Detalle de la excursión:

 

It all starts early in the morning, when our transfer goes to look for each passenger at their respective hotel. Once on board, we face the route to Los Glaciares National Park.


Upon entering the Park, we headed to the port "Bajo de las Sombras" approximately 6 km. before the Glacier Viewpoint, where we embark to cross Lake Rico, reaching the southwest coast after approximately 20 minutes of navigation in front of the south wall of the Perito Moreno glacier. It is there where the adventure begins.

Trekking on the Glacier:

This unmissable experience begins in the "Bajo de los sombra" port in Los Glaciares National Park. There we boarded a boat and began the crossing of the Rich Arm, and then disembarked on the west coast of it, where the great adventure begins.

The hike begins on the southern brunette of the Perito Moreno glacier, and in just over an hour you can access a panoramic point with an incredible view of the Glacier. It is there where the experienced guides will place the crampons and harnesses to begin this adventure below zero.

By taking your first steps on the glacier, the world takes a new form composed of blue lagoons, bottomless cracks, giant sinks, eternal caves. Now, you left planet earth and you are on another planet with a geography worthy of Hollywood.

For approximately three and a half hours you will witness the beauty of the most incredible glacier in the world. At all times, the guides will comment and explain the history and future of the glaciers and how they form. In addition, you will live an experience that few can tell: lunch on the white mantle of this ice oasis.

As we descend from the glacier, we set out for the boat to begin the return without first enjoying one of the most incredible views of this frozen titan.
