Travel FlyFishingCaribe & Patagonia is glad to offer this special package to visit Perito Moreno Glacier, considered the eighth wonder of the world. The program consists in spending 2 nights in Buenos Aires and visiting this fascinating cosmopolitan and mutifaceted city which is the political, cultural and economic heart of Argentina.; and three nights in the Southern Patagonia, staying at a unique lodge located just a 30-minute drive from El Calafate.

On the third day, you will travel by plane to El Calafate, where the staff of the lodge will be waiting for you to drive you to La Anita Valley and the eastern slope of the Mount Frias, where the lodge, a property of 3,000 hectares, is located. From its spacious and comfortable facilities, you have a wonderful view of Argentino Lake to the North, La Anita Valley to the East and Torres del Paine and Brazo Rico, a branch of the lake, to the south.

The lodge offers different activities such as horsebackriding, trekking, mountain biking and birdwatching. Our package also includes two excursions: the first, to the majestic Perito Moreno Glacier, famous for being one of the of the few glaciers with access from land, as it is surrounded by the mountain and the forest. You will be able to witness the vivid hew of the ice floes and hear the roar of huge blocks of ice breaking away from the glacier. The other excursion is to Upsala Glacier, navigating the Argentino Lake on a catamaran. The catamaran sails along the Upsala branch to reach the very wall of the glacier. Then you will sail back up to the conjunction with the Cristina branch, to get to Cristina Bay for a walk or a 4x4 ride with guides who will explain the characteristics of the place, its flora and its fauna. Finally, you will visit Estancia Cristina, to enjoy a delicious lunch consisting of patagonian lamb. In the afternoon, you will return to the lodge.
