The UNESCO-listed Los Glaciares National Park lies just west of El Calafate and is home to some of Patagonia’s most stunning landscapes. This full-day cruise lets you explore further than you could on foot and affords spectacular views as you sail around Lake Argentino. Along the way, pass by the mighty Upsala glacier and the towering ice wall of the Spegazzini glacier.
