    •  El Calafate

      • Trekking on Ice - This is a day exploring one of the largest and perhaps the most beautiful glacier in the world. This is not for everybody, high physical demand due to the long walking times, but totally worth it​.  Transportation and guide included.

The Cost

The estimated cost of this package with everything outlined above included is:

PLEASE NOTE:

  • This estimate is total for three of you, not individual cost

    • If you budget allows, I could recommend:

      • A more fabulous hotel in Buenos Aires. Faena Hotel! About $200 more per night.  Perhaps the last night?

      • A unique experience in El Calafate. Accommodation in an "Estancia" a more exclusive experience, staying in ranch , with all meals and daily activities included.   About $1000 more. 

      • A luxury Winery hotel in Mendoza.  Multiple Prices. 

      • A 5 star hotel in Punta del Este (Not in the gay area)

    • If your budget is more limited, I could look for smaller hotels, or small apartments. 

  • Our packages do not include insurance. I would recommend travel insurance since you will be doing a lot of physical activities. 

Let me know if there are any questions, comments, decisions.  Please remember this is a living document.  We can continue to add, remove, change, etc.  We'll tailor this until everyone is completely satisfied.
