The glacier is located 80 km from downtown Calafate, and along the access road you can appreciate the different types of formations offered by the landscape. You can get to the glacier lookout point and footbridges on your own car, a hired taxi, regular bus services or other options from tourist companies.
Other choices include navigating through icebergs and treks on the glacier. You can choose between the mini-trekking and the big-ice options, both proposing walks on the glacier with crampons. As the surface of the glacier is irregular, the walk varies in extension and complexity, offering a large variety of ice formations like crevasses, seracs, drains, small lagoons, etc.
The excursion provides information and explanation on the flora and fauna of the area as well as on the glaciations and the spectacular rupture event. If you prefer to navigate through the different rivers and channels that flow into the glacier, you can choose between the Nautical Safari, Leal Cruise - Spirit of the Glacier, Todo Glaciares, among other options.
