It's up to you how you want to spend your time in Argentina's Glacier Region, and we can organise several private or shared tours according to your interests and time should you like to.

Private tour of the Perito Moreno Glacier Private tour of the Perito Moreno Glacier

You will be brought by private vehicle through the national park, a beautiful drive of some 2.5 hours with stops to enjoy the view, including the Corner of Sighs, where you get your first full view of the Glacier. During the drive, you might catch a glimpse of red and grey foxes fleeing across the heathery landscape, whilst in the distance cinnamon-coloured guanaco deer balance on rocky crags and below, large Patagonian hares leap from bushes across streams. Along the roadside crawl little armadillos and if you are very lucky, you might just see the tawny back of a puma. Rosy flamingos gather at the water’s edge while hawks and kites hover over the hillside, eyeing scurrying voles and other rodents. And, just possibly, way way up above, you might spy the magnificent silhouette of the condor.

Arriving at the humbling sight of the vast Perito Moreno Glacier, your guide will then take you on a tour along the specially built walkways. These give you superb viewpoints and photo taking opportunities while your guide brings to life the environmental and local importance of the glacier.

The Argentine Lake District is a beautiful, picture-postcard region of snow capped peaks, forested slopes, crystalline lakes and rivers.

This is the perfect place to enjoy the great outdoors with all manner of outdoor activities possible including hiking, mountain biking, fishing, golf, horse riding, kayaking, mountaineering and rafting.

Private and full day's scenic surroundings tour of the Lake District Private and full day's scenic surroundings tour of the Lake District

This is a full day’s excursion with your private guide around Bariloche, and the various lake settlements and scenery that make up this stunning area.

You will be collected from your hotel at around 10am by your private guide and driven towards the Limay River. This involves a forty minute drive along paved roads from downtown Bariloche plus an hour on gravel roads which will take you to Villa Traful for your first stop. The journey is particularly scenic and allows you to take in the magnificent, panoramic views and changing landscapes among other natural beauties. Your English-speaking guide is there to fill you in on the natural history of the area plus answer any questions you may have. Another hour further down the road will take you to Villa La Angostura where you’ll have the choice of having lunch at one of the excellent local restaurants (not included) with a view of the lake, or just enjoy a quiet prepared picnic (included at request) at an isolated beach or lookout point. In the afternoon, you will return to your hotel via the lakeshore road that follows the contour of the Nahuel Huapi Lake, and once again offering some stunning panoramas along the way.

Please wear comfortable clothing and good walking shoes as there are some brief walks included in this excursion.
