We enjoyed the day cruising the Lago Argentino with Cruceros Marpateg. I highly recommend the cruising option to access the Onelli Glacier. The views are breathtaking and panoramic. We stopped along the way and enjoyed a five star dining experience in front of the glaciers while sipping champagne.

Really enjoyed this. We had a fantastic time getting here and seeing the sheer size and sight of it. Remember that it's very cold and prepare for it.
