The northern arm of Lake Argentino is visited by crossing the Icebergs Channel, located 14 km from the Upsala Glacier (one of the largest), also sailing in front of the Spegazzini Glacier (the highest).

We will go to the Gangways where we will have a service sector for visitors and a system of balconies and walkways that allow hiking on different routes and access different views of the Glacier and its proximity to it. We can observe the Argentino Lake with its Round Bay. In it you can see an important variety of birds. In the first 40 km the Patagonian steppe is crossed, later passing the entrance of the National Park to observe the arboreal vegetation mostly belonging to the “notofagus” family (ñires, cherries, lengas) and the occasional cinnamon, and flowers of different colors, among which the notor stands out for its intense red color corresponding to the Andean Patagonian Forest. Arrive at "the curve of sighs" called this way because it is the first point where we have a panoramic view of the Perito Moreno Glacier.
