El Calafate, Trip to the Grand Glaciers of Patagonia


Upon arrival at El Calafate, reception at the airport and transfer to your hotel.

The Perito Moreno Glacier, El Calafate. Prepare yourself to be amazed by the majesty of this unique glacier. Its size, colors, and sounds will stimulate your senses!

We can organize your pre-trip to Patagonia if you need help! Some previous days in Buenos Aires are perfect to acclimatize and get to know Argentina´s Capital City.


El Calafate is a picturesque village on the southern margin of Lake Argentino in the Andean mountain range; it is the starting point of any exploration of the Glacier’s land of Patagonia. 


Fun facts you should know about Patagonia:


  • Patagonia spans Argentina and Chile, in the southernmost part of South America.

  • It occupies 260,000 square miles in both countries. 

  • The region is known for dramatic mountain peaks, an abundance of glaciers, and an array of unique wildlife.

Be dazzled by the Perito Moreno Glacier 

Today, an unforgettable experience is waiting for you. 

You’ll live the magic of the Perito Moreno Glacier, visiting the Glaciers National Park, located 70 km from El Calafate.  


What makes Perito Moreno Glacier so unique


  • Argentina’s Perito Moreno Glacier contains the world's third-largest reserve of freshwater.

  • Perito Moreno Glacier is one of just two glaciers in South America growing, a remarkable fact as most of the world’s glaciers are shrinking because of climate change. 

  • It is located in the Glaciers National Park, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. 

We will tailor this day for you; you’ll be able to choose the adventure that best suits depending on the season you visit the Glacier:

The classic exploration: 

  • Enjoy the unique landscapes of Patagonia, the Andes, and the Argentine lake. And visit the walkways to appreciate the imposing Glacier from different angles, whose detachments and continuous noises indicate a permanent advanced movement. 

  • You’ll sail in front of the Perito Moreno Glacier to get a closer look at the fantastic variety of colors and listen to the sounds of nature.  

  • Would you like to go more adventurous? Add sailing and trekking in the Patagonian Forest. 

The Minitrekking or Big Ice Trekking:


  • Be part of a highly personalized small group of travelers looking for an unforgettable adventure. 

  • You’ll sail before the Perito Moreno Glacier and enjoy the most spectacular ice trekking of your life! 

  • The Minitrekking is a softer adventure, including 1- 15-minute ice trekking, while the Big Ice offers 3-hour trekking. The difficulty of trekking is different; while the Mini trekking offers a moderately complex and full-day tour of 9 hours, the Big Ice has a higher complexity and lasts 12 hours. 

  • Once on the Glacier, you’ll view its cracks, sinkholes, caves, and seracs.  

Bonus! We will take care of the Gourmet picnic lunch for you, which will be prepared by the lodge. 


Meals: Breakfast, Lunch (at the hotel or Gourmet Picnic on the Glacier), and dinner at the hotel.  Accommodation: Eolo Lodge.  

Estancia Cristina - Upsala Glacier & authentic farm


Today, you will Step into the Wild side of Patagonia in Estancia Cristina. 


What to expect today

  • You’ll journey across Argentino Lake to find the “Lost Land” in the Glaciers National Park.

  • You are invited to let things go and breathe purer air while merging with nature and feeling a part of everything.

  • You’ll see the Upsala Glacier from a privileged vantage point; Estancia (Farm) Cristina is the only property on the Argentine Lake shoreline with a lookout point of the Upsala Glacier.

  • Sail for 2 to 3 hours while you dazzle with Floating Icebergs and Glaciar Upsala sights.


Highlights of the day: an off-road journey where you’ll reach celestial lakes, snow-capped peaks, and the second largest glacier in the National Park Los Glaciares, the “Upsala” Glacier. 


Bonus 1: Are you an adventurous soul searching for longer hikes? We suggest adding the Hike to the Canyon and discovering Marine fossils and the scars left by the Glaciers. 

Bonus 2: If you want to enjoy fishing in Patagonia, there is no better place to go after the prized chinook salmon. Let us customize this spectacular experience for you! 


Meals: Breakfast, lunch at the Estancia, and Dinner at the Lodge.  Accommodation: Eolo Lodge.
