Departing from El Calafate, we will arrive at the entrance of Los Glaciares National Park and start our visit of the famous Perito Moreno Glacier. Here you can appreciate the imposing glacier and the height of its massive walls. You will embark on a boat that will take you closer to the impressive Perito Moreno south Wall and will be able to admire the glacier for 45 minutes from the water.

After this nautical safari, 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.
