The trip to Puerto Bandera is the same way as to Perito Moreno only you turn right instead of left . It takes about 40 minutes by car .

The black ice has it's color from the rocks and sand that it rubbed against sliding down the glacier .

I am always ready to eat and to go on a glacier cruise.

 

Fantastic pictures!!

 

Here' what we can look forward to :

 

GLACIERS GOURMET

AN UNIQUE GOURMET EXPERIENCE ENJOYING THE BEST OF SOUTHERN PATAGONIAN GLACIERS.

The Patagonian ice field is, after Antarctica, the largest concentration of ice on the planet. Its glaciers descend from 1,500 to 200 metres above sea level enabling unique access and viewing of the glaciers.

Los Glaciares National Park offers a magnificent combination of forest, lakes, mountains, ice and steppes with over 200 glaciers. The most renowned being Spegazzini, rising 135 meters above sea level, Upsala covering an entire valley with an approximate extension of 765 Km2 and a length of 53km, and Perito Moreno Glacier, constantly advancing and causing the spectacular rupture of the wall of ice, providing one of Nature’s most impressive sights.

Glaciares Gourmet is a full day journey to one of the most wonderful places in Southern Patagonia. Sailing aboard exclusive Cruise María Turquesa will enjoy the highest standard of comfort and gourmet cuisine, for a truly memorable experience.

That's why we always ask for a table of 8, we have met so many great people & have always enjoyed our table companions. Most nights our table is one of the last to clear the dining room.

I believe that the first glacier that we saw was the Upsala

We had seen many icebergs , glaciers and glaciers close up from a boat . A little later on the Zaandam we would encounter an iceberg 130 ' tall , 5 miles wide and 11 miles long !
