The Argentine glaciers are among the few remaining, largely untouched, natural wonders of the world. They are amazing and awe-inspiring to see and to imagine what it must have been like when much of the world was covered in glaciers.

This boat tour of Onelli, Upsala and Spegazzini glaciers is a grand trip for all. There are only a few large tour boats on the mostly vacant glacial lake. The lake system is quite vast and very calm.

Ice rivers tour will take you to Upsala, Spegazzini... More

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.

It's usually a long day catamaran to get there - but plenty to see throughout the trip, especially look out for the geological formations along the shore, and glacial scraping

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.

I reached there as part of the cruise I took in Lake Argentino, it is a small glacier, without a big impact to the viewer. After being at Peritto Moreno, I wasn't too excited from this one.
