First part of the route goes trough the Boca del Diablo, the narrowest part of the lake, from there the ship will be heading to Canal Upsala & Canal Spegazzini where we can see the cannel ends and both glaciers. The navigation goes into magnificent icebergs of many sizes and shapes.

We prepare to disembark in The Spegazzini Base and we begin the visit to the area walking through from the forest path to the Spegazzini Refuge (next to the opening rarse). This 300-meter path is accessible and as we travel it we stop at stations and viewpoints overlooking the entire Bay of Los Glaciers. In the refuge we can have lunch, visit the shop or appreciate the landscape. For those who like to walk, they can take the mountain path. This tour is a medium difficulty trekking tad through a wooded road, with natural viewpoints, full of incredible views that ends at the landing point.
The ships have very good heating and you only need to stay on the outside decks in case you want to take pictures.
