ITINERARY

Explore the ins and outs of the Perito Moreno Glacier, an adventurers dream!

The excursion begins in the embarking pier located in “Bajo de las Sombras” port, about 6 km before the glacier Balconies, where you embark for a 10 minutes navigation across the Rico Arm, enjoying breathtaking views of the Perito Moreno glacier’s front walls.

After checking the gear, we get ready, pick up the crampons and walk following the lateral moraine, for an hour and a half, until we reach the access to the glacier. After fitting harnesses and crampons on our footwear we start the ice trekking.

There is a breathtaking view of the immense plateau of ice.
During the walk you will be introduced to a number of features within the ice, huge moulins, crevasses, caves, and above all the special feeling of exploring the middle of the ice.

Expert bilingual mountain guides will always lead you, looking after your safety and teaching you the “ways of the ice”.

You will hike for about 3 hours and a half, and spend some time having lunch somewhere on the ice.

Back on the moraine we start our descent back to the port, to take the boat and navigate for 20 minutes, very close to the southern wall. Then go back to the "civilization" after having enjoyed one of the most spectacular ice treks over the world.

IMPORTANT: Only suitable for people between 18 and 50 years of age Difficulty: Moderate - It requires good Physical condition
