Minitrekking: Walk on the glacier

The excursion begins in the embarking pier located in “Bajo las Sombras” port, about 6 km before the glacier Balconies- where you embark for a 20 minutes navigation across the Rico Arm, enjoying breathtaking views of the Perito Moreno glacier’s front wall.
You disembark on the opposite shore. Once on the ice the guides put each participant a pair of crampons on.
The two hours circuit that follows introduces you to the fascinating landscape of the glaciers: streams, small lagoons, gullies, cravasses and plenty of ice formations of the most incredible blues. The trekking is moderate. The ice surface over which you walk is irregular, but firm and safe. After the walk, a stroll through the forest brings you back to the shelter. And after you go 1 hour to the Balconies.
Age: Between 10 and 65 years old.
