MINITREKKING OVER PERITO MORENO GLACIER

One the most interesting activities carried out at the Glacier is the tour that starts out at Bajo las Sombras Bay, 8 km before getting to the Glacier.There you board a boat to cross the Rico Arm, and sail for approximately 20 minutes along the Glacier front. You debark on the opposite shore and walk 30 minutes through the forest till you reach the Glacier. Special spikes are adjusted to your footwear before starting the hour and a half trek on the ice.This is a specially attractive hike because it puts you in direct contact with the glacial ice, the glacier peaks and the interior lagoons of a unique blue color and the spectacular view of the glacier walls and the lake as well.

This tour should be booked in advanced at the tourist agencies.
