Enjoy a full-day tour with boat trip to see the Perito Moreno glacier and a 3.5 hours ice hiking tour with experienced guides.
What to Expect
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, you get ready to pick up the crampons and walk following the lateral moraine for an hour and a half until we reach the access off the glacier. After fitting harnesses and crampons on your footwear you 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, start your descent back to the port to take the boat and navigate for 20 minutes very close to the southern wall.
