We did this hike since it was recommended. We are so glad we did. He was a difficult hike to to length, mud, and steep portions. The altitude was not a problem and the change in elevation was not a problem. Once we got to the lake, we simply walked around on a well worn path to the glacier where we found some small overhangs and inserts to investigate. You can see the rocks frozen in time in the ice. There was a crack you could see the sky. Underneath the glacier was blue ice.
Even though the hike was long and difficult, it was worth it. Be prepared for water, mud, and slippery conditions. The guides say 8 hours; we did it in 6. this depends on your fitness and how much time you want to sightsee. Bring water and food and pack out what you bring in.

For a boy from Australia where flat and hot are the norm, this was great. First time up and close to a glacier with Ice that was years old, was so good. We did not realise the mountains were so high.

Really we have seen rather a few glaciers and walked on several.
Of course they are wonders for sure but I guess once one has seen 10 or so....they are sort of just ice for the G and T.

The trekking is really nice, 8 hours walking, a bit hard. Our guide named Pedro was super friendly and taught us nice stuff, he was the best. Stay warm because once you get there it’s really windy and the weather is always cold. I would love to go back.

I booked the penguins boat and Estancia Harberton as one excursion thru Trip Advisor. Information was very limited and also plain wrong.
The time in the ticket says 10AM, however the excursion starts at 9 and you are required to be there by 8:30. The tour operator said this keeps happening but nothing is done to fix it.
The excursion that includes Harberton doesn’t seem to go everyday, so if you miss your time, you might miss your excursion all together.
A AR$20 port fee is required. You have to stay in line to pay for it, hence the extra 30 minutes required. This is cash only.
Food onboard is expensive as expected, but you are free to bring your own.
There are no security checks at port or any restrictions on bringing food, alcohol, etc. Otherwise they have a full bar.
The first 3 stops are fairly quick and then it is a long ride to the penguins, over one hour. Well worth it. I recommend bringing zoom lenses or binoculars. The boat gets really close but only the small junior penguins are on the coast. The bigger ones are nesting in land not too far.
There is a photographer onboard that is quite annoying. She is trying to get pics and makes you move out of her way to take pictures of those who are showing interest in buying their pictures.
The boat is nice, comfortable and clean. It is cold outside even in the summer, so bring all your layers.
Once you get to the Estancia, those who paid for that option stay behind and come back by bus arriving back around 6PM, while the others go back by boat and return by 3:30PM.
At the Estancia, everything is cash only and we were not told that in advance so now you know. I found the food surprisingly well priced or on the cheap side. There is a restaurant and a tea house, and again bringing your own food is perfectly fine.
The guided tour was fantastic! Loads of information about the family that really is the history of the island too. Very interested and told in details for over an hour.
The total time is 10 hours! Nowhere in Trip Advisor you get an idea of how long it was going to be. If you, like me, go out on Argentinean time the night before, you’ll need some high dosis of caffeine.
I’m told both the penguins and the estancia can be done in other ways, by car and privately. I’m not sure that’s worth it as this excursion has a great value for your buck ratio, IMHO.
Overall, a great experience!

I'd never been inside a glacier. I'm really not sure how safe the entire thing was, but I went twice. Two days later one of the caves we had been in had collapsed. Mind blowing. I practically cried standing inside of it- and a gorgeous hike to boot. Use common sense.

The hike was steep but loads of fun. At the top, we explored the glacier and ice cave. The trail was very muddy and slippery.

Even though this is not a pretty touristic spot, I highly recommend this route: the trekking experience is wonderful and very complete. It starts with forest, then goes via 'humedales' plenty of heavy mud and finally reaches the rocky mountain part to the lake 'laguna de los tempanos' with the breathtaking sight of the glacier vinciguerra. This is a perfect spot for lunch and a quick (mindful) rest. Once there, go around the lake from the right side, visit the cueva de los tempanos and, if you have the appropriate gear (grampones) and are adventurous enough, you can even climb up (at least a part of) the glacier! AWESOME. The route is marked and the way up is easy to follow. However, it is pretty easy to lose track in the way back. BE ATTENTIVE. Difficulty is moderate-high and I would not recommend it for kids. The total back and forth time is around 7h. And most important. BRING YOUR VERY BEST MOUNTAIN WATER PROOF BOOTS: it is plenty of mud, water and a heavy irregular terrain of roots, rocks, etc. Do not forget water and some food too.
