Then, you will disembark at the southwest coast of the lake and get to a mountain shelter where the guides will divide you into groups of 20 people to start the walk towards the glacier. Before getting on the ice, the guides will give you crampons. The hike on the glacier takes approximately one hour and a half. You will see crevasses, water holes, and small lagoons. The boat ride back to the port gives you a close view of the ice walls.
