Overview
Lago Argentino’s glaciers are some the world’s most impressive natural sights, so it’s worth ensuring the best viewing opportunities. This boat trip from El Calafate delivers unobstructed views from the water, maximizing your photo ops. Absorb the scenery as you sail between the lake’s icebergs; get near to the Spegazzini and Upsala glaciers; and learn about the glaciers from your guide—another bonus. Lunch and downtown hotel transfers are included.
