This unforgettable experience begins very early in the morning, at “Bajo de las Sombras” Port, after visiting the Glacier’s catwalks. Once on-board, participants cross the Rico Branch, and after 10 minutes they disembark on the west coast. From this point, the mountain guides lead the group even closer to the glacier to take the crampons and start the approximation crossing.
The path runs along the southern moraine of Perito Moreno glacier, and after an hour participants find a spectacular viewpoint, from where they will have access to the ice.
Once over the glacier and with the crampons already put on, the world takes a new perspective: blue lagoons, deep crevasses, huge sinks, magical caves and the unique feeling of being in the centre of the glacier. Participants will always be accompanied by expert trained guides. During three hours and a half every corner of the most special glacier of the world is explored, while the guides invite to learn more about the ice and its environment.
Over a selected spot of this immense white blanket , a place of unparalleled beauty, participants will have 30 minutes for lunch (picnic is NOT INCLUDED).
Once back on the moraine, and after another hour of walking, the boat back to “civilization” is taken, after having enjoyed one of the most spectacular ice trekkings in the world.
