Take an unforgettable glacier cruise on the Argentinian Lake, where you'll see the most spectacular glaciers in Patagonia up close. An impressive sight that's sure to leave a lasting impression.
The tour leaves from La Soledad port first thing in the morning. From here we'll begin our cruise taking in the glaciers of the Argentinian Lake.
Our yacht will tour the main points in the Glaciers National Park, first of all, the "Dry Glacier", one that's shrinking, with a spit of land sticking out, vegetation working hard to form a passage among the ice.
The tour then continues, admiring the Heim and Spegazzini Glaciers - the sheer walls of this mass of rock and ice are certainly its most impressive part at 135 metres tall.
Then we'll disembark from the cruise in Puesto de Las Vacas, to enjoy a 40-minute hike where your guide will immerse you in the history and stories of the region: all to the stunning backdrop of the unparalleled Patagonian landscape.
With our walk over, we'll get up close and personal with the Upsala Glacier. With a surface area of 870 square kilometres, it's the third largest glacier in the Southern Hemisphere. From the boat you'll be able to see its incredible expanse of ice, which is even used by the armed forces which are deployed in Antarctica.
Stunned still by this colossal wall of ice, you'll enjoy a delicious lunch on board, before navigating the Canal de los Témpanos, until we get to the north of the Perito Moreno glacier, the cherry on the cake in this captivating excursion on the Patagonian rivers of ice.
Finally, having disembarked again in the La Soledad port at about 5 pm, we'll say goodbye, or accompany you back to your hotel, depending on the option you have reserved.
Hotel Pick Up in El Calafate
If you choose this option, we'll pick you up at your hotel in El Calafate at the indicated time and take you back to it once our excursion to the Glaciers National Park is over. Otherwise, we'll meet at the port of La Soledad.
