DAY 1: BUENOS AIRES – USHUAIA

Arrival at Aeroparque to board the flight to Ushuaia. Arrival at Ushuaia and transfer to the chosen hotel. Rest of the day free.

DAY 2: USHUAIA, FREE DAY FOR OPTIONAL ACTIVITIES

Breakfast. On this day, starting in the morning, we recommend an optional activity to the Tierra del Fuego National Park, a unique and beautiful landscape, surrounded by mountains and cold forests, later we arrive at Bahía Lapataia on the coast of the Beagle Channel. Back to the hotel.

DAY 3: USHUAIA – CALAFATE – FREE AFTERNOON

Breakfast and transfer to the airport in Ushuaia to board the flight to Calafate. Arrival in Calafate y transfer to the chosen hotel. Check-in and rest of the day, free.

DAY 4: CALAFATE, VISIT TO THE MORENO GLACIER

Breakfast and a full day activity to the Perito Moreno Glacier, 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 walkways, you will be led to face the glacier and admire it in all its grandeur. Consult about the extra charge for the mini trekking activity on the glacier, accompanied by mountain guides for a two-hour circuit. Then you will stop for lunch at a shelter (take a lunch box with you) and then back to the walkways, where you will spend an hour and a half watching the most incredible views and calving activity. Back to the hotel.

DAY 5: CALAFATE, FREE DAY FOR OPTIONAL ACTIVITIES

Breakfast. On this free day, we recommend an optional activity to the ranch “Estancia Cristina”. The activity 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 Perito Moreno Glacier. 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 Perito Moreno Glacier before. Back to the hotel. Overnight.
