    Always with the help of our mountain guides, you’ll enjoy this natural ice paradise. The trekking difficulty is moderate, the route on the glacier lasts approximately one and a half hours, and in its course, you will be able to appreciate a variety of typical formations of glacier-like cracks, sumps, seracs, lagoons, etc.
    At the end of the walk, you’ll return to the shelter along a walkway crossing the lush Patagonian Andean forest.

There, you’ll enjoy the spectacular panoramic view of the glacier and walk along some of the self-guided paths.
