
We are doing horse riding in BA for full day Polo game watching/playing so don't know if we want to do another one on these glaciers... plus we are also doing minitrek.
23rd Fly into El Calafate
24th - Mini Trek on Galcier - very excited about this.
Does this include enough glimpse of the glaciers such that we can skip visiting the National Park ourselves?
25th - Options:
o Estancia Cristina or Hielo for Upsala and Spegazzini - not too keen as we have done boat rides with close view of glaciers.
o Or, visit National Park ourselves and spend time there.
o Or, go early to Port Natales.
o Any other?
26th Bus to Port Natales
27th Full day tour on Torres del Paine - may be pick some tour company; some lite hike.
Option may be extra day here for Glacier Grey boat ride which requires 2-3km walk to the boat.
Thank you so much.
