Departure from your hotel on this adventure. Once on the port, we start sailing through the Canal de los Témpanos to then enter Mayo Branch of Argentino Lake. The glaciers of Cerro Mayo and Cerro Negro can only be observed from the water. We disembark at Toro Bay accompanied by our guide, where we take an interpretative walk to observe the Patagonian Andean forest. We visit a waterfall. From the shore of the lake, we will be able to observe the hanging glaciers of Cerro Mayo and Cerro Negro. After a second navigation, we disembark in Cerro Negro, together with the guide, we begin a walk of about 1,000 meters, entering the forest to the base of Cerro Negro, from where we can see the wonderful Negro Glacier. From this 'hanging' glacier on the slope of the hill a large number of waterfalls are born, which give rise to the river that we are bordering on the way there and back. Then we move to the most famous glacier in Patagonia, the Perito Moreno. Unique for its beauty and imposing. We make an unmissable navigation that goes along its northern front and the area of the rupture. Finally, we disembark at Puerto Moreno and walk along the walkways. We return to the ship and start our way back to the port of Punta Bandera.
