Pick-up begins at hotels at 7am to head the road to port Punta Bandera (about 50 km away from El Calafate), were the boarding proceeds. Once on board we will sail the North Arm of Lago Argentino towards the Boca Del Diablo (narrowest part of the North Arm) and then we will go through Upsala Channel up to the glacier of the same name, where you will be able to watch from close different types of icebergs that form an impenetrable barrier. After appreciating that sight, we will keep sailing through Cristina channel until we get to the Estancia.
When you reach to the Estancia, the first activity will be to visit Estancia Cristina folkloric museum. After this, we will take a 4WD vehicle crossing the Peninsula Herminita for around 45 minutes, arriving to a shelter called Rios Continentales. Once there, we are going to hike for about 30 minutes until we reach the Upsala Glacier viewpoint, where you will have a magnificent view of Lago Guillermo, Southern Ice Fields and the Cordillera de Los Andes. Then you will continue your tour by 4WD vehicles through the Estancia for about one more hour.
Finally, you will get to port to board the ship back to El Calafate.
