This is a great opportunity to see all the most beautiful glaciers, like Upsala and Spegazzini, and to have lunch amidst this stunning landscape.
What to Expect
Transfer from the hotels in El Calafate to Paraje Punta Bandera. The trip starts aboard Leal Cruise towards the northwest, crossing Punta Avellaneda and Boca del Diablo, the narrowest passage in the lake (almost 800 meters). After two hours of sailing, a series of ice floes of the most varied colors and shapes will convey the proximity of Upsala glacier. 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, you'll observe the Upsala glaciers from the distance.
Continue on to Lago Argentino towards the South, taking the Canal Spegazzini in order to reach the glacier that bears the same name. The boat allows you to get closer to the glacier, which has front walls of between 80 and 135 meters above lake level. Lunch is served amidst this stunning landscape. Towards the afternoon, the Crucero Leal 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 a nice walk coordinated by the guides. In this stop, it is possible to see stunning panoramic views of the Spegazzini glacier. Once onboard, you'll return through Brazo Norte and get back to the boarding dock La Soledad.
