Your experience


  • Experience a unique journey across Argentina's largest lake through the wonderful ice landscape
  • Get to know the beautiful glaciers that surround the national park
  • Enjoy a breathtaking view from the terrace and balconies of the boat onto the Upsala and Spegazzini glaciers, which otherwise would not be accessible


Around 8:30 am you will be picked up at your hotel and the 50 kilometre journey to Punta Bandera can begin, where your boat will leave at 10:30 am. During the cruise you will sail along the shores of Lake Argentino and continue towards Punta Bandera Port, where you will board a modern catamaran.

The first part of the excursion is located in the northern arm of Lake Argentino over the Boca del Diablo, the narrowest part of the lake, followed by the Upsala Canal and the Spegazzini Canal, where you can see the glaciers of the same name at the end of each canal.

Sail between spectacular icebergs of immense size and different shapes and discover from the boat the Upsala and Spegazzini glaciers, the largest and highest of all the glaciers in the National Park.

The catamaran will sail around them so that you have the opportunity to take excellent pictures of the glaciers and admire them.

Experience a comfortable trip on the catamaran and enjoy a warm breakfast (not included in the price) while admiring the fascinating landscape.
