Our Top Experiences and Tours in Argentina:
If youʻre booking your trip to Argentina last minute, we have you covered. Below are some of the top tours and experiences!


  • Enjoy a boat trip and spot glaciers
  • Hike to the base of Vespignani Glacier
  • Discover amazing views of Mount Fitz Roy
  • Learn about the history of this natural place with a specialized guide
  • Enjoy a hot beverage inside a dome in the woods


Start your trip with a pick-up from your hotel, and pass through woodlands and back roads bordering the blue waters of Rio Las Vueltas during the 23 miles to Lago del Desierto. Upon arrival at Punta Sur, embark on a 30 minutes sail through Lago del Desierto to reach Punta Norte. On the way, spot the amazing Huemul and Creston glaciers, and snap your best shot. After sailing, disembark in the Vespignani Glacier Reserve. Once there, under the supervision for your safety, you will have 4 hours to choose to walk all or one of the four perfectly signposted trails in the area depending on the difficulty and effort you wish to make. You can choose a 2 hours hike to the natural balcony called ¨Mirada del Doctor¨ to be astonished by the majestuosity of the Glacier, this is the most demanding trail. Or you can go on a 45-minute uneven hike to the foot of the Vespignani glacier, promising incredible views of the northern face of Mount Fitz Roy, an intermediate option that takes 30 minutes, ending in a panoramic viewpoint overlooking the glacier. Or choose a soft trek in an entirely flat trail where you can wander the forest and the coastline. Regardless of your choice, your tour guide will be there to assist. End the day by enjoying an energizing snack from within a dome in the woods before embarking again for the bus back to El Chaltén.
