  • Pickup / Dropoff: Place to be defined in Villa O'Higgins

What you will visit:

  • 1 Carretera Austral Sur
  • 2 Villa O'Higgins
  • 3 O'Higgins Glacier

We will meet at a place to be designated in Villa O'Higgins, where a vehicle will be waiting for us to take us to Bahia Bahamondes. From there we will sail towards the base of the Southern Ice Fields in the well-equipped L/M Quetru ship, crossing the vast lake of Los Glaciares (Lake O'Higgins) and entering the imposing Great Glacier (O'Higgins), with its front of 3 km of extension and its walls of 80 m of height.

As we live this tour we will admire the beauty of a breathtaking landscape, the least explored of Patagonia, which owes its physiognomy to the passage of glaciers. Along with observing the impressive mountains with millenary ice that surrounds the lake, we will feel the force of the cold wind on the face, which usually runs in these places where the weather conditions usually vary more than once in the journey, from the burning sun to heavy rains from one moment to another
