Great place to view the glacier up close. From the walkways you can hear the loud ice cracking and see very close where the big pieces of ice fall into the water. A natural show worth every penny to witness

Hello, hope this helps: 1. What are the excurssions I must go for? At Perito Moreno, go for the Big Ice, you don't need any special shoes really to go up in the ice, they will provide campons for you. It's not really phisically challenging, but it does last for about 5 hours, but is totally worth it. Standing in front of the glaciar itself is amazing, just waiting for their walls to fall, if there againg, I would stay longer for that. 2. What the excurssions are called in terms of Tourism companies? The tourism companies are in contract with the Argentinian government, so there are not many options. For the Big Ice and Perito Moreno in any way, there is only one company you can go to. At El Calafate, go the the Museum of Ice, its worth the visit. For the El Chaltén (Fitz Roy), there are a couple of companies that will drive you there, everything is very well signaled, so no guides needed. 3. I just drafted to visit Boat ride and national park on first day (What is the name of this excursion, I dont know. Please help.). On second day, planning to trek for Fitz Roy. On third day, Perito Moreno and walking on the glacier. Is this feasible? It is feasible, but the ride to Fitz Roy can take up to 3 hours each way, just for you to consider. Perito Moreno if taking the Big Ice will take you one full day as well. The boat ride could be to go to Estancia Cristina. That is a looooong boat ride, you'll end up being on a boat for 7 to 8 hours in total, and if it rains, water leaks inside. Do that only if the trecking in "Cañadon de los Fósiles", Fosil Canion is available, otherwise my advise is to skip it. 4. Do I need any special shoes for Fitz Roy trekking? If yes, then how to manage for only one day trek? I mean , is it possible to rent? Where? How much? No need for special trecking shoes, however since is winter over there, get a pair of regular hiking shoes, just try to buy them water proof. No rent of shoes on site, but there are many outdoor stores in Calafate. 5. Is it ok, to take any packages from the travel agencies or just use public transport? For Perito Moreno and Fitz Roy take a package. 6. What are the names of all the excurssions, I have listed for three days? Big Ice Cañadon de los Fosiles / Estancia Cristina One day Fitz Roy Trecking 7. Approx, how much shall be the expenditure for the all three days? Depends on how you like to travel As, I am travelling with my one friend and our hotel and flight tickets are booked, is the renting of the car good option? Will it be cheap? I would not rent a car if taking packages, which you will need to do anyway at least for the Big Ice and Estancia Cristina. Good luck and have a nice trip!!!
