All Glaciers: full day navigation

Marpatag: Espíritu de los Glaciares

This tour is suspended until further notice.

This navigation is one of the most important tours that can be made from El Calafate and it is worth spending a day to get to these National Park sites that are accessible only by boat. The tour goes through the Spegazzini, the Upsala and the Perito Moreno glaciers, entering the bays that they form.

In the case of recruiting the tour transportation from your hotel, we will pick you up around 7:30 Am and will undertake the journey of 50 Km to Punta Bandera, where the boat departs at 9 o’clock. In the case of having your own vehicle, you must get to the port of Punta Bandera at 8:30 Am.

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 respective glaciers. The navigation runs between spectacular icebergs of immense size and varied forms. After strolling through the north arm, you will go to the south arm of the lake where is the glacier Perito Moreno. From the boat you will see, among others, the Upsala, the Spegazzini and the Perito Moreno glaciers, the largest and highest respectively among all glaciers in the park. This is one of the most important sailing excursions of area of El Calafate and the National Park as you visit the most spectacular glaciers in the area.

During the season 2009/2010 the Onelli glacier area became unreachable, forcing the boat to take a different route to the southern arm of Lake Argentino and visit the Perito Moreno glacier. Keep in mind that boats have very good heating and you only need to go out on deck in case you want to take pictures.
