Package Itinerary

The expedition to the heart of Perito Moreno Glacier is an experience not-to-be-missed. It begins at Bajo de las Sombras pier, located aproximately 4 miles away from the glacier. You will cross the Rico Branch on a boat (Nautical safari), and navigate about 20 minutes in front of the glacier.
The landing is on the opposite shore and after a short walk you will arrive to the shelter, where you will receive a complete explanation about glaciation and the activity of the ice trek. After this you will start a walk through the exhuberant Magellanic forest.

he mountain guides will take you as close as possible to the glacier. After checking the gear, we get ready to pick up the crampons and walk following the lateral moraine towards the center of the galcier.
There is a breathtaking view of the plateau of ice.
During the walk, you will be introduced to a number of features within the ice, huge moulins, big drains, magic caves and above all the special feeling of exploring the middle of the ice.
Expert mountain guides will always lead you, looking after your safety and teaching you “the ways of the ice”. You will jike for about 3 hs and spend some time having lunch somewhere on the ice.
Back on the moraine we start our descent to catch the boat around 15 hs. We are glad to offer one of the most spectacular ice hikes in the world.

As we are back at the port we are driven to the footbridges. From this point we will clearly see ice blocks of differents sizes continually detaching from the glacier and falling into the water, causing a tremendous sound and amazing waves, which makes this view and unforgettable sight.

Important note: this walk is aimed at fit people between 18 and 50 years of age. There are 7 hours of walking through diverse terrains.

Don't forget to bring: Sunglasses. Sunscreen. Waterproof coat Glooves. Trekk boots. Backpack of 40lts. Lunch box. Enough water.
