  • 11 years ago was fortunate to be able to make the trip "all glaciers' in which you could see several glaciers, (Uppsala, Spegazzini...) and disembark and 800 metres walk through a forest and see the Bahía Onelli and the glaciers (one of them the Onelli). The contrast of the forest with Lake and glacier front was unbelievable. This excursion was replaced "eventually" by it of "rivers of ice", that visit the glacier Upsala (far, by existing risk) and the glacier Spegazzini (this if is looks closely). This time I have not had the good fortune to be able to make the trip to go see the Onelli glacier among other things because the access is closed from 3 years ago because there was a landslide that swept away the Onelli Lake, the forest and the jetty (a part disappeared) you can see the pictures on the internet if you seek. By what believe that the people that writes on the glacier Onelli in the excursion is wrong of glacier or it saw makes more than 3 years, but currently not is can see (at least from the Bay Onelli, passing by the forest). It is a pity because it was worth seeing.
