    Ending Point

    You will be dropped back at your hotel


    For your Lago Argentino Boat Trip you will be picked up at your hotel in El Calafate. You should bring a packed lunch with you.

    The excursion starts at Puerto Bandera, approximately 31 miles from El Calafate, and you will head towards the northern branch of Lago Argentino.

    Lago Argentino is the biggest freshwater lake in Argentina and the third largest in South America. As you sail along, observe the strange cloudiness of the lake water. This is due to a suspension of a very fine powder produced by glacier abrasion, called 'glacier milk'.

    From the boat you will get marvellous views of the Upsala, Spegazzini and Onelli glaciers, the three biggest and highest of all glaciers in Los Glaciares National Park.

    On your route you will also see spectacular ice floes – great chunks of frozen water that have broken off the main glaciers of the National Park. Carved by the weather into an array of different shapes, these natural ice sculptures drift gently along the lake and are a major feature of your boat tour.

    In the afternoon, your boat will return to Puerto Bandera and you will then be dropped back at your hotel.

      A good one and cheap option as well, as it saves time spent for buying tickets standing in queue....

    • Interesting experience

      Experienced guide, well-organized trip. Perhaps the car was a bit too tiny for 8 people. Interesting destinations and beautiful views....
