Argentina is located in the southern 'cone' of South America, between the Southern Atlantic to the east and the Andes to the west. One day you can be watching the most impressive waterfalls in the world, the next you could be hiking over a glacier. Classical cruises in Argentina are offered for discerning travelers. A small group shares the wonderful experience of sailing on Lago Argentino aboard the Leal Cruiser, in search of the "Spirit of the Glaciers". 50-meter-high walls of millennial ice, majestic icebergs, long Patagonian sunsets and dark and clear nights - it's the experience of nature at its best.
The luxury yacht only takes a small group. The aim of the cruises in Argentina such as this is to enable guests to enjoy the amazing Patagonian wilderness whilst traveling in comfort. Activities such as reading, the interpretation of the local flora and fauna and historical events related to the first settlers in this area contribute to the full appreciation of this area. "Spirit of the Glaciers" is a 2 days/1 night live-aboard tour in a pleasant and exclusive environment.
Starting from the harbor the tour sails up to Punta Avellaneda along the northern branch of Lago Argentino. It then travels towards the Upsala channel to sail among icebergs and reach the Upsala wall. At midday the anchor is set in Onelli Bay for lunch. After that the navigation is resumed to the front of the Spegazzini Glacier. In the afternoon the anchor is set in Puesto Vacas for the overnight stay. The lunch is at Alemana Bay the next morning. The visit to the famous Perito Moreno Glacier is in the afternoon and then the tour returns to harbor.
