For 1900 pesos per person, they visit 2 little iceburgs and one small, receeding glacier. A photo company blocks off park of the deck to take cheesy pics of older Argentinian tourists for 2 hours. The photo company controls how long tge boat stays around...More

A boat trip of 5 hours for € 160 p.p. A boat with 200 passengers and 2 professional photographers, who like to put each one on the photo. And gladly sell the printed copies at the end. They claim the beautiful positions on the boat....More

I booked the boat trip to Uppsala and Spegazzini (Rios de Hielo) for ca. 150 USD inkl. transfer. The boat trip takes roughly 4,5 h, which makes it much more expensive than e.g. the Perito Glacier Hiking which covers a full day. Arriving to the...More

The first thing you need to know is that tours throughout Patagonia are really, really expensive. I can't think of any reason why that should be, but it is. So be prepared to dig deep unless you're doing everything on your own. Of course, boats...More

We highly recommend this activity although it's not for every budgets... Seeing the glaciers Upsala and Spegazzini from close distance is truly amazing. The boat ride was great as well. On board, during the ride, there were many comments made over PA on the things...More

Don't waste your time & money on this tour. The glaciers are beautiful, but the tour operator and actual experience on the catamaran is TERRIBLE. The big catamaran had way too many seats and not enough space outside for everyone to view the glaciers. I...More

Picked up by a vintage bus. The catamaran itself was good. Smooth. Comfortable. Excellent guides. Took us to 2 glaciers. Should give refreshments included in this price. Park entry is extra at 260. The transfer was extra at 300 a head. Good to do. Bhagwan
