Estancia Cristina & Sailing Upsala Glacier

Estancia Cristina & Sailing Upsala Glacier

per person

Experience the beauty of Estancia Cristina´s environment and the Upsala Glacier on a full day journey of discovery from El Calafate, which includes a sailing through the numerous icebergs floating in Lake Argentino, a tour to the historic Estancia and in the afternoon an off road tour or a trekking to Cañadón de los Fósiles. The adventure begins at your hotel for a transfer to the port Punta Banderas where  you will board a comfortable and modern boat to start the three hour sailing among icebergs and a landscape surrounded by snow-covered peaks. The boat will reach the front of the Upsala Glacier before entering the Cristina channel where the Estancia is located. We disembark and a local guide will introduce us to the history of Patagonian sheep and cattle, before visitng the museum and old shearing shed. A short guided walk along the Caterina River up to the estancia´s chapel is another activity offered. After lunch, guests can choose the Off Road “Discovery” option or the Trekking to Cañadón de los Fósiles option.

Those choosing the Discovery option will enjoy a three-hour Off road trip on board 4×4 vehicles through a mountain scenic trail. At the highest point, guests can take a short walk through the strange terrain eroded by glaciers years ago until reaching a priviledged viewpoint of Upsala glacier. If there are no clouds, from this point it is also possible to see the Continental Ice Sheet and the Andes mountains.

For those that chose the Trekking option, they will also ascend by 4×4 vehicles up to the Upsala viewpoint and from there they will begin the two hour trekking to the Fossiles Canyon, a site of marine fossiles, a unique place in the park. Descend by car to take the boat back to Calafate. With this option, guests should take lunch boxes with them.
