The ice climbing excursion with patagonia adventures is the real deal! we scaled over rocks on the promontory leading down to the glacier and spent an incredible day (the fact that the sun was bright and shiny and the temps warm added to the experience) with pablo on the glacier. pablo was funny, knowledgeable, and very encouraging and patient. we...

They are the only one to operate on the Viedma glacier. The glacier is far to be as beautiful as the Perito Moreno, however the experience seems much more "authentic". I went there during high season and only max 40 people on the glacier (if you go to Perito you will feel the difference). I decided to go for the... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We were lucky with the weather - fine & sunny although the wind did get up later in the day. You need to be a bit nimble hiking on the ice amongst the crevasses. After lunch we had ago at ice climbing, would recommend everyone having a go. After that we were served Tia Maria &... More

There are, in our opinion, three great reasons to go to El Chalten: 1) To do technical climbing on Mt. Fitz Roy, etc.; 2) To do serious mountain trekking in these beautiful mountains of the Argentinian Andes; 3) To see and/or photograph Mt. Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre. If one simply wants to see a glacier up close, to take... More

This was already known the day before (I had been adviced on it by my trekking guide). I went to the company which told me they probably maintain the excusion - what they did. As... More

The adventure was recommended and organised by Walk Patagonia in El Chalten. Had great weather with a pleasant cruise across the lake to the starting point of the walk. An interesting short walk across a spectacular glacier worn rock to the glacier edge we we were fitted with ice grippers and instructed how to use them. The walk covered spectacular... More

The glacier was not like how I expected, instead of all white and blue it was all black and brown due to rocks. However our guides did a splendid job, they made sure everybody was safe and enjoying the trekking on the ice.

Thanks a lot for your comments Nature is what counts on that details, and the colour of ice only depends on the way light goes inside it! (consider that Ice, like water, is transparent!). Volvanic ashes make some areas of the ice surface black, grey and kind of dirtry but when you know where all these ashes come from......., you... More
