Details of Day Tours

The tour starts with hotel pick-up at 07 AM and after this, we will travel around 45 km by a route that will take us to the rural area from where we can appreciate the wood houses we will find there.

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. It is important to clarify that we will stay there around 6 hours and during this time, we will visit the Museo Costumbrista, located in what used to be an old shearing shed, where they will be introduced to the history of the ranch. Then we will start a short walking tour to visit Caterina River and the Chapel; later we will visit the historic ranch centre. 

Once we have visited the most important points in the ranch, we will have free time for lunch and visit the rest of the area.

Around 05.30 PM, we will go back to the boat ride to go to Punta Bandera and after the disembark, 07 PM approximately, we will return to Calafate hotels.
