Estancia Cristina Full-Day Tour from El Calafate
From US$277.00
Combine a boat trip around Spegazzini Glacier with a visit to a working estancia (ranch) on a single tour of Argentina's Patagonia region. Explore by water and land, learning about the area through a guide's detailed commentary. All of this multi-stage excursion's details are all taken care of, so you can relax and enjoy the experience. Customize your tour by choosing from a range of activities at Estancia Cristina.
What to Expect
After convenient early-morning hotel pickup at your El Calafate hotel, relax on the scenic drive through the countryside, snapping photos of the picturesque towns while your guide takes care of navigation.

Arrive at Lake Argentino's Punta Bandera and hop aboard a boat helmed by an expert captain, who will navigate the towering icebergs like the early explorers once did. Listen to live commentary while taking in views of the Spegazzini Glacier's 131-foot (30-meter) sheer ice walls. The boat will continue through the Cristina Canal to Estancia Cristina.

The day's activities at the estancia include visits to the Folkloric Museum, the chapel, and the Caterina River. The rest of the day includes options such as an intensive hike or a gourmet 3-course lunch, allowing you to customize your time at the ranch. End the day with convenient drop-off.

Glacier and icebergs by boat. Glacier viewing and Fossil Canyon on foot. Great time

This is an all day trip that we would repeat. You get picked up at your hotel in El Calafate and transferred to a dock for a 3 hour boat ride that includes circling icebergs from the Upsala glacier. Then, you dock at Estancia Cristina,...More
