Full-day Los Glaciares National Park Cruise from El Calafate with Gourmet Lunch
Marvel at the vast glaciers, snow-capped mountains, and glittering lakes of the Los Glaciares National Park on this full-day cruise from El Calafate. Cruise past the Spegazzini Glacier, walk through the ice fields at Puesto de las Vacas, and dine on a gourmet 4-course lunch served on-board (included). Round-trip transfers from El Calafate are included.
Your tour begins with pickup from your El Calafate hotel around 7:15am and a transfer to Puerto Bandera to board your cruise ship. Traveling aboard a modern cruise ship with space for up to 28 passengers, set sail along the Upsala channel into the heart of the Los Glaciares National Park. Keep your camera to hand as you cross the dramatic iceberg barrier, enjoy spectacular views of the Spegazzini glacier, the park's largest glacier, and pass by a stunning panorama of snowy mountains, glittering glacial lakes, and wild forests.
After tucking into a delicious 4-course lunch on-board (see sample menu below), continue to Puesto de las Vacas, where you'll disembark for a short guided walk through the ice fields.
