Departing from El Calafate up to Bajo la Sombra port, 8 km before the Perito Moreno Glacier where we embark to cross the Brazo Rico del Lago and we disembark at the opposite shore after 20 minutes navigation. Then we reach a shelter where the guides organize groups up to 20 people.
The walking begins when we reach the glacier where the guides fit crampons on our shoes.
Walking on the glacier takes almost 1 and a half hour during which crevasses, seracs, drains and small lagoons can be observed. Hike is not so hard on an irregular but firm and secure ice surface.
Afterwards, you return to the Puerto Bajo las Sombras and visit the walkways located at the front of the glacier, where you can have a different perspective of the landscape from the famous balconies of Perito Moreno.
