DESCRIPTION

  • Day 1: Arrive El Calafate
  • Day 2: Full day Perito Moreno Glacier with Nautical Safari
  • Day 3: El Calafate OUT
Day 1: Arrive El Calafate
Upon arrival in El Calafate, you will be picked up and taken to your selected hotel. We highly recommend visit Nimez Lagoon at sunset. Night in El Calafate.
Day 2: Full day Perito Moreno Glacier with Nautical Safari
Breakfast at your hotel. We travel to Los Glaciares National Park, which is comprised of about 47 glaciers that reveal a 10 thousand-year-old world - cold and wild. The most famous is Perito Moreno Glacier in the southwestern end of Argentino Lake, 80k/49m away from El Calafate. This glacier owes its name to a great Argentinean explorer from the last century and is one of the few glaciers in the world that is still moving - one of the most spectacular natural shows in South America. Periodically its 200-foot high outer edge will release ice walls the size buildings that fall into Rico Bend or Canal de los Témpanos (Ice floes Channel). Then they continue sailing along the channel to the main area of the lake. It is a thrilling sight as the glacier comes closer to the Magallanes Peninsula, footbridge, and viewpoint area. This show is breathtaking, accompanied by the sounds and echoes of cracking ice.
Return to the hotel in the evening. Local restaurants offer great quality food and friendly service. We recommend trying the famous "Cordero al Asador". Night in El Calafate.
Day 3: El Calafate OUT
After breakfast, you will be taken to the airport for your flight back home.

TESTIMONIALS

Griffin H.
PERU Trip Was EXCELLENT, EUREKA TRAVEL Made Sure Of This!
My friend James and I used Eureka Travel for our Peru adventure, and man, am I glad we did. Analia and her team are extremely resourceful, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. They created an extremely easy, thorough Itinerary. Eureka was able to provide us with many options. For example, initially we wanted to go to Bolivia in addition to Peru. Eureka gave us the best options: fly into this city, take the train here, then go into this country, etc. Everything was so direct and easy to communicate. They know South America so well that any question we had, they had the answer for us, or would always find it for us. We ended up going to Lima, Cuzco (Cusco), Machu Picchu and Iquitos. Eureka made it all very simple and easy for us. I was so glad, for example, that they planned out for us to acclimate to the high altitude of Cuzco, by making sure we had four to five hours to rest. Even though we only did a tour of the Spanish Colonial Churches, we needed the rest! I would definitely use them again and recommend Eureka to all my friends and family.

We used Eureka Travel to plan a 21 day trip for 6 adult friends to Chile, Argentina, and Brazil. We all had a fantastic time, and have nothing but good things to say about Analia and the people at Eureka. When we began planning the trip, Analia was very helpful and responsive as we went through the various iterations about exactly where we were going and what we were going to see and do. The final itinerary was very clear and we had a phone conversation to go over each day of the trip to ensure that I knew exactly what to expect. All 6 of us shared the same itinerary in Chile and Argentina, but we went separate ways once we reached Brazil. Analia was very accommodating and helpful in making the different arrangements for all of us on the Brazil portion of the trip.

Once the trip began, we were all very pleased with the design of the itinerary (where we were, how many days we spent there, what we did, etc). Analia and Cecilia (who lives in Argentina) were both very responsive to the questions or issues we had along the way (there were very few). All of our accommodations were first rate and in great locations. All of our transportation was extremely well coordinated - the drivers and tour guides were where they were supposed to be when they were supposed to be there. We had at least 7 or 8 different tour guides in the different locations throughout the trip, and they were all incredible, with excellent English, local knowledge, and interpersonal skills.

Of course there were a few glitches along the way, but they were all quickly handled with a text, phone call, or Email. We have nothing but praise for Analia and Eureka, and would definitely use them again or recommend others to plan their holiday to South America.

Steve and his friends traveled to Chile, Argentina & Brazil in March 2018.

We stumbled upon Eureka doing a google search, and so glad we did! I'm normally a DIY traveler, but with the complexity of logistics for a trip to Peru/Machu Picchu, we didn't want to have to worry about our itinerary. The Eureka team was very helpful in putting together a thorough itinerary, and everything on our trip was perfect.

Eureka tavel met my needs for the perfect honeymoon & more. Analia was great from the start, in meeting my needs & adjusting where needed.

Always prompt response! Once on our way Cecilia helped me re-arrange things when my visa needed extending, again helping us out at every point! Once we arrived in Brazil, after a bump in the road with group travel, we were at our destination in Buzios, Brazil-AMAZING! We loved the recommended boutique hotel Casas Brancas & would go back in a heartbeat, the people were friendly & views were incredible! We visited at least 10 different Beaches.

We continued on to Rio & enjoyed the planned tours that Analia reccomended & were really great! Eureka travel has great taste & really care about your vacation! Can\'t wait till our next South American trip, we will definately go with Eureka!
