BIG ICE


Journey to the centre of the Glaciar
 
Passengers will be picked up at 7.00am
At 09:00 AM we sail across The Rico Arm onboard our boat “The Tehuelche”.
10 minutes later mountain guides will welcome you at the opposite shore, very close to the Perito Moreno Glacier.
After checking the gear, we get ready, pick up the crampons and walk following the lateral moraine towards the centre of the glacier.
After an hour’s walk we reach the ice.
There is a breathtaking view of the immense plateau of ice.
During the walk you will be introduced to a number of features within the Ice, huge moulins, crevasses, caves, and above all the special feeling of exploring the glacier’s centre.
Expert mountain guides will always lead you, looking after your safety and teaching you the “ways of the ice”.
You will hike for about 3 hours, and spend some time having lunch there.
Back on the moraine we start lowering the mountain to get on the boat around
03:00 PM. The return is about 7:00 pm

Important notes: This walk is aimed at fit people between 18 and 45 years old with good health. There are 7 hours of walking through diverse terrains, and it’s not suitable for pregnant women.
What to bring: Sunglasses, sun cream, gloves, hat, raincoat jacket, hiking boots, backpack (40lts), food and water bottle.
