#Valparaiso: Hike the Juncal Glaciers with a Local

Hiking from the main entrance of the park to the glacier by a non steep trail, which takes about 4 hours. We will find opportunity for birds and reptiles watching, and eventually foxes and rodents. The valley is surrounded by iconic mountains. On this experience, you will be exposed to the sun (so make sure you get your sun screen) and find yourself at two creeks crossing, one by bridge. It's about 3 hours to make our way back.
