Description

Experience the magic of ice trekking on the Neumeyer Glacier!

The Neumeyer Glacier is a 2-kilometer (6,561 feet) long and 1 kilometer (3280 feet) wide glacier located within the Protected Natural Reserve of the Huemules that is constantly changing shape and size. Get ready to be surrounded by towering ice walls as you trek on this spectacular glacier and feel the constant movement beneath your feet and hear the ice cracking and groaning.

We'll set out on our glacier adventure after a warm breakfast at Puesto Cagliere Refuge and a brief overview of the excursion that will include useful advice that will help us make the most out of our expedition. After getting our gear and backpacks ready, we'll embark on the trail.

The first few hours will offer spectacular views of the Cagliero Glacier, nestled among towering peaks**.** Once you reach the end of the valley, we will enter the Via Ferrata area. Here, we will put on our safety gear and continue on our way, gaining altitude and even more impressive views of the valley.

At the end of the Via Ferrata, we will walk through a pristine high-mountain area where you'll be able to feel the immensity and the wild aspect of Patagonia. You will also have a moment to rest and eat your lunch.

Arrive at the glacier, put on your crampons and walk on the ancient Neumeyer Glacier. Contemplate the spectacular views of the Fitz Roy range and the panorama of towering, jagged peaks that pierce the sky.

It is important to note that this trip demands a considerable amount of fitness. Participants should be used to regular aerobic exercise and be able to move through mountain terrain with steep slopes throughout the day. Experience in the use of safety equipment is not essential, as the guide will assist you with putting on the equipment and moving through the Via Ferrata.

If you're up to the challenge and are looking for an unforgettable adventure in Patagonia, then this Neumeyer Glacier trek is for you. Book your tour today and experience the magic of this hidden gem!

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
