After passing by the hotels, we will take the Provincial Route N°11 to enter Los Glaciares National Park. This unique natural wonder has been declared a "World Heritage Site of Humanity" by UNESCO in 1981.

Stop At: Perito Moreno National Park

Once on the ground, a short 20-minute walk begins with a talk about glaciology along the shore of the lake towards the glacier. Once on the ice, the guides put on each participant a pair of crampons and give them instructions on how they should walk on the ice. In the about 1:30 hour walk on the glacier, you will be able to appreciate a wide variety of ice formations as well as cracks, glacier mills and small ponds. The trekking difficulty is moderate. The ice surface over which you walk is irregular, but firm and safe. You will get information about flora and fauna and about the particular phenomenon that only takes place in the Perito Moreno Glacier and that eventually produces its rupture.

Duration: 2 hour
