After pickup at your hotel in central El Calafate, depart for Santa Cruz province and your glacier adventure cruise. Gaze out the window at the Patagonian scenery during your 31-mile (50-km) drive to Puerto Bandera on the pristine Lago Argentino.

Climb aboard your vessel for a sail through Los Glaciares National Park's Lago Argentino. The lake's milky blue waters boast floating ice chunks that have calved (fallen off) of the glaciers in the area. View the Upsala Glacier, which flows form the Patagonian Ice Field, and marvel at the Spegazzini Glacier if weather permits.

Purchase lunch aboard the boat or enjoy a packed lunch you brought with you. Learn about the area's natural history, flora and fauna from your knowledgeable guide and snap photos as your boat weaves between floating icebergs of all sizes.

Afterward, the boat returns to Puerto Bandera, where you will board your vehicle for the return trip to El Calafate and drop-off at your hotel.

great promises, less realized: no full day boat tour, just the ordinary 5 hrs Rios de Hielo Express tour

the Vitator offer El Calafate Glaciers Sightseeing Cruise is exactly the same like the Rios de Hielo Express boat tour offered by many companies for the same Price or even a bether Price. I did not want to do this very short Rios de Hielo Express boat tour, thats why I ve choosen this offer by vitator. as it has promised something different and a longer tour. Promise broken, Vitator offeres this tour as an 8 hrs tour, but it was only 7 hrs, with only 5 hrs boat tour. 2 hrs were hotel pick up and Transfer to port. So a 5 hrs boat tour is by far not the "full day boat tour" Vitator has offered. We are disappointed.

The tour was excellent, gorgeous views, well organized. Very relaxing and worth doing it! The only downside is they don't tell you the exact time of hotel pick up. We had to wait over 30 min in the lobby.

Wonderful tour of the Spegazzini and Upsalla glaciers. Staff had just the right amount of care and friendliness without being over the top. Lots of information in Spanish and English and opportunities galore for great photos. Good boat and transfers smooth and professional. Highly recommend it for all ages

Glaciers are very impressive! The tour lasts a full day, you will need to have your own lunch because the ship has only a coffee shop. Be prepared for the wind.
