Early in the morning you’ll begin your journey to Los Glaciares National Park to see the Perito Moreno Glacier from a different perspective. You’ll get to know the ‘King of the Glaciers’ at sea level. This peculiar glacier owes its fame to a very unique quality; it is one of the largest and best preserved glaciers in the world thanks to a cyclical phenomenon of growth and regression. This mass of ice is one of the few glaciers in the world that is still advancing, and is also known for its breathtaking beauty.

Upon arrival, you will have the opportunity to take a moment to enjoy the sights and sounds from the different viewpoints. Walk along the walkways that surround it to appreciate its immensity from its different angles. Then, you’ll head to the meeting point to begin your kayak experience.

Once prepared, you’ll set sail from Los Témpanos beach to begin your approach towards the glacier from the water. You’ll paddle parallel to the north wall, reaching a maximum proximity of 600 meters away from it, while you enjoy the environment and the impressive landscape around you.
