Package Itinerary

Full day Minitrekking excursion in the seat in bus service with English speaking guide specialized on glacier trekking. We embark on a motorboat for 20 passengers 70 kilometers away from El Calafate, at Bajo de la Sombra Port. During this trip, we can see the southern ice wall of Perito Moreno Glacier until we arrive at the Rico Channel where we descend. Then we arrive at Río Moreno Fall, where we start using the crampons and picks to help us walking on the glacier. During the trekking, we can appreciate different ice formations such as cracks, seracs, drains, little lagoons, and much more. This little walk on the ice lasts 2 hours and its physical requirement is intermediate. It is only inconvenient for elderly people and persons with reduced mobility. The ice surface is irregular but firm and safe. We recommend passengers to bring a lunch box to eat in the forest at the shore of the lake before embarking. Lunch at a restaurant is not possible. The excursion is not canceled for bad weather conditions. It includes an hour visit to the glacier viewpoint, guide, and transfers in the seat in bus service. Lunch is not included. The admission fee to Los Glaciares National Park is included.
