For 1900 pesos per person, they visit 2 little iceburgs and one small, receeding glacier. A photo company blocks off park of the deck to take cheesy pics of older Argentinian tourists for 2 hours. The photo company controls how long tge boat stays around...More

This is worth going on this Tour just to see Upsala and Spegazzini but be warned its not the best experience! You are crammed on to a boat for about 5 hours with many other people and its a little chaotic to say the least!...More

I booked the boat trip to Uppsala and Spegazzini (Rios de Hielo) for ca. 150 USD inkl. transfer. The boat trip takes roughly 4,5 h, which makes it much more expensive than e.g. the Perito Glacier Hiking which covers a full day. Arriving to the...More

Unfortunately we had terrible luck and booked the trip on an incredibly foggy day. We understand the agency can't control the weather but they could have warned we would have zero visibility if we booked the trip. The weather for the last couple of days...More

Picked up by a vintage bus. The catamaran itself was good. Smooth. Comfortable. Excellent guides. Took us to 2 glaciers. Should give refreshments included in this price. Park entry is extra at 260. The transfer was extra at 300 a head. Good to do. Bhagwan
