The Gourmet Glaciers Experience boat tour offers the most exclusive service in Los Glaciares National Park from El Calafate, furrowing the waters of Lake Argentino on board the Maria Turquesa Cruise and visiting the Upsala, Spegazzini and Perito Moreno glaciers. This is the only boat tour that allows you to visit the three main glaciers of the national park in the same day while offering a trek in the forest in the Spegazzini Canal.

Gourmet Glaciers sails the waters of Lake Argentino in front of over 50 meters high walls, ancient deep blue ice and majestic icebergs, while enjoying nature in all its magnitude. One aspect that differences this tour from other similars is that it includes a 1-hour hike in the forest within the Canal Spegazzini, the visit to the Upsala, Spegazzini and Perito Moreno glaciers in the same day and a 4-step gourmet lunch if the Premium deck optional service is added to the booking.

The boat has 200 passengers capacity distributed in two decks (the main deck with 180 passengers capacity and the upper deck with 16 passengers capacity) and is aimed at those travelers who seek personalized attention and excellent service on board. The boat's Premium lounge is equipped with its own kitchen, toilet and private sun deck and is characterized by offering a four-step tasting menu presented by the chef on board. The great virtue of this cruise are the four exterior sun decks that allow you to comfortably contemplate the majesty of the glaciers and landscapes.

If Gourmet Glaciers is booked with transfer from your hotel in El Calafate, we will pick you up starting at 7:00 a.m. to head towards port Punta Bandera located at 47 km. From there, the boat tour departs towards the iceberg barrier of Canal Upsala to, then, cross it and head towards the Spegazzini Glacier, which is the highest in the national park, where you will disembark in Puesto de las Vacas.

Here, the engines of the Maria Turquesa Cruise are mute and takes places an interesting hike coordinated by the guides. Once back on the boat, the sailing is undertaken heading to the Perito Moreno Glacier while the 4-step lunch will be served at the Premium deck. After visiting this third glacier, you return to port Punta Bandera to then head back to your hotel in El Calafate.

If you have booked the Minitrekking or the Perito Moreno: Balconies tour, the Gourmet Glaciers Experience tour is an excellent complement since you will see a different face of the Perito Moreno Glacier.
