At the Bajo las Sombras port, located 5 km before reaching the glacier, you embark to cross the "Rico" Lake and descend on the southwestern coast after 20 minutes sailing. With mountain guides, you start a one and a half hour hikking in a path next to the glacier, reaching a spectacular viewpoint where you attach the iron crampons and start walking on the ice. Once on the Perito Moreno glacier, the ice trekking takes about 4 hours in total, in which you will observe incredible blue lakes, deep cracks, eternal sinks, and amazing caves, which will make you feel at the center of the glacier. You can enjoy a unique pic-nic surrounded by unparalleled beauty.
