Itinerary

Itinerary Ice Hike

The first part of the trip involves taking a speedboat to the Nunatak island, where we can begin to hike for an hour to access the glacier safely.

After hiking on the Nunatak island, the guide will help you adjust your ice axe, crampons, helmet and harness correctly.

Once the clients are ready we can begin this incredible adventure, hiking on the Grey glacier for around two and a half hours, observing crevasses, rivers, lagoons, tunnels and peculiar ice caves.

This walk requires being in good physical condition.

 

Option 2: Touching The Ice                        Price: $ 55,000 (85 USD)

This is a shorter and less demanding version than the ice walk, which allows you to make contact with the Grey Glacier.

This tour takes 3 hours, also with two daily departures.

The first part is done in zodiac for approximately 20 minutes from our base camp Grey with the aim of approaching the island called Nunatak. When arriving at this island the passengers will walk about an hour on rock and thus be able to arrive at a set with a complete view to the Grey Glacier.

The guide in charge of this excursion is a geologist who will soak in the attractive formation and processes of glaciers. When you arrive at the viewpoint you will have time to take pictures if you wish and you will be given a snack with a hot drink to recharge your batteries and start the descent again to the zodiac and then to the base, sailing another 20 minutes.

Includes: Walking stick – Snack.
