  • We did the Cañadon de los fosiles tour. They pick you up at the hotel around 7h00, then you go to Puerto Bandera to get a boat, it´s a 3h boat tour in Lago Argentino, beautiful place, where you can se...  more »
  • We hire the excursion directly with Estancia Cristina. You can book with or without transfer. You go to look at the hotel and take you to point flag where you take the boat. The ida, they are 3-hour boat because you have to see the front of the Upsala glacier. If you have luck you can see landslides and can you take pictures. During the trip you serve coffee, tea, matecocido and croissants. Or you also can take you. Arriving to stay, you make a visit for the same and the Museum. Then for lunch, you can get a snack or a meal at the restaurant of the stay ($600 with starter, main course, dessert, a glass of wine). After lunch you got 3 excursion options: Classic (quiet trek towards the waterfall of dogs with Argentine lake view); Discovery: take you in 4 x 4 towards the viewpoint of the Upsala glacier and Trek: take you in 4 x 4 towards the glacier Lookout and then back with a trekking by the fossils of Canada. The view of the place is awesome. Worth it!
