Nautical walkway

It is one of the traditional excursions to get to know the Perito Moreno glacier. The beauty is infinite and the sunset lights make it even more spectacular.

The walkways allow you to have a privileged view of the glacier Perito Moreno. Its comfortable and versatile system is an incentive to walk, explore and enjoy them in full, in front of the imposing natural wonder of the walls of the ice tongue. This is one of the traditional excursions in the land of glaciers.

The walk starts at the door of the accommodation. The transfer through Route 11, which borders the southern bank of Lake Argentino from El Calafate to the Port Under the Shadows, is enriched with the descriptions of the professional guides. As an introduction, with mountain ousties and Magellanic forests as a backdrop, you will know all aspects of the lake and the Los Glaciares National Park.

It´s a visit that takes several hours and usually starts in the morning. Hielo & Aventura proposes a sunset outing, to have a different experience with the golden lights of the afternoon. From the port, passengers embark on the comfortable catamarans to start the nautical safari, sailing the Rico arm of Lake Argentino. It is there that the glacier moves like a giant colosso until it closes the passage of water in the Canal de los Témpanos to start a new cycle of compression and then rupture, the great rupture that happens every so many years and summons tourists from all over the world.
