When I was planning my trip to Argentina, heard about a tour through the icebergs in the Lake Argentina in the Calafate. But… I wanted more! Although I was planning on visiting the Perito Moreno Glacier, I was looking for a different tour and found it in Estancia Cristina. A one day trip for Calafate. The excitement began on the port before leaving and never ended. Just being in the lake around icebergs that looked like they were carved to form beautiful structures was enough, but the trip was just beginning.
After arriving in this isolated paradise in the middle of the glacier, we took a 4x4 to get to the top of the mountain. Amazing views! Then we walk and the geology of the place was incredible. Looking at the rocks you feel like you are in another planet, maybe in Mars. After getting to the top, the spectacular view of the Upsala glacier is a breathtaking experience. It is one of the most intense, beautiful, and unique experiences you will ever have. If you have in your bucket list to see a glacier, this is an excellent trip.
My recommendation, ask your travel agent to add this one day tour to the traditional “package” they will sell you that includes the Perito Moreno. It is worth every single dollar you pay for it.
