Beginning at the Bajo de las Sombras port, on the west coast of Rico Lake, a boat awaits to carry you to your destination (10 minutes). The Perito Moreno glacier's front cliffs are stunningly beautiful. An hour and a half hike along the lateral moraine to the glacier access. Step out onto the ice with harnesses and crampons. There are azure lagoons in the heart of a glacier, huge crevices, enormous drains, and caves. Spend 3 1/2 hours on one of the world's most magnificent glaciers. Your guide discusses the ice formations and the surrounding region along the trip. After lunch, return to the boat for 20 minutes near the southern wall. (This tour is for ages 18 to 50.)

Day 1: Perito Moreno Big Ice Adventure

  • 1 Lunch
This incredible experience begins at the Bajo de las Sombras port. There a boat awaits to take you to the west coast of Rico Lake (approx. 10 mins) where you disembark. Enjoy breathtaking views of the Perito Moreno glacier’s front walls as your guide double checks all the gear before heading out. Hike following the lateral moraine, for about an hour and a half, until we reach the access to the glacier. After fitting harnesses and crampons on our footwear step out onto the ice. The world takes a new perspective: blue lagoons, deep cracks, enormous drains, caves, and the unique sensation to feel in the middle of the glacier. Spend about three and a half hours with your guide on one of the most spectacular glaciers in the world. Along the way, your guide stops to explain the ice formations and surrounding areas. Enjoy lunch on the ice before returning to the boat to navigate for 20 minutes close to the southern wall. (This tour has a minimum age of 18 years old and a maximum age of 50 years old).

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
