Once we get to Punta Bandera Port, in Lago Argentino, we will make a boat ride around 08.15 AM. We will cross the high ice floes and navigate the north arm of the Lago Argentino to get into the navigation limit allowed in Upsala Channel and have from there a beautiful front panoramic view of this glacier. We will continue by the Cristina Channel till the disembark point in the ranch, where we will arrive around 11:30 AM.

Then, 4x4 vehicles, equipped specially for this kind of land, will be waiting for us to start the 9,5 journey through the Cordon Feruglio, mountain road, which was covered by glacier until not long ago.During the trip, we will enjoy the geological landscape until we get to the Continental Ice Shelter.
