Details of Day Tours

We will start our tour picking up passengers from hotels in Puerto Tranquilo to Lago General Carrera, traveling 52 km west through Valle Exploradores. This journey will take us approximately 90 minutes. 

Once we arrive at Valle Exploradores, we will prepare all the technical equipment and receive an introductory talk given by our specialist guides, who will accompany us at all times.

We will start our hike through a perennial forest, where we will be able to recognize diverse native species and observe some birds. Little by little we will ascend through the frontal moraine of the glacier until we reach a viewpoint, where we will be able to obtain a panoramic view from the top of the glacier, Mount San Valentín and Lake Bayo.

We will continue down the moraine and from here we will start walking on ice covered with stones and sand. Once we reach the clean ice (in approximately 1.5 or 2 hours, depending on the conditions of the group) we will take a snack and put on the equipment to start walking safely on the white ice.

Here begins the most fun part of the trek: we will be able to see, feel and listen to the live ice while we walk on it, look inside the ice caves, enjoy and get excited with the blue of its millenary pure waters, and learn more about how the glacier goes down the Ice Field to transform itself into a river that reaches the sea. 

Once our tour is over, we will return to Valle Exploradores to take the transfer and return to Puerto Río Tranquilo.
