Starting the tour we will have views of Lake Argentino with its Redonda Bay, located on the right of the route.

In the access the entrance is paid and 40 km will be registered until the parking, place where the route that leads to the footbridges begins. The tour of them is free until the time of reunion. At 146m is the Main Balcony, from where you have an impressive view of the north and south walls of the Glacier.
