Overview

After pickup from your El Calafate accommodations, the excursion will begin at the pier located in Bajo de las Sombras bay, about 6 kilometers away from the glacier balconies. Embark for a 20-minute navigation across the Brazo Rico, enjoying breathtaking views of the glacier's front walls and Icebergs Channel.

Disembark on the opposite shore and be welcomed by specialized mountain guides who will lead the group to a small shelter. After checking the last details, groups of 20 follow their guides along the lake's shore towards the edge of the glacier. Once on the ice, the guides put each participant in a pair of crampons and explain how to use them.

The 2-hour circuit that follows introduces the fascinating landscape of the glaciers: streams, small lagoons, gullies, crevasses and plenty of ice formations of the most incredible blues. The trekking is moderate, with the ice surface being irregular but firm and safe. Receive explanations about flora, fauna and general glaciology of the region. Learn about the particular phenomenon that happens in the Perito Moreno Glacier, eventually producing its rupture. After the walk, stroll back through to forest to return to the shelter.

This tour includes land transportation from El Calafate if required, as well as a 1 hour visit to the glacier balconies.
