We will pick you up at your hotel in El Calafate to start the tour, travelling around 45 km along a route through the countryside. On the way, we can appreciate picturesque wooden houses.

Once we reach the port of Punta Bandera, on Lake Argentino, we will board a modern and comfortable boat that leaves at 8.15 am. Sailing through towering icebergs we head to the northern arm of Lake Argentino, where we can see the western front of the Spegazzini Glacier, with its amazing 40 m tall walls, and a beautiful scenery as a backdrop.

Continue sailing through the Cristina Canal up to the Estancia, where we arrive around 11:30 am. We will stay there for six hours, during which we can visit its facilities, for instance, the Folkloric Museum, located in what used to be an old shearing shed, to know more about the Estancia’s history.

Then we start a small and pleasant walk of about 30 minutes to visit the Caterina River and Chapel and then tour the historic town of Estancia. Once we have visited the most important spots, you can enjoy free time for lunch and continue touring the place.

Around 05.30 PM we will get back to the boat to begin the return trip to Puerto Punta Bandera. After landing, at approximately 07 pm, we will take you back to your hotel
