Full Day Glaciers Cruise from El Calafate
  • 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 site was very informative on the Overview and Important Information. With these it makes it easier to choose between excursion and to know what needs to be done. Due to safety reasons the ship have to maintain a safety distance from the Glaciers. But even with that, the ship was travelling up and down, circling around in front of it giving everyone a photo opportunity.

      Viator, you are charging too much for what the actual tour companies are charging including airport transfers.
      I would warn others not to get ripped off.

        Calificación General: 4/10
