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

What sets this excursion apart from other similar ones is that in addition to disembarking in the forest inside the Spegazzini Channel and visiting the Upsala, Spegazzini and Perito Moreno glaciers in the same day, you can add the descent on the balconies of the Perito Moreno Glacier, being the most complete tour in El Calafate.

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 travelers who seek personalized attention and excellent service 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 and 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 navigation is undertaken towards the Perito Moreno Glacier while the gourmet lunch on board or the gourmet lunchbox is offered to those who have included these services. After visiting this third glacier, you return to port Punta Bandera to then head back to your hotel in El Calafate.

Gourmet Glaciers proposes to navigate the waters of Lake Argentino and navigate in front of thousand-year-old deep blue ice and majestic icebergs while enjoying Patagonian nature in all its magnitude.
