You will be dropped off just in front of the glacier allowing you to stroll along the walkways to view the glacier from different viewpoints. Admire breathtaking views of the massive glacier during a walk along its base and watch for the dramatic moment when chunks of ice break off and crash into the waters of the ‘De los Tempanos’ Channel.

Your guided visit to Perito Moreno can be complemented with a unique experience with nature – the mini trekking at the glacier. For your Mini-Trekking at the Perito Moreno Glacier adventure you will take a boat from Bajo de Las Sombras port and after a quick 20-minute sail you land on the opposite shore where you meet your guides. With them you start a walk towards the Perito Moreno Glacier along a picturesque beach where they will give you a complete explanation about glaciation and a safety briefing for the ice trek. After approx. 30-minute walk you get your crampons to head out for the real adventure as you embark on a 1.5 hour trek on the glacier. The guides accompany you, helping you to pick a safe route. Few sights give such an impression of nature’s might and grandeur than the vast slab of opalescent blue ice that is the Perito Moreno Glacier.
