Estancia Cristina With Lunch

Estancia Cristina With Lunch

The upside of Upsala

There is so much to see and do when visiting Argentina that it's tempting not to plan too many excursions or stray far from the magnificent buildings, lovely green parks, superb restaurants and great buzzing nightspots in the capital city Buenos Aires. But while there it is always worth doing something different and this full day trip out on the water makes for the perfect adventure.

You will be taken on a memorable voyage among the giant icebergs and stunning scenery overlooking the western front of the beautiful Upsala glacier and then through the Cristina Canal to the Estancia, where you leave your vessel. Then enjoy a guided walk up to Caterina River, visit the chapel and tour around the Estancia before sitting down to a delicious lunch.
