“The long ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

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.

The Onelli Glacier you can see if you realize the excursion of 7 hours on a boat. Is a amazing experience!!

“Just a small regular peice of ice:)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2011

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.
