Description

Discover the stunning landscapes of Argentino Lake and its scenic glaciers on this guided cruise. Bring your camera to snap photos of the gigantic ice masses as you sail along the lake's northern arm and pass by the Upsala, Spegazzini, and Seco glaciers.

After pickup from your hotel in El Calafate, set off to the port of Punta Bandera where you board the boat. As your cruise begins, make your way to Upsala Canal, known for the awe-inspiring Icebergs Barrier. Soon you spot the impressive pinnacles of the Upsala Glacier, named after a Swedish university which sponsored the first studies in the area.

Next proceed to the Spegazzini Canal to see the Seco Glacier, nicknamed the Dry Glacier, characterized by the strip of land beneath it that was once covered by ice. Marvel at towering Spegazzini Glacier, the region's highest iceberg, reaching an altitude of 443 feet (135 m). After admiring this massive mountain of ice, continue to the Iceberg Canal and navigate back to Punta Bandera.
