Exploring Viedma Glacier in Chalten; is an unforgettable experience for hikers of all different skill levels; After sailing across the beautiful Lake Viedma, you’ll head towards the impressive glacial structure. Many visitors report that it’s the first experience they’ve had climbing or trekking on top of a foundation made entirely of ice. However, the majority of these first-timers find the trail to be very easily navigable.
