Arrival at Ezeiza International Airport and transfer to the chosen hotel in the city of Buenos Aires. In the afternoon we go on a city tour visiting Plaza de Mayo, where you will also see the Metropolitan Cathedral and Casa Rosada (Government House), Teatro Colón, La Boca district with its famous Caminito street and modern Puerto Madero where docks were refurbished to allocate sumptuous restaurants along the river. Transfer back to the hotel.

Day 2: Free Day - Tango Show Dinner Night

Day 3: Buenos Aires – Calafate – Free Afternoon

Day 4: Visit to the Perito Moreno Glacier

Breakfast and a full day excursion to the Glaciar Perito Moreno, the most famous of the glaciers, declared World Heritage Site by the UNESCO. The glacier covers an area of 195 square meters, its width is 5 km and the height of its ice walls is up to 60 meters above the lake’s level. As you follow the catwalks you will be led to face the glacier and admire it in all its grandeur. Consult about the extra charge for the minitrekking excursion on the glacier, a two hour circuit accompanied by mountain guides. Then you will stop for lunch at a shelter (take a lunch box with you) and then back to the catwalks where you will spend an hour and a half watching the most incredible views and calving activity. Back to the hotel.

Day 5: Free Day for Optional Excursions

Breakfast. On this free day we recommend an optional excursion to the ranch “Estancia Cristina”. The excursion involves navigating the Lago Argentino among huge ice floes and magnificent views of the western front of the Glaciar Upsala, continuing through the Cristina Canal to the disembarkation point at the Estancia Cristina where there are many activities to do. Another good option is Navegación Todo Glaciares (navigating all the glaciers) visiting the front of the Glaciar Upsala and disembarking at Bahía Onelli (only if the ice barrier allows it), then navigating the surroundings of the Glaciar Perito Moreno. Another shorter and cheaper option is Navegación Ríos de Hielo (navigating frozen rivers), navigating the Lago Argentino, but without passing the sites which have been mentioned, this is an excellent option for those who have already visited the Glaciar Perito Moreno before. Back to the hotel.
