It is easy and not expensive to get to the chairlift, a very slow one, but a nice ride up. We walked down after approaching the glacier. It is a lovely walk with view of the town and cruise ship.

Disclaimer: we were at Perito Merino Glacier two days ago in El Calafate; it's amazeballs. Take a taxi or drive up the hill to Casa de Té, park, and start walking! It takes about 45min-1hr to get to the viewing point for the Glacier; all...More

We decide to go off the beaten track when we heard of this spot. The only thing was that we were not informed that the slopes had been closed due to low snowfall. When we got there we saw the sign that said "Clausrado" which...More

The drive up here is an experience in itself. At the top there is an overpriced tea shop and a steep, wide track that you hike up - the views are amazing, but there is not a lot here to fill your time.
