The tour starts with hotel pick-ups at 7:00 AM and arrives at the boarding port at 8:20 AM. The approximate return time to the hotel is 5:00 PM. Note: In May and June, hotel pick-ups start at 8:00 AM and the arrival at the boarding port is at 9:20 AM. The approximate return time to the hotel is 6:00 PM. Itinerary: Once on board, passengers will be informed about safety regulations and navigation conditions. The tour takes place on a modern and comfortable state-of-the-art catamaran. First, we'll sail through the North Arm of Lake Argentino, passing through the Devil's Mouth, the natural entrance to the North Arm, until we reach the Upsala Channel, where we'll find a large number of icebergs. The boat will also navigate among the icebergs and make stops to enjoy this wonderful experience. Continuing the navigation, the catamaran will approach the Upsala Glacier for a panoramic view. The approach will be as close as allowed by National Parks for safety reasons. The current view of the glacier is from about 5 km away. Then we enter the Spegazzini Channel and moments later we will have the first view of the Dry Glacier. We continue sailing to the front of the Spegazzini Glacier, the highest in the National Park. The view is impressive and its walls reach 140 meters high, where we will also contemplate the Heim Sur and Peineta glaciers. Spegazzini Base: Viewpoints Lunch with a view of the Spegazzini Glacier We prepare to disembark at Spegazzini Base and begin our visit to the area by walking along the forest trail to the Spegazzini Refuge. This 300-meter trail is accessible and as we walk along it, we will stop at stations and viewpoints with views of the entire Los Glaciares Bay. The site has restrooms. Later, we will return to the departure port. Additional notes: The tour is available in English and Spanish. It is recommended to book your tour in advance, especially during peak season. Please bring warm clothing, sunscreen, and a hat, as the weather can change quickly in the mountains. Food and drinks are available for purchase on board the catamaran.
