Upsala Glacier, El Calafate Reviews

  • Imbarco da Punta Bandera per la navigazione sul lago Argentino. L’imbarcazione è un moderno catamarano e durante la navigazione si può anche stare all’interno e godersi il panorma attraverso le ampie vetrate, ma ovviamente star fuori è molto più bello anche se fa un bel freddo; il vento è gelido e bisogna coprirsi bene. Navighiamo lungo il Brazo Norte del lago e poi il Canal Upsala fino alla lunga lingua di ghiaccio del ghiacciaio Upsala che scende nel lago con 5 km di parete.

  • Cada glaciar tiene su encanto particular y este no deja de ser de una belleza increíble. Durante la navegación pueden apreciarse numerosos témpanos de hielo (icebergs) que se desprenden continuamente del glaciar Upsala y navegan lentamente o colisionan contra las costas. Lamentablemente no se puede llegar demasiado cerca del glaciar por el riesgo que implican los desprendimientos, de cualquier manera, puede apreciarse perfectamente en todo su potencial. Muy recomendable!

  • Visita a glaciares Upsala y Spegazzini, hermoso viaje en catamarán. Dura 5 horas por un recorrido increíblemente hermoso, fascinante...cuenta con un bar y sanitarios. Los guías muy buenos.

  • Hermoso glaciar, una de las maravillas de la Patagonia Argentina. Normalmente se le atribuye la cualidad de ser el glaciar más grande de Sudamérica con sus 800 kilómertros cuadrados. En realidad el más grande es el glaciar Pío XI en la Patagonia Chilena, con 1.250 kilómetros cuadrados y el único en expansión todos los años

  • Imperdible hay que ir a ver estos glaciares y son unicos magicos!
