El Calafate. Breakfast. We begin our journey to Puerto de la Cruz in Punta Bandera (Flag Point). We board a catamaran and enter the Northern arm of Lago Argentino and sail between icebergs to arrive at the leading edge of the Upsala glacier. Later we will travel up the Onelli channel, disembark in Onelli Bay where we walk through a typical Patagonian Andean forest to arrive at Onelli Lagoon, the confluence of the Onelli, Bolado and Agassiz glaciers. As a result of frequent collapses the lagoon is filled with small icebergs which make this one of the most beautiful landscapes in Patagonian Argentina. Returning to the catamaran we continue to the Upsala Glacier. In the event that conditions do not permit entrance to the area of Onelli, we’ll sail the Spegazzini channel to see the Seco, Spegazzini and Heim South glaciers. Late in the afternoon we return to Punta Bandera and board the waiting buses for our hotel. Accommodation.
El Calafate. Breakfast. We will leave the village and head towards the Los Glaciares National Park, declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. The massive glaciers that give the park its name create a prehistoric landscape of 10,000 years ago, cold and wild. The most famous glacier is Perito Moreno, located in the extreme South of Lago Argentino, is one of the few in the World which is advancing and has become one of the greatest natural spectacles on the planet. Every few minutes the front of the glacier collapses and building sized chunks of ice fall into the waters of Brazo Rico and the Témpanos channel, later to continue on to the main waters of the lake. From the viewpoints you will see walkways which run from Brazo Rico to the Témpanos channel offering different views of the Moreno glacier for you to enjoy.
