Safari Boat, navigation in El Calafate


The Perito Moreno glacier is located in the province of Santa Cruz, 80 km from El Calafate. This glacier with a surface area of 250 km2, stands out for its ease of access, its purity and color and for being one of the few glaciers in the world that are not in decline. As if outside little this glacier, from time to time, the phenomenon known as  “the rupture” that keeps everyone with the curiosity of knowing when it will be the next. For those who want to tour the area there are several excursions like “Excursion Rivers of Ice” or the “Minitrekking on the glacier¨. Another option is to make a navigation on its waters. In this post we talk about the Safari Boat.Safari Boat, navigation in El Calafate

The excursion begins in the port “Under the shadows” (at 7 km from the viewpoint of the glacier), where you take the catamaran to undertake through the Brazo Rico, where you can see the icebergs from the walls of ice from the Perito Moreno glacier.
