What to expect

This tour gives you the chance to explore one of the most unique glaciers in the world! The excursion begins in the embarking pier located in Bajo de las Sombras port, where you embark for a 20 minutes navigation across the Rico Arm, enjoying breathtaking views of the Perito Moreno glacier’s front wall. You disembark on the opposite shore, where specialized bilingual mountain guides welcome you and lead you to a small shelter. Groups of not more than 20 participants, follow their guides along the lake's shore towards the edge of the glacier. Once on the ice, the guides put each participant a pair of crampons on, and explain how to use them.

Enjoy a 2-hour circuit to the fascinating landscape of the glaciers. The trekking is moderate. The ice surface over which you walk is irregular but firm and safe. Learn about flora, fauna, and general glaciology of the region. After the walk, a stroll through the forest brings you back to the shelter.
