Know More about this tour

We will pick you up around 07:00 Am and will undertake the journey of 50 Km to Punta Bandera, where the boat departs at 09 am. We will pass by the edge of the main body of Argentino lake and move on towards Punta Bandera Port, where we will get on a modern catamaran.

The first part of the excursion is in the northern arm of Lake Argentino across the Boca del Diablo, the narrowest part of the lake, then you will go to the Upsala channel and the Spegazzini channel where you are able to see, at the end of each channel, the glaciers with the same name. The navigation runs between spectacular icebergs of immense size and varied forms. From the boat you will see, among others, the Upsala and the Spegazzini glaciers, the largest and highest respectively among all glaciers in the park.

The catamaran will navigate in circles in order to let everybody take excellent pictures of the glaciers. Also, we will be able to sit inside this confortable ship where we can enjoy a warm breakfast (not included).

After 5 hours of navigation, we will return to the port and then go to El calafate by a land transportation vehicle.

    Viator, you are charging too much for what the actual tour companies are charging including airport transfers.
    I would warn others not to get ripped off.

    This tour uncovers the hidden beauty of Argentina. The 5 hours cruise was a wonderful experience. Had enough time taking pics and videos near the glaciers!!

    The site was very informative on the Overview and Important Information. With these it makes it easier to choose between excursion and to know what needs to be done. Due to safety reasons the ship have to maintain a safety distance from the Glaciers. But even with that, the ship was travelling up and down, circling around in front of it giving everyone a photo opportunity.
