What to expect

This 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, you get ready, pick up the crampons and walk following the lateral moraine, for an hour and a half, until reaching the access to the glacier. After fitting harnesses and crampons on your footwear, you start the ice trekking. 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. You will hike for about 3 hours and a half, and spend some time having lunch somewhere on the ice. Back on the moraine, you start the descent back to the port, to take the boat and navigate for 20 minutes, very close to the southern wall.
