This morning transfer to Puerto Bandera where you embark a boat headed to the Upsala Glacier. After a short navigation, cross the Devils throat into the Brazo Norte. Observe different blue colors sailing among icebergs and stunning scenery overlooking the western front of the Upsala glacier. At the extreme of Cristina arm we disembark at Estancia Cristina to enjoy the afternoon. You will have the chance to visit the Costumbrista museum, an old shearing shed with sheering traditions to show. During your time here, ascend in 4x4 vehicles along 9.5 km of mountain roads to the Continental ice shelter. Enjoy a 30 minute walk to one of the most fantastic viewpoints the South Patagonian Ice-field. Here we can spot the oriental front of Upsala Glacier coming down from the field, the Lake Guillermo and the Andean peaks of southern Patagonia. Return back to Estancia Cristina and embark your boat to return to Puerto Bandera and on to El Calafate.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
