Full Day Glaciers Cruise from El Calafate

This tour is essential to learn about the wonderful glaciers that surround the National Park, because it is the only one that takes us to the two most important glaciers: Upsala and Spegazzini, to which it would be impossible to reach otherwise. The navigation lasts approximately 5 hours which we can enjoy amazing views from the terrace and balconies of the boat, or we can be comfortably seated inside the boat.

The boats have a capacity between 200 and 300 passengers and the VIP lounges vary between 16 and 30 places depending on the boat.
