Walk along the catwalks and balconies and take a 1 hour cruise to the glacier
I will pick you up from CALAFATE AIRPORT to start our adventure to Los Glaciares National Park. The distance to the glacier is 80 km along a paved road and the riding time is about 1. 30 hours.
At first the landscape is steppe dry area with small vegetation; we stop by to observe the view of Argentino Lake before accessing the main gate of the national park. Here we'll stop to pay the entrance fees.
After entering to the park the landscape changes dramatically becoming a dense forest with high and small deciduous beech. Besides on the right there is Rich arm of the Argentino Lake and after 21 km we'll do a brief stop to observe the first panoramic view of the glacier.
Then continue to the catwalks and balconies area to check the balconies at different levels and angles in front of the glacier. You will also take a boat trip that get close to the glacier walls.
