Sailing the north arm to Upsala Channel (Iceberg watching and panoramic view of the Upsala Glacier) + Hike to Los Perros Waterfall (3:00hrs approx.) + Visit to the historical sites of the Estancia and Museum.
Having set sail from Punta Bandera harbor at 9 AM, we will glide over the waters of Lake Argentino’s Northern Arm to reach the furthest possible point of navigation in the Upsala Channel, where we can enjoy an incredible panoramic view of the Upsala Glacier’s immense front. Then, having disembarked at the shores close to Estancia Cristina, an expert guide will welcome visitors and take them on an exciting trek through the surrounding valley. The hike unfolds along an ecotone area, a beautiful, semi-arid place carpeted in native shrubs and grasses. Next, the walk gradually ascends to an elevated lookout point that bestows sweeping views of the valley beyond, over Lake Argentino and Lake Pearson, and across the towering Andes Mountains.
From here, continue on a path sloping gently uphill, surrounded by ñire trees, until you reach the highlight of this trek: Los Perros River Waterfall, whose viewpoints not only bestow jaw-dropping vistas but are also a fantastic spot for observing flowers and plant life, especially orchids.
Later on, having returned from the trek, we will visit the Costumbrista Museum, housed in the estancia’s old shearing shed, where guests can learn all about the history of the Masters family: their lives, adventures and how they became pioneers in Patagonia. Finally, a guided tour will take lucky visitors around Estancia Cristina’s estate–up to the Caterina River, the waterwheel, the chapel, and the rest of the lodge.
