The excursion begins at the pier located in “Bajo de las Sombras” port, where you embark to cross the Rico Lake, enjoying breathtaking views of the Perito Moreno glacier front wall.
After the disembarkation, we will reach the refuge, where the guides organize the groups. Then you start a walk along the lake shore about 20 minutes to the glacier. When you reach the edge of the ice, the guides place the crampons on the participants, who are instructed on how they should move on the ice. During the tour on the glacier you will be able to appreciate a variety of ice formations like: cracks, seracs, sinks, small lagoons, etc.
