Once on board, we continue navigating Argentino Lake, taking the Spegazzini Channel for the next stop in front of Spegazzini Glacier. The front walls are around 80 and 135 meters. The Spegazzini looks like a huge icy river that descends from a rocky mountainside until it plunges into the lake. It is there, in front of this marvelous sight, where we will enjoy our first lunch.

After lunch we will navigate Brazo Norte, we will see the series of ice floes, of the most varied colors and shapes, which anticipate the proximity of the stunning Upsala glacier. We will stop in front of barrier of ice floes, if the weather conditions are good, we will observe the Upsala glacier. The Upsala is 4 kilometers wide on the lake, its walls are 60 meters high on average, and its total surface is about 900 km2, including its drainage basin.
The next destination will be Bahia del Toro, in Seno Mayo. After dinner, passengers can join some of the activities organized by the crew. A lively talk, sharing ideas and the feelings created during the day, or the observation of the constellation map on a moon night, are just perfect for ending the second day of our journey.

Day 3: Glaciar National Park - El Calafate

At dawn, while we navigate south, passengers will have breakfast. We will land once again and get into the Andean-Patagonian woods to experience the magnificent natural landscape of Mayo and Negro glaciers.

After crossing the Canal de los Témpanos, the Cruise will arrive at the most outstanding of the glaciers, the Perito Moreno, where we will travel around the 2.5 kilometer front on the lake. Its walls, which are almost 60 meters high, still surprise with numerous calvings and powerful sounds. We will have lunch surrounded by this spectacular natural landscape.

On the way back, while we navigate through Argentino lake towards the dock La Soledad, we will have our farewell toast, the end of our journey. At 4 p.m., we will land and be transferred to El Calafate.
