Passing an iceberg on our way to Upsala Glacier

Day 1 Upsala Glacier Adventure

  • 1 Lunch
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.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
