Details of Day Tours

The tour will start with hotel central pick-ups to go to Punta Bandera Port, where will board a modern boat that will take us to the ranch and make the tour there. Once we get there, 4x4 vehicles will be waiting for us to start the 9,5 km tour through the Cordón Feruglio, a mountain road that used to be hidden because of the glaciers. During this trip, we will enjoy the geological landscapes until we arrive at the Continental Ice Shelter. From there, we will make a 20 minutes walking tour to arrive at Upsala Point of View, located 550 meters high, from where we will appreciate Lago Guillermo, Upsala Glacier Oriental Front, South Patagonian Ice and Murallón and Don Bosco Hills

After this, we will start another trek to descend to fossil canyon, an area where you will observe fossil concentration, vestige of the last marine entrance and that have been exposed by the glacial action.

Finally we will visit the last part to get to Cristina Ranch Valley, from where we will get back to the boat and go to Punta Bandera Port. Once we arrive there, we will return to central hotels in Calafate.
