The essence of a Glacier Grey excursion
Prepare to be captivated as you enjoy a half-day excursion to the Grey Peninsula, in a 4×4 Jeep. Be enchanted as local birds serenade you as you stroll through a magical forest of lenga trees, down to the Grey Beach. As you approach, stand in awe of the majestic icebergs that have floated down from the nearby Grey Glacier. Swept along by the strong winds that are characteristic of the area, you can walk until you’re facing the peninsula and appreciate the magnificent view.
Part of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field, Grey Glacier is the world’s second largest contiguous ice field outside of the poles. You can hike the edge of the lake for stunning views of it and the many icebergs that had been calved from it or you can experience an unforgettable boat journey across Grey Lake. Sailing next to the glittering wall of ice is beyond spectacular and from this exclusive vantage point you will be able to fully appreciate the puzzle of turquoise, blue, white and crystal clear ice that forms this awe-inspiring glacier and free floating icebergs that pass by.
What is extraordinary is the brilliant blue hue that radiates from within the glacier. Watch the stunning sight of these geometric floating gems changing colour as the shadows and light shift. Be absorbed by the sheer beauty of this stunning sight.
Ice hike over Grey Glacier – the ice hike takes approximately 5 hours, incl. rubber boat transfer, walking onto the Nunatak Island to access the ice the safest way, in groups from 3 to 12 people.
Walk to Lake Grey Peninsula – easy half-day walk to through a lush forest of beech, followed by the Lake Grey beach and peninsula. View of the Grey Glacier and icebergs along the shore.
