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.

This boat tour of Onelli, Upsala and Spegazzini glaciers is a grand trip for all. There are only a few large tour boats on the mostly vacant glacial lake. The lake system is quite vast and very calm. No one should be sea sick on this voyage.

The trip itself is quite beautiful. Touristy for sure, but if you want to see three different, majestic glaciers in different parts of the lake, this is what you have to do. It is well worth the trip and the cost for the half day trip.

Be sure to bring your lunch or a snack. There is no food served or for purchase on the boats. You can obtain drinks, however.

One tip. The boats offer, for an exorbitant price, to sit in a enclosed glass cabin with a bigger cushy seat with the the captain and drivers of the boat. There are about a dozen or so seats set apart for this. A pure cash cow. I think the only time the seats are of any use at all is when you have to sit in your seats departing and returning to the port berth. Otherwise, the fun is to go outside to see the sights without looking through a window. while there are two small separate balconies in the enclosed area, they are very small and very restrictive. There is no advantage over roaming outside to catch your favorite view. Save your money.

It used to be great to go with the boat passing by to disembark at the forest and est in a shelter nearby. Nowadays the glacier has blocked the access therefor is no longer included in the ICE RIVERS tours generally replacing the part for the Perito Moreno part north side. Ice rivers tour will take you to Upsala, Spegazzini and Moreno actually... enjoy!

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

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.

The Argentine glaciers are among the few remaining, largely untouched, natural wonders of the world. They are amazing and awe-inspiring to see and to imagine what it must have been like when much of the world was covered in glaciers.
