Highlights of Patagonia Argentina Glaciers - Ríos De Hielo Boat Ride

This tour is essential to learn about the wonderful glaciers that surround the National Park, because it is the only one that takes us to the two most important glaciers: Upsala and Spegazzini, to which it would be impossible to reach otherwise. 

The navigation lasts approximately 5 hours during which we can enjoy amazing views from the terrace and balconies of the boat, or we can be comfortably seated inside the boat.

Optional: Upgrade your tour to a VIP Navigation where you will travel in a small cabin for only 18 passengers located on top of the boat
