What To Expect
Departing from El Calafate we will arrive at the Perito Moreno Glacier. Appreciate the imposing glacier and the height of its massive walls. You will be given the chance to visit the footbridge in front of the glacier. At the Mirador (or footbridge) enjoy a magnificent view of the glacier, an unforgettable moment.
The glacier advances on the waters of the lake, until reaching the opposite shore. The rupture of the glacier is a spectacular process that begins as the glacier advances to the front of the peninsula of Magallanes until forming a natural dike of ice. This formation obstructs the drainage of the water from the Rico Arm to the Channel of the Tempanos.
As the waters of the Rio Arm exert pressure on the wall of the glacier a tube of ice is formed that allows for water flow between the basins and lakes again.
Finally this tunnel collapses. This event can last from 1 to 2 days and offers a spectacular show of singular beauty. Once it is complete, two basins obstruct the channel and the whole process begins again.
