Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web
Hike on Viedma Glacier, part of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field. Flowing into the western end of Lake Viedma, the glacier ends in a cliff rising 40 m (131 ft) over the lake and creating an impressive natural sight. The coloration of the glacier, which appears to be striped black and white, is the result of debris collecting in the ice as it moves across the land. Book a guided walk on the glacier with one of the operators providing specialized gear for glacier hiking, or view it on a boat tour.

  • Excellent panoramo if you visit El Chalten, mostly for take a hike more soft after making a strong trekking. It is a short navigation that leads to the wall of the Viedma glacier. The attention on board is very good and worth the visit.

  • A trip not to be missed. Navigate up to its front is already excellent, disembark, prepare and walking by these ICES is an extraordinary adventure. The blues of these masses of ice are an unimaginable palette.
