Boat Tours in El Calafate
The two most popular scenic boat rides in the Parque Nacional los Glaciares are the hour-long Safari Náutico, in which your boat cruises a few meters away from the face of the Glaciar Perito Moreno, and the full-day Upsala Glacier Tour, in which you navigate around a more extensive selection of glaciers, including Upsala and Onelli, and sections of Lago Argentino that are inaccessible by land.
