    What to Expect
    After pickup at your hotel in central El Calafate, depart for Santa Cruz province and your glacier adventure cruise. Gaze out the window at the Patagonian scenery during your 31-mile (50-km) drive to Puerto Bandera on the pristine Lago Argentino.

    Climb aboard your vessel for a sail through Los Glaciares National Park's Lago Argentino. The lake's milky blue waters boast floating ice chunks that have calved (fallen off) of the glaciers in the area. View the Upsala Glacier, which flows form the Patagonian Ice Field, and marvel at the Spegazzini Glacier if weather permits.

    Purchase lunch aboard the boat or enjoy a packed lunch you brought with you. Learn about the area's natural history, flora and fauna from your knowledgeable guide and snap photos as your boat weaves between floating icebergs of all sizes.

    Afterward, the boat returns to Puerto Bandera, where you will board your vehicle for the return trip to El Calafate and drop-off at your hotel.

    Our confirmation for this tour indicated hotel pickup at 8:30am. When we tried to confirm this with Grey Line Argentina it was as though we didn't exist. We were asked twice to email our names, passport details, tour booking reference and still received no assistance. Thanks

    My experience was good overall. The cruise was excellent and a staff member who spoke English translated the main commentary for the small number of folks on board who weren't fluent in Spanish. The sights we saw were amazing, and even though I visited in spring, it started
