What to Expect

Enter an unexplored site and enjoy a prime walk to the Frias Lake. From here sail along in a motorized rubber boat to cross the Lake and finally the hike to the Big Glacier. Reach a magical place. A glacier valley, with changing environments and finally the amphitheater of the Big Glacier. There you will have lunch and see the Cube and Dickson Galcier.
