We enjoyed the day cruising the Lago Argentino with Cruceros Marpateg. I highly recommend the cruising option to access the Onelli Glacier. The views are breathtaking and panoramic. We stopped along the way and enjoyed a five star dining experience in front of the glaciers while sipping champagne.

It's usually a long day catamaran to get there - but plenty to see throughout the trip, especially look out for the geological formations along the shore, and glacial scraping

Really enjoyed this. We had a fantastic time getting here and seeing the sheer size and sight of it. Remember that it's very cold and prepare for it.

I reached there as part of the cruise I took in Lake Argentino, it is a small glacier, without a big impact to the viewer. After being at Peritto Moreno, I wasn't too excited from this one.
