From the Port of Punta Bandera, 47 km from El Calafate, we start sailing through the North Arm of Lake Argentino. We cross the Boca del Diablo towards the Upsala Channel and to navigate between the large icebergs that emerge from the front of the Upsala Glacier. Then we enter the Spegazzini Channel and moments later
we will have the first view of the Dry Glacier. We continue sailing to the front of the Spegazzini Glacier where we will also see the Heim Sur and Peineta glaciers. We prepare to disembark at La Base Spegazzini and begin the visit to the area by walking through the forest path to the Spegazzini Refuge. This 300 metres path has unparalleled views of La Bahía de Los Glaciares, on its way we can enjoy thematic stations and viewpoints.
In the refuge we can have lunch, visit the shop or admire the landscape. Those who like to walk can take the mountain path. This route is a médium difficulty trek through a wooded path with natural viewpoints.
This iconic landing point has two trails designed for visitors to tour the Glacier Bay. The forest path runs for three hundred meters from the landing point to the Spegazzini Refuge. On the hike we will stop at different stations (Glaciology – History – Fauna and Flora) and we will have access to viewpoints. The path is accessible and does not represent complexity since it is done on firm ground. Once in the Refuge, visitors will be able to enjoy the gastronomy, the shop and an incredible panoramic view both from their rooms and from the outside (Deck & Terrace).
The Spegazzini Refuge has the Main Hall located facing the lake front and its large window gives us a panoramic view of the Spegazzini Glacier. It is a very bright and spacious space with 280 square meters. Its maximum capacity of seated diners is 300 and for cocktails is 400. The room can be modulated according to the required configuration. From here we have access to the 120 square meters Main Deck. The Captain’s Club Lounge has privileged views of the Spegazzini Glacier and the Heim Glacier. Its warm decoration presents it as a friendly space to share and relax. This room is 80 square meters and connects to La Terraza of 75 square meters. Passengers can take their own box lunch or buy it in the refuge market that offers a wide range of options for those that do not want to carry a box lunch from Calafate.
It´s an additional service not included in the rate. Captain´s club passengers have preferential assistance from the moment of the arrival. The service includes an aperitif, a main dish, a dessert and open bar service: alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks and cafeteria throughout the visit. Lunch will be served at the Spegazzini refuge.
