Highlights of Glaciers Gourmet Experience

The “Glaciares Gourmet Experience” is an ideal program for all those passengers who want to visit Los Glaciares National Park in an exclusive way.
On board the Maria Turquesa Cruise, we offer personalized attention and an excellent service for the most demanding travelers looking for the best alternative to get to know and closely observe two of the most impressive glaciers in the National Park: the Spegazzini Glacier and the Upsala Glacier.

Through this tour, you will have the opportunity to navigate the waters of Lake Argentino through icebergs, observing walls more than 50 meters high and the Andes Mountains as the background of this unique setting.

This tour also includes a one-hour walk through a Patagonian forest path that will take us to spectacular viewpoints of the Spegazzini Glacier, and a complete lunch on board.

Details of Day Tours

Around 07:30 in the morning, your  guide will pick you up from your hotel in El Calfate and you will head towards the Port la Soledad. 

After approximately one hour drive, we will  arrive at destination and embark at 9:00 a.m. at the company’s own dock “La Soledad” (Bahía Tranquila, Paraje Punta Bandera). 

The navigation starts towards the northwest, crossing Punta Avellaneda and Boca del Diablo, the narrowest passage in the lake with almost 800 meters. After two hours of navigation the series of ice floes, of the most varied colors and shapes, anticipates the proximity of Upsala glacier. We will stop in front of the barrier of ice floes which at present is blocking the entrance to Canal Upsala. If the weather conditions are good we will observe the Upsala glaciers at the distance. 

We continue navigating Lago Argentino towards the South by taking the Canal Spegazzini in order to reach the glacier that bears the same name. The navigation allows us to get closer to the glacier which has front walls between 80 and 135 meters (262 – 443 feet) above lake level. A gourmet lunch box is served amidst this stunning landscape. 

Towards the afternoon, the Cruise will arrive at Puesto de Las Vacas (an extremely quiet bay in the Canal Spegazzini) where its engines will be stopped to let passengers share an amusing walk coordinatedby our team of guides. In this stop it is possible to see stunning panoramic views of the Spegazzini glacier. 

Once onboard, we will return through Brazo Norte and get back to the boarding dock La Soledad at 6:00 p.m, from where we will take you back to your hotel in El Calafate.
