Los Glaciares NP Argentina
After an early morning breakfast and bus journey from your hotel, you will be treated to the incredible sight of the towering 60m high walls of the Perito Morento glacier. This excursion takes you on a cruise across Lake Rico. Reaching the Icebergs Channel, the boat will stop at a safe distance from the glacier, continuing to sail across all its face, allowing a spectacular view of the imposing wall of ice. Embarkment takes place at the “Bajo de las Sombras” bay, about 6 km before the glacier Balconies, The excursion lasts approximately one hour and provides an interesting perspective on what is both a beautiful and very tragic natural phenomenon - the falling of the glacial ice into the lake. This is a unique opportunity for photographers and nature lovers alike.
After the boat ride we continue to the footbridges area of the lake and have a break to soak up the astounding surroundings. The bridges provide another interesting perspective on the glacier, and also allow to hear the powerful cracks in this living mass of ice. After this experience you will be transferred back to the hotel in Calafate, pick up your baggage and be taken to the airport for departure.
