  • Ride more than wonderful! Everyone should have the opportunity to do it! We were very lucky because on the snowy day, it rained, sun came out and so cold and windy. The ride was wonderful. The tour was all day on the Gourmet Glaciers tour. An expensive ride but worth the price.

  • A walk through Lake Argentino, to visit some of the most important glaciers in Patagonia. Excellently equipped boats, highly trained guides. A great experience between glaciers and with a fair duration.
