The tour

 It starts at 9.30 Am in the city of “El Calafate”, where we travel 50 km by the route through the farms (estancias) up to the Roca Lake at the southern end of the national park. We leave back the arid steppe landscape to enter on the zone of the forest transition. At the end of the road we find the pioneer Nibepo Aike estancia/ farm belonging to the Jansma family. There after a hike through the head of the estancia/ farm, we attend to the lectures and demonstrations of shearing and equestrian, once finalized them, we enter to the comfortable barbecue area of the estancia/ farm in order to taste a typical Patagonian lunch which includes: a salad bar and vegetables along with the delicious lamb and others Argentinean cut meats to end up with a delicious sweet caramel (dulce de leche) crepes, all harmonized by fine Argentine wines and other beverages. Right after a pleasant lunch, we head up to our port to embark and start navigating to Playa de las Monedas (Coins beach) through the Brazo Rico, from there, we disembark and after a peaceful 20 minute walk into the forest of lengas trees, we get out to a lookout spot where you can appreciate the south side of the Moreno Glacier. We go back to the boat in order to continue sailing off the south side. Before  leaving the boat, around 3.30 pm, the crew team "go fishing" an iceberg and we offer a whiskey with a glacier ice.

 

The Return

We disembark at the Bajo de las Sombras and by bus, the passengers are directed to the Glacier´s walkways by arriving at 4.00 pm, where they will remain there  until 6.30 pm and right after,  they will return to El Calafate by the traditional route. It is important to emphasize that the arrival on the walkways,  by that time,  90% of visitors who left in the morning from Calafate have already returned to the city.

All lunch services with  non alcoholic  drinks and wine as well as the souvenir  on the boat are included in the total costs of the tour. The Passengers are followed from the departure El Calafate by a bilingual tour guide (English / Spanish, eventually, Portuguese and Italian)
