This glacier is gorgeous and a moderate hike to get to. Even touched a piece of floating ice! Worth the trip to see this.

A scenic boat ride past cormorants, sea lions, and condors will get you here. A mile walk over uneven terrain will bring you to the base of the Cerrano glacier or you can view it from a distance. Nice views. Quite peaceful

Sorry, we didn't go hiking on this glacier. We walked along the beach. Got to the location by renting a vehicle and driving there ourselves. Wish I could be of more help
