Lugar lindo , complementa o perito moreno. Tem que fazer a opção discovery , é muito caro mas vale. Primeiro um passeio de barco que leva até o glaciar por baixo.

First a boat ride that leads to the glacier underneath. On the way we see icebergs, beautiful look. In the resort we have a very nice tour of the history of the resort. We went with Juan de Guia and he nailed it. It has lunch that can be bought the part. If you're with little kids who don't eat well, don't buy them lunch. Take a snack. For adults The food is well OK. Do not leave to buy on time, they do not have this option. Book lunch or at the time of booking the resort or on the boat. It is well served, so think that if you eat little of the for two. Then we climbed 4 X 4 and saw a magnificent, unmissable look. Screwed, screwed and half, don't opt for the Classic. Top Ride.

This is a really nice trip. There are several options for activity once you are at the ranch. The lunch was tasty and service efficient. The boat trip gets a view of the face of the Upsala Glacier and many icebergs calving from the glacier. Upon landing at the ranch, the group is devided into subgroups depending on which activity you chose. The staff and crew are very helpful and efficient. Tours are offered in Spanish or English but many of the guides speak other languages as well. I chose the Discovery option which includes a 4x4 drive up the mountain and a hike to an overlook where a large section of the icefield and glaciers are dramatically displayed. The views are stunning and unlike anything I've ever seen. The guides explain a bit about the glaciers and the Southern Icefield, which is the 3rd largest in the world. Whichever option you choose, this a trip not to be missed.
Excellent walk! Spectacular views! History to be missed
