Los Glaciares National Park Boat Excursion

11 reviews | 186 travellers
Everything was great, I liked everything. The only thing I didn't like was the photographers who stayed on the boat trying to sell the photos, and competing with the tourists for the spaces.. I want to take my photos, I can't get to the best places, because the beautiful ones are there doing their work. That's what I didn't like about the perfect rest.

Los Glaciares National Park Boat Excursion

Between 7 and 7:30 am, we'll pick you up at your hotel in El Calafate and take National Route 11. From this road, which runs parallel to Lake Argentino, we'll enjoy excellent views of the largest lagoon in Patagonia.

After a 40-minute drive, we'll arrive at the pier of Puerto Bandera, where we'll embark on an unforgettable boat ride to see the glaciers. We'll start this journey by entering the northern arm of Lake Argentino, where we'll cross the so-called Boca del Diablo (Devil's Mouth). While we take in these stunning landscapes, we'll see a large group of icebergs from the boat. Their intense bluish tone is sure to catch your attention!

Our journey will continue on to the great ice barrier, where we'll see the detachments of the Upsala Glacier, the largest in the park. The route will pass next to the Heim, the Peineta, the Seco and the Spegazzini glacier, the highest of them all! We'll then dock in front of this last glacier for a brief low-intensity hike next to Glacier Bay.

The trail will take us to the Spegazzini Refuge, where you can have lunch on your own. After lunch, we'll have an hour free for those who wish to hike a mountain trail of moderate intensity, which will take you up to 1,200 meters above sea level.

Afterward, we'll regroup at the refuge to take the boat back to the pier of Puerto Bandera. From there we'll return to your hotel in El Calafate, where arriving at 5:30 pm.
