Morning transfer to Los Glaciares National Park (40 min).
Start your adventure at the Bajo de las Sombras pier, about 4 miles (6 km) before the Perito Moreno viewpoint. A 20-minute cruise across Lake Rico's glacial waters will take you to the south face of the imposing glacier.
As you hop off the boat at the glacier's foot, your guides will equip you with crampons and show you how to hike on ice. In addition to safety instructions, they will provide you lots of interesting facts about the local flora and wildlife as well as general notions of glaciology about Patagonia with special attention to the unique Perito Moreno, one of the world's rare glaciers that keeps expanding.
The hike on the glacier takes about 1 hour and 40 minutes to complete across the uneven ice surface that is firm and safe to walk on. Your expert guides will explore with you the many facets during this breathtaking adventure.
Depending on the time of the day, your box lunch will be handed before or after your hike.
You will also have one hour to view the glacier from a distant viewpoint either before or after your hike.
