    This full-day sailing excursion offers the most exclusive service of Los Glaciares National Park, furrowing the waters of Lake Argentino on board the modern 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, also offering a walk through the forest in the Spegazzini Canal and food on board.

    The boat has capacity for 200 passengers distributed in two rooms (one located on the main deck with capacity for 180 passengers and another one on the first deck with capacity for 20 passengers) 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 boat. The standard room offers a gourmet lunch box to the passengers. The great virtue of the cruise are the four exterior sun decks that allows you to comfortably contemplate the majesty of the landscapes.

    This option called "Gourmet Glaciers Experience" proposes sailing the waters of Lake Argentino in front of over 50 meters high walls, ancient deep blue ice and majestic icebergs, allowing you to enjoy nature in all its magnitude. One aspect that differences this tour from other similars is that it includes food on board (gourmet lunch box in the Standard room or a 4-step menu in the Premium room), a 1-hour walk in the forest within the Canal Spegazzini and the visit to the Upsala, Spegazzini and Perito Moreno glaciers in the same day.

    If the tour is booked with transfer from your hotel, we will drive you to Puerto Bandera located at 50 km from the city. There, the sailing begins 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 are mute and takes places an interesting walk coordinated by the guide. Once back on the boat, sailing is undertaken heading to the Perito Moreno Glacier, offering lunch during the journey. After visiting this third glacier, you return to private Port La Soledad in Punta Bandera.

    If you have booked the Minitrekking or Perito Moreno runways tour, this activity is an excellent complement since you will see a different face of this glacier.
