THIS TOUR IT DOESN'T INCLUDE ICE TREKING

 

During this excursion you will learn the history of the largest glacier in Argentina and its behavior over the past 10 years, during which it has shown a constant and drastic retreat. You will witness the noticeable erosion of the ice over the rocks and the visible results. You will capture extraordinary views of the glacier from different points, on a journey along natural trails. This is such an ideal excursion to share with family and friends.

Only 17 Km. to the South of El Chaltén you will find the small and picturesque Bahía Túnel harbor, located in a natural protected bay, a few hundred meters away from the delta formed by the Túnel River.

You will sail South across the bay. The lake’s depth allows for a pleasant cruise near the shoreline, permitting the observation of the mountains Fitz Roy and Huemul.

Approximately after 1-hour navigation, during which you will observe large icebergs, you will disembark on a rocky promontory area to start trekking.

The trekking on the promontory area will allow you to appreciate the history of the glaciations, the movement of large ice blocks smoothing the rocks, and to acknowledge nature as the main modeler of the landscape that you enjoy today. This promontory area is a terrain rarely seen and it is the ideal point for the Glaciology talks offered by our guides.

During this journey you will approach the glacier to observe it from different heights and natural viewpoints, appreciating its immensity and the play of colors.
