A chance to explore the wonderful city of Buenos Aires. Or you may wish to go further afield, and visit the Uruguayan town of Colonia, a ferry ride away across the River Plate. This evening you will be transported back in time thanks to the La Ventana tango show.

Standing at over 100 m high, it is one of the few glaciers in the world still advancing, and we will have a chance to watch it ‘calving’. After this exhilarating experience, we return to El Calafate, where we overnight.
Day 6: El Calafate, Upsala & Onelli Navigation
Beginning at Punta Bandera pier, sail the northern arm of the Argentinean Lake towards the Upsala Glacier. This is one of the biggest glaciers of the Patagonian ice cap with walls reaching more than 20 metres high. Cruise along its 6 km front wall and then head towards the Onelli Bay to disembark and walk for around 800 metres through a typical Andean-Patagonian forest. Back on the boat, the trip continues through Onelli Bay to Spegazzini Glacier, the highest glacier in the park before returning to Punta Bandera pier and then back to El Calafate by bus.

Day 8: Bariloche Llao Llao Peninsula (Short Circuit)
We leave the city behind to take in the breath taking views offered by Llao Llao Peninsula’s short circuit. Home to a number of protected species as well as the iconic Llao Llao Hotel, the peninsular is nothing short of spectacular. We begin on the southern shore of the famous Lake Nahuel Huapi before heading to Mt Campanario where we take a 10 minute chairlift ride to the top of the mountain. With an abundance of forests, mountains and lakes, today is picture postcard perfect and with numerous stops along the way we will ensure that you have ample opportunity to capture these unforgettable sights. Includes transfers from Central Hotels.
Day 9: Bariloche: Lake Nahuel Huapi Navigation
This half day tour sees us drive to Puerto Pañuelo to board a catamaran that crosses the majestic Lake Nahuel Huapi to Quetrihue Peninsula: here we wander among distinctive forests of Arrayanes trees.
