Transfer to Punta Bandera (45 min).
Board your 5-hour cruise to the Upsala and Spegazzini glaciers located inside Los Glaciares National Park. '37 miles (60 km) long, 3 miles (5 km) wide and 230 feet (70 metres) tall, the Upsala glacier is the largest in this park and the longest in South America as its ice spreads over 300 square miles (780 km²).
On your way to the Spegazzini glacier, enjoy the views of the Onelli and Agassi glaciers and the occasional iceberg. The access to Upsala glacier is often limited because of the amount of ice on the passage, as result of glacier melting. Arrival at the Spegazzini glacier with its impressive wall towering up 135 metres (440 feet).
At the end of your cruise, your private driver and guide will be waiting to take you to the Argentino Lake (the largest freshwater lake of the country) on your way to Los Glaciares National Park (90 min).
Arrival at Perito Moreno glacier, named after the Argentinian explorer Francisco Moreno Pascacio.
Easy hike on the boardwalk to get different views of the 18 mile-long (30 km), 3-mile wide (5 km) Perito Moreno glacier. Get your camera ready and listen for the roaring glacier dropping blocks of ice causing mini-tsunamis in their fall.
