AN UNIQUE GOURMET EXPERIENCE ENJOYING THE BEST OF SOUTHERN PATAGONIAN GLACIERS.
The Patagonian ice field is, after Antarctica, the largest concentration of ice on the planet. Its glaciers descend from 1,500 to 200 metres above sea level enabling unique access and viewing of the glaciers.
Los Glaciares National Park offers a magnificent combination of forest, lakes, mountains, ice and steppes with over 200 glaciers. The most renowned being Spegazzini, rising 135 meters above sea level, Upsala covering an entire valley with an approximate extension of 765 Km2 and a length of 53km, and Perito Moreno Glacier, constantly advancing and causing the spectacular rupture of the wall of ice, providing one of Nature’s most impressive sights.
Glaciares Gourmet is a full day journey to one of the most wonderful places in Southern Patagonia. Sailing aboard the exclusive Leal Cruiser you will enjoy the highest standard of comfort and gourmet cuisine shared with a limited number of passengers (max.28), for a truly memorable experience.
