Depart from Puerto Bajo de la Sombra by navigating the Brazo Rico, and pass in front of the wall of the Perito Moreno Glacier. Appreciate the imposing glacier and the height of its massive walls. At the footbridge (mirador), enjoy a magnificent view of the glacier. During the tour, we will take a 45-minuyr boat trip towards the Channel of Icebergs and wall of the glacier.

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 it forms into a natural dike of ice. This formation obstructs the drainage of the water from the Brazo Rico to the Channel of the Tempanos.

As the waters of the Brazo Rio 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.

Wow. Tour pick up and drop off was efficient and on time. Guide was lovely and catered for Spanish and English speakers well. Both the boat trip and walkways in the National park where you see this amazing spectacle were great. Stops for photo opportunities also along the way. My advice is to take food. There were lots of groups having picnics even wine on the 'balconies' on the walkways where you can sit!

O problema com todos os passeios foio que ao chegar nas cidades você não sabe com qual empresa fará o passeio, tem que fazer um a verdadeira peregrinação pelas agências para procurar com que fará o passeio. Isso foi muito desagradável e perdemos umas 3 horas em cada cidade para verificar isso.
