Big Ice

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 10 minutes navigation across the Rico Arm, enjoying breathtaking views of the Perito Moreno glacier’s front walls.
After checking the gear, we get ready, pick up the crampons and walk following the lateral moraine, for an hour and a half, until we reach the access to the glacier to start the ice trekking.
There is a breathtaking view of the immense plateau of During the walk you will be introduced to a number of features within the ice., huge
moulins, crevasses, caves, and above all the special feeling of exploring the middle of the ice. You will hike for about 3 hours and a half, and spend some time having lunch somewhere on the ice.
Back on the moraine we start our descent back to the port, to take the boat and navigate for 20 minutes, very close to the southern wall. Then you also will visit the Balconies.
