Experience the Magnificence of Patagonian Glaciers with Cruceros MarPatag
Cruceros MarPatag is perhaps the only company that afford you the opportunity to witness the splendour and impressive beauty that the ancient glaciers of Patagonia provide whilst luxuriating in a service and style that can cater to even the most discerning traveller.
There are two choices of ship offered by Cruceros MarPatag, the first being Crucero Leal which has been in operation since 2001 and offers choices of either half day charters or full day cruises in which to see just how huge and powerful the Patagonian glaciers are. Whilst their ancient beauty may be awe inspiring, the awesome power that they possess is even more amazing and evident. The second ship offered by Cruceros MarPatag is Crucero Santa Cruz which caters to those that want a more in depth experience with the glaciers and so offers 3 day cruises that take you through glacier fed lakes to witness the Spirit of the Glaciers first hand. Both these cruise ships are luxurious and leave from their own private dock in Bahía Tranquila, Paraje Punta Bandera, called “La Soledad”.
Catering to up to 28 passengers at a time, the Crucero Leal allows travellers with Cruceros MarPatag to have relatively short but informative and unforgettable experiences with these ancient glaciers that have been sculpturing the beautiful Andean- Patagonian landscape for thousands of years. Leaving at 9 in the morning, travellers will watch in awe as the ship navigates through the majestic ice floe of the Canal Upsala before enjoying a gourmet lunch whilst gazing in wonderment at the Spegazzini Glacier and its walls of ice that reach heights of up to 135m (443ft).
The Crucero Santa Cruz offers Cruceros MarPatag travellers to experience a more in-depth view of these gigantic glaciers that stand as testament to nature providing greater wonders than man could possibly equal. During this 3 day exploration you will also experience the dangers of the ice floe and marvel at the Spegazzini Glacier but then you will continue sailing through Lago Argentino to see the vastness of Upsala Glacier which covers an area of 900 km2 (347 square miles). On the third day you get to see more of the beauty the area has to offer, in the form of the Andean-Patagonian woods before arriving at what is possibly the most awe inspiring of all the glaciers, the Perito Moreno that spreads along one and a half miles of the lake side. Here you will enjoy your gourmet lunch listening to the powerful sounds of the glacier as it breaks up rocks or cracks and splinters.
Cruceros MarPatag offer travellers the opportunity to see sights that cannot be matched anywhere else in the world. Whilst enjoying these unique sights that emphasize the rugged remoteness and ancient beauty of Patagonia, travellers can also experience contrasting elegance, luxury and service to a standard that only modern technology can provide. These are certainly adventures in travel that combine two extremes to provide the most unique, informative and memorable experiences that will leave you in awe of nature’s true might.
