  • This is a really nice trip. There are several options for activity once you are at the ranch. The lunch was tasty and service efficient. The boat trip gets a view of the face of the Upsala Glacier and many icebergs calving from the glacier. Upon landing at the ranch, the group is devided into subgroups depending on which activity you chose. The staff and crew are very helpful and efficient. Tours are offered in Spanish or English but many of the guides speak other languages as well. I chose the Discovery option which includes a 4x4 drive up the mountain and a hike to an overlook where a large section of the icefield and glaciers are dramatically displayed. The views are stunning and unlike anything I've ever seen. The guides explain a bit about the glaciers and the Southern Icefield, which is the 3rd largest in the world. Whichever option you choose, this a trip not to be missed.
