Wildthentic is proud to launch, with exclusive access, their renowned kayak experience, this time, in front of UNESCO World Heritage site of Perito Moreno Glacier, North Side.
For the last 5 years they received more than 5,000 customers in Upsala Glacier’s Waters.
Thanks to their positive feedback of the experience, it is today considered one of the greatest things to do in El Calafate. Unfortunately, due to navigation restrictions from the park authorities, they had to discontinue their bestselling activity in Upsala. As a result, after field research and park negotiations, they received the permit to operate in front of Perito Moreno Glacier.
“In El Calafate, we are immensely proud to have this unique kayak experience. It is so eco-friendly and raising the profile of the area. So, when we had to implement the new restriction, we did not want to lose this activity and happily collaborated with Wildthentic to find the most suitable alternative location.” said Carlos Corvalan, Head of Parque Nacional Los Glaciares and former president of Argentina National Parks.
Julio Ventaja, CEO of Wildthentic commented: “One door closes and a better one opens… We are so thrilled to be able to offer a new way to take in the breathtaking beauty of the towering Perito Moreno Glacier, at water level, by kayak. Approaching this monumental wall of ice, 74 metres above the sea, from our kayak, is truly humbling when confronted with such powerful nature. With no engines, we enjoy pure silence only broken by the deafening sounds of the ice, carving, cracking, falling, as the blue monster breathes and moves. It’s extraordinary, and an opportunity not to be missed.”
