Taking in close-up views of glaciers

Day 1 All Glaciers Navigation

Transfer from El Calafate to Punta Bandera, where you will board your boat. Sail north through Lago Argentino and cross Boca del Diablo to Upsala Channel. Upon entering the channel, sail between large icebergs that have calved from Upsala Glacier. Enter the Spegazzini Channel where you will get your first view of Glaciar Seco. While sailing in front of the Spegazzini Glacier you will be able to see the Heim Sur and Peineta glaciers. Disembark and walk along a 300-meter (1/4 mile) forest path to reach the Spegazzini Refuge. Stop at the different stations and viewpoints overlooking Los Glaciares Bay along the way. For those who would like a bit more challenging option, there is also a mountain path. This 700-meter (1/2 mile) hike passes through a forest and offers several stopping points, full of incredible views. Once in the refuge you'll have time to eat lunch, visit the shop or just take in the landscape.

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).
