5 To the land of glaciers

This morning depart for El Calafate, a quaint town surrounded by small farms and crystalline lagoons, which serves as the gateway to the impressive Glaciers National Park. The park protects a vast area covered by glacier tongues coming down from the Southern Patagonia Ice Cap. The 47 plus glaciers flow into the Argentino and Viedma Lakes creating a magnificent backdrop of ice tongues and turquoise water lakes crowned by snow-capped mountains. The rest of the day is free to walk around the town or head out on a horseback riding excursion.

6 Perito Moreno: The unstoppable giant

The sight of a living glacier is an unforgettable experience very few people will ever witness. Perito Moreno, one of the most charismatic symbols of Patagonia, has been “crawling” for thousands of years along the shores of magnificent Lake Argentino. The glacier is constantly growing and at any time during the year offers the breathtaking spectacle of the calving of huge chunks of ice that plunge into the waters of the lake with a thunderous splash. In the company of our expert guide, you will walk along special walkways on the peninsula, which afford frontal views and fabulous photo opportunities of the advancing giant.

7 Upsala, king of the glaciers

Early this morning, our guide will pick you up at your hotel and transfer you to Puerto Bandera, on the shores of the lake. Once there, you will board a catamaran and start navigating towards Upsala, the largest of the 13 glaciers that make up Los Glaciares National Park. You will sail along huge blocks of ice floating adrift, a clear indicator that you are very close to your final destination. Finally reach the walls of the glacier, an endless mass of ice of an intense white color that reaches out to the line of the horizon. After some time at the glacier, the boat heads for Cristina Bay, where you will disembark and depart on Unimogs (special vehicles) towards the Upsala Lookout Point for an outstanding view of the bay. Return to Estancia Cristina, an Argentinean traditional ranch, where you will be treated to a succulent lunch featuring Patagonian lamb barbecue, home made breads and other local specialties. After lunch, an optional walk around the area will unveil the history and legends of the British pioneers and the hardships they had to endure in this inhospitable land at the beginning of the 20th century. In the evening, board the catamaran and return to El Calafate in reverse order.
