    This tour combines Buenos Aires and the most beautiful patagonian destinations: Puerto Madryn, Ushuaia, El Calafate and Bariloche.

    In Puerto Madryn is one of the richest sites as far as species diversity is concerned. Bird Watching – mainly penguins – happens to be the preferred choice for many visitors. Sea lions, seals, killer whales and the Southern Right Whale are the other main characters of this natural stage.

    Ushuaia is the southernmost city in the world. Landscape changes drastically with each season, so it is worth visiting this destination during all the year.

    In El Calafate, you will visit a World heritage: Los Glaciares National Park.  There you will enjoy Perito Moreno Glacier that is an incredible ice wall wich moves slowly pushed by an ice stripe and gets lost in the horizon.

    To complete this Patagonian tour, you will visit Bariloche to enjoy its mountains and lakes.

The famous Perito Moreno Glacier is located in the extreme southwest of Lago Argentino 80 kilometers from El Calafate. It has become one of the greater natural spectacles of South America. From time to time walls of ice fall from the 60 meter tall face into the waters of Brazo Rico or to the Canal de los Témpanos, navigating the channel to the principal body of the lake. This cycle will take 4 to 6 years ending with the lake divided in two. The Brazo Rico remains retained and elevates approximately 35 meters above its current level. The water slowly makes a tunnel in the glacier until the pressure makes it collapse. This spectacle is indescribable. The waters precipitate in gigantic waves only to start the process all over again. Bring or purchase a box lunch or drink. Navigation and trekking tours are available year round to purchase on site. State of paths: completely gravel. Regular tour departs at 9:00am, returns at 5:00pm.
