Minitrekking on the Perito Moreno Glaciar
Today you will have the once-in-a-lifetime experience to walk on the magnificent Perito Moreno Glacier, one of the most spectacular sites in Patagonia.
Mini-trekking is the best way to experience the Perito Moreno glacier! This trekking has moderate difficulty; if you are looking for something challenging, we suggest the "Big Ice Trekking" ideal for experienced trekkers.
The Perito Moreno Glacier is located in Los Glaciares National Park, a UNESCO heritage site.
This is a Group activity that begins in the embarking pier located in “Bajo de 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, where specialized bilingual mountain guides welcome you and lead you to a small shelter. After checking the last details, groups of not more than 20, follow their guides along the lake’s shore towards the edge of the glacier. Once on the ice the guides put each participant a pair of crampons on, and explain how to use them. The 1:30 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. You will receive explanations about flora, fauna and general glaciology of the region and also about the particular phenomenon that happens in the Perito Moreno Glacier and eventually produces its rupture. After the walk, a stroll through the forest brings you back to the shelter.on the Glacier.

Today enjoy the unique experience to see the glacier from the water and feeling very small next to the giant glacier! If you haven´t kayaked before, have no fear as you will receive excellent instructions, the guides will teach you how to move safely within the astonishing glacial waters.
