Land transfer from the Hotel to Puerto Bandera, boarding place. We begin our excursion in Puerto de Punta Bandera, 47 km (29 miles) from El Calafate, navigating the north arm of Lake Argentino. Sail to pass through Boca del Diablo, in the direction of the Upsala Canal, to travel among the large ice floes that fall from the front wall of the Upsala Glacier. Our next destination will be the Spegazzini Canal, and then we will enjoy the view of the Dry Glacier for the first time. Our journey will continue until we have the Spegazzini glacier in front of us, where we will also enjoy the views of the Heim Sur and Peineta glaciers. We prepare to disembark at the Spegazzini Base, to begin our visit of this area walking along a forest path to reach the Spegazzini Refuge. This accessible 300-meter path will take us to different stations and viewpoints that cover the entire Bay of Los Glaciares. We can have lunch in the refuge, visit the store or enjoy the beautiful scenery. Those who like trekking can follow the path to the mountain. This is a multimedia difficulty trekking route that crosses a wooded path, full of natural views and incredible views, which ends at the landing point.
