You will begin your tour to El Calafate taking off from Buenos Aires airport. Once you land in El Calafate a tourist guide from ATN Travel Services will be waiting for you with a sign with your last name on it to transfer you to your hotel in El Calafate, where you can check in and enjoy free time in the afternoon.
Breakfast in the hotel and departure for the full day tour entitled «Perito Moreno Glacier and Nautical Safari». On the tour, you will visit one of the greatest marvels of the world: the Perito Moreno Glacier, declared a World Heritage.
You will begin the tour by going to the floating quay of the southern branch of the Argentinean Lake, where you will ride across the Ice Floe Canal up to the front of the Perito Moreno Glacier to see its typical ice slides. Then, you will come across the footbridges which are very near to the ice wall. There will be enough time for you to enjoy the glacier spectacle, and also be witness to the famous ice detachment phenomena, in which you can hear the hollow sounds of ice falling and thus becoming smaller floating glaciers. There are some experiences that leave marks in our lives, and watching the Perito Moreno is definitely one of them.
You will have breakfast in the hotel and after that our tour guide will pick you up to take you on the full day tour entitled “Rio de Hielos Express.” At the beginning of the tour, you will head to Punta Bandera pier to take a catamaran trip on the Argentine Lake. First, you will visit the northern part of the lake where you can observe the amazing icebergs floating adrift, and then you will see the fantastic Upsala Glacier where you will meet a spectacular Ice Barrier whose area of 800 square kilometers is equal to 4 times the City of Buenos Aires! After you pass the front wall of this glacier, the ride continues to see the highest Glacier in the National Park, the Spegazzini Glacier, where you also can observe the dry glacier and finally you will return through the Boca de diablo (Devil’s Mouth), which is the narrowest part of the lake . After this awesome boat trip, you will never forget El Calafate town and the Patagonia region. Fortunately, your films and photos will always remind you that it wasn’t a dream and that you certainly were there.
Note: The tour can be modified depending on weather conditions and on the captain of the vessel’s decision.
Breakfast and at scheduled time, transfer from hotel to airport to take a flight back to Buenos Aires. End of the El Calafate, Perito Moreno Glacier tour.
