Like a painting with different contrasts, surrounded by mountains, lakes, and the loneliness of the steppe, the Glaciers shine with their everlasting ice. On the other hand, in El Chalten, the Mount Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre offer a natural postcard difficult to forget.
The Glacier Perito Moreno is just amazing. The noise of the ice when it breaks, with those massive chunks falling from the top to the water, it’s like hearing multiple thunders at the same time.

After breakfast, we will go on our excursion to the impressive Perito Moreno Glacier.
One of the most interesting activities to experience at the glacier is the tour that begins at Bajo de las Sombras pier, located aproximately 4 miles away from the glacier. You will cross the Rico Branch on a boat (Nautical safari), and navigate about 20 minutes in front of the glacier.
The landing is on the opposite shore and after a short walk, you will arrive to the shelter where you will receive a complete explanation about glaciation and the activity of the ice trek. After this you will start a walk through the exhuberant Magellanic forest.
This Minitrekking is particularly attractive because of the close contact you will experience with the glacier. You will be able to see the glacier’s summit. There are also caves that allow you to reach the very base of the glacier, as well as small internal deep blue lagoons. The views of the glacier’s wall and the lake are magnificent.
You will be able to walk on top of the glacier with our expert guides for over 2 hours.
The way back is a walk through the forest again, ending at the shelter. You will have one hour for lunch. After the Minitrekking, you will get abord your ship and return to Bajo de las Sombras’ port and to the glacier’s footbridges.
We will walk along the tracks and will make stops to take photographs. From the view points we will clearly see ice blocks of different sizes continually detaching from the glacier and falling into the water, causing a tremendous sound and amazing waves, which makes this view an unforgettable sight.
Transfer back to the lodge.
