Description: Departure from Los Notros, in one of our vans to the pier Bajo de Las Sombras, located only 1 km from the Hostería. A 20 minutes sail across the Rico Arm with breathtaking views of the glacier’s front walls, will take you to the opposite shore. Specialized mountain guides welcome you and lead you to small shelter. Small groups follow their guides along the lake’s shore towards the edge of the glacier. Once on the ice, they will put each the crampons and explain how to use them. The two hours circuit that follows introduce you to the fascinating landscape of the glaciers: small lagoons, gullies, crevasses 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 general glaciology of the region and also about the particular about the Perito Moreno Glacier. After the walk, a stroll through the forest brings you back to the shelter. Our vans will take you back to the Hostería.
