At the pier, you will board the “Tehuelche” ship to go across the Rico Lake and get to the southern shore after about 20 minutes. During the whole trip it is possible to have an overview of “Canal de Témpanos” (The Iceberg Channel) and of the south wall of Perito Moreno Glacier. After disembarking, and accessing a shelter, the trek along the shore of the lake starts. It is a twenty – minute stroll to get to the glacier. From then on, it is a two-hour-long walk on the glacier in which it is possible to have a chance to watch a variety of ice formations such as cracks, drains, small lagoons, and so forth. The stroll is moderate and the surface upon which it is performed is irregular but firm and safe.

Esquina Carlos Gardel Dinner Tango Show Excursion
At the corner of the alley named after Carlos Gardel and Anchorena Street, next to a statue that immortalizes the most famous tango singer, there used to be a restaurant that was the gathering place for the colorful characters of the popular market of Buenos Aires. Chanta Cuatro Restaurant was a silent companion to Carlitos Gardel’s nights of dining and tango singing until sunrise with friends.

Chanta Cuatro opened its doors for the first time in 1893, at that time as a two storied restaurant and family hotel. Visitors were invited to play “bochas” (bocce) at the court attached to the restaurant. The opening of Chanta Cuatro was almost simultaneous with that of the old Mercado de Abasto (produce market) of the city of Buenos Aires, sharing its glory and decadence. It housed workers, immigrants and “malandras” (scoundrels). It witnessed the splendor of tango, maybe due to the proximity to Carlos Gardel’s home at Jean Jaures Street, less than two blocks away.

Today, more than 100 years later, as if by magic, this story comes back into life. Esquina Carlos Gardel, located exactly on the same lot where Chanta Cuatro used to be, offers an unmatched, unbeatable alternative in Tango theme restaurants.

Argentinian Falls Excursion (IGR Hotels)
The park was created in 1934 with the main aim to protect the majestic Iguazu Falls. In 1984, the UNESCO declared this place Natural World Heritage due to the beauty of the scenery and the biological diverse in this subtropical rainforest.

The visit to the Iguazu National Park can be done via 3 circuits and on catwalks, best known as Lower Path, Higher path and the Devil´s Throat Path. The Lower Path is a 1,200-metre-walk (0.8 miles) that gives a great view of the majority of the rapids and falls from a front and lower point of view. The distances range from a bird’s eye point of view of The Devil’s Throat together with several Brazilian rapids, to spectacular close-ups to other falls. This walk has some high difficulty level due to the number of steps along the way. (Approximate duration: 2 hours). The Higher Path is a 1,300-metre-walk (0.9 miles) that will raise every visitor´s adrenaline level because of the vertigo of being at the edge of some waterfalls. This walk has breathtaking sceneries from a cliff-point outlook and this is the less effort demanding walk of the three traditional ones. No steps along the way. (Approximate duration: 1 hour). The Devil’s Throat has to be access via the Ecological Jungle Train, and everyone must get off at the stop named after this waterfall. From there, there is a stroll along the catwalk which is a winding path that goes around the islands for 1,100 meters (0.7 miles) and ends in the large balconies located on the edge of falls. There are no steps along the path.  (Approximate duration: 2 hours).
