Laguna San Rafael - All You Need to Know BEFORE You Go (2024)

catamaranes del sur spa

It is the fastest option to visit the Laguna San Rafael. The modern touristic catamaran is twice as fast as other crafts. It stays less time in front of the glacier, but offers the possibility to see with daylight the fjords and channels between Puerto Chacabuco and the Laguna San Rafael.

The check-in is at 07:00 at the harbour. The catamaran leaves at 08:00 and takes the passengers along islands, channels and fjords until finally arriving to the amazing Laguna San Rafael around two in the afternoon. If the weather conditions allow it, the passengers are taken in zodiac boats to get a closer look at the San Rafael Glacier and its many icebergs that float scattered in the lagoon. At the end of the excursion, a delicious whisky is served with millenary ice. The visit to the lagoon itself lasts between 2 to 3 hours, and afterwards starts the trip back to Puerto Chacabuco, ending the excursion around 9 PM.

There are departures scheduled all year round, less frequent in winter. The dates are irregular, but more often on Monday, Friday and Saturday

Important : Catamarenes del Sur may change this schedule, please confirm dates before making flight reservations.

The navigation is made in a comfortable catamaran called "Aysén". It allows you to enjoy the nature from its climatized interiors, comfortable bars or from the exterior decks.

The rates are per person and include full board (breakfast, appetizers, lunch, tea time and cocktail), excursion in zodiacs between the icebergs, whisky with "millenary ice".

Special rates: During low season (see departure calendar), there is a limited number of spots offered at special rates. When these tickets are sold, for the remaining spots the normal rate is charged. So it is recommended to book well in advance.

CRUISING CHILE FJORDS TO LAGUNA SAN RAFAEL GLACIER

Story and photos by Barb & Ron Kroll

A cruise through Chile's inside passage on the Chaiten Catamaran is an enjoyable day-trip from Loberias del Sur Hotel in Puerto Chacabuco. Located in the Aysen region of Chilean Patagonia, the 60-room hotel offers a four-day Glacier Classic Program.

The package includes the two-hour transfer to and from Coyhaique/Balmaceda Airport (code: BBA). It features buffet breakfasts and daily dinners, guided hiking and a Patagonian lamb barbeque.

Catamaranes del Sur cruise

The highlight is the full-day cruise to San Rafael Lagoon National Park on the 100-passenger ship operated by Catamaranes del Sur. Following the Moraleda Channel, our boat threaded its way between forested islands that are actually the verdant tops of the submerged coastal Andean range.

Our catamaran's double hulls noisily parted a flotilla of bergy bits after we entered Laguna San Rafael. It sounded like the ship was plowing through gravel.

Blue icebergs

As we cruised farther into the inlet, the icebergs grew more immense and more colorful. We searched for words to describe their hues: menthol-blue, ice-blue, powder-blue, baby-blue, mint-blue, stained-glass-window blue.

A thundering crash diverted our attention to the source of the crystalline mountains of ice: the San Rafael Glacier. It calved a house-sized iceberg, which slipped into the sea, creating a cloud of spray and undulating ripples that gently rocked our boat. Black-backed gulls flocked to the site to scoop up fish stunned by the impact.

Chilean National Park

Stretching three kilometers across and up to 70 meters high, the glacier is the focal point of the 1.7-million-hectare Parque Nacional Laguna San Rafael. The icy tongue is only an offshoot of the massive Northern Patagonian Ice Field.

At the end of the last Ice Age, its retreating glaciers eroded the valley bottoms to such a degree that the ocean eventually flooded them, giving rise to the fjords that now splinter the coast.

Zodiac ride

Backed by the 4,058-meter-high Monte San Valentin, the highest peak in the southern Andes, the glacier was an intimidating spectacle when viewed from a tiny Zodiac.

Aboard the rubber raft, we felt minuscule next to the jagged fragments of floating ice. Somber clouds gathered like heavy curtains over the glacier. Without the sun, the blue colors were even more intense.

30,000-year-old ice cubes

We zoomed along the glacier's crevassed facade, darting between wallowing icebergs. A curious black face popped out of the water and eyed us intently. Satisfied, the seal dove back in, only to poke his ebony head out of the sea on the other side of our Zodiac.

A crew member used a pronged stick to coax a punchbowl-sized iceberg into a net bag, which he hauled into the boat. With our booty stowed onboard, we navigated back to the ship.

As the Chaiten Catamaran departed from San Rafael Lagoon, the bartender chopped the chunk of 30,000-year-old glacial ice to cool our pisco sours — Chile's margarita-like national drink made from grape brandy. We raised our glasses in a toast to one of the world's most awesome fjord cruises.

With its mountains, glaciers and fjords, Chile's filigreed southwest coast is indeed something to celebrate.

catamaranes del sur spa

Playa Blanca

Playa Blanca es uno de los balnearios que se encuentran dentro de Isla Barú, uno de los archipiélagos más famosos y concurridos de Cartagena de Indias. Se encuentra a 45 minutos de la ciudad y se puede llegar por lanchas y catamaranes que parten del Muelle de La Bodeguita, cerca de la Torre del Reloj. Esta playa de Isla Barú es una auténtica postal de la belleza del mar caribeño. El color del mar es turquesa y cristalino, y sus aguas son tranquilas. La mejor opción es ir en temporada baja o, si asistes en verano, ir durante las primeras horas de la mañana para evitar la afluencia de gente y tener un espacio en soledad en una playa de ensueño.

Playas de Islas del Rosario

A pocos minutos de Playa Blanca y de Isla Barú se encuentran las Islas del Rosario. Estas islas son un pequeño archipiélago con postales encantadoras. Está formado por 28 islas y, al igual que el resto de los archipiélagos de Cartagena de Indias, la única manera de llegar es en lanchas o catamaranes.

Una de las atracciones de las Islas del Rosario es que allí se encuentra el Parque Nacional Natural Corales del Rosario, que alberga uno de los arrecifes de coral más espectaculares de toda Colombia y convierten a las Islas del Rosario en una de los lugares ideales para disfrutar de la vida submarina.

A diferencia de Playa Blanca, en las Islas del Rosario, oferece playas mucho más desiertas y menos abarrotadas de gente para que puedas disfrutar de un momento a solas con el océano atlántico.

Playas de Isla Grande

Isla Grande es una de las islas que conforman el archipiélago de Islas del Rosario. Se destaca por ser un lugar ideal para visitar los manglares que rodean la isla. El manglar es uno de los fenómenos naturales propios de la zona del caribe y un refugio de muchas especies animales, como aves, peces, moluscos y crustáceos. Además, en Isla Grande tendrás la oportunidad de practicar algunos deportes acuáticos únicos, como el snorkeling.

Playas de Isla Múcura

A hora y media en lancha desde Cartagena de Indias se encuentra la Isla Múcura, uno de los lugares más recónditos y soñados de toda la costa caribeña. Esta isla forma parte del archipiélago de San Bernardo, en el Golfo de Morrosquillo. Esta isla es ideal para aquellos viajeros que quieran apartarse del ruido de la ciudad y desconectar del tumulto. El entorno virgen y natural de la isla es de película y el silencio que la envuelve solamente es interrumpido por la llegada de las olas a la arena. Allí no hay tiendas, instalaciones ni locales. Eso sí: hay restaurantes.

Playa de la Península de Barú

La Playa de la Península de Barú es la playa que todos los colombianos te recomendarán visitar. Se encuentra cerca de Playa Blanca y es una de las más concurridas de todas las playas de Cartagena de Indias. Así que si quieres un poco de ajetreo y conocer gente, te recomendamos pasar un rato por la Playa de la Península de Barú.

Una recomendación para todos los viajeros es reservar una cabaña al llegar, para poder evitar las horas más calurosas del día y las posibles quemaduras generadas por el sol.

Aprovecha que ya sabes qué hacer en Isla Barú y disfrutala todavia más hospedándote en el primer resort de lujo de la Isla, el  Hotel Sofitel Baru Calablanca  . Allí, encontrarás todo lo que necesites para pasarla estupendo en el caribe Colombiano. ¡Aprovecha y haz ya tu reserva!

Descubre las playas de Cartagena de Indias

Ahora que conoces cuáles son las mejores playas paradisíacas de Cartagena de Indias, descubre los  mejores hoteles en Cartagena  para vivir una experiencia a la altura de este maravilloso destino en Colombia. Una ciudad increíble, de aguas turquesas, arenas cálidas y gente muy amable que se ganará tu corazón.

Savvino-storozhevsky monastery and museum.

Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery and Museum

Zvenigorod's most famous sight is the Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery, which was founded in 1398 by the monk Savva from the Troitse-Sergieva Lavra, at the invitation and with the support of Prince Yury Dmitrievich of Zvenigorod. Savva was later canonised as St Sabbas (Savva) of Storozhev. The monastery late flourished under the reign of Tsar Alexis, who chose the monastery as his family church and often went on pilgrimage there and made lots of donations to it. Most of the monastery’s buildings date from this time. The monastery is heavily fortified with thick walls and six towers, the most impressive of which is the Krasny Tower which also serves as the eastern entrance. The monastery was closed in 1918 and only reopened in 1995. In 1998 Patriarch Alexius II took part in a service to return the relics of St Sabbas to the monastery. Today the monastery has the status of a stauropegic monastery, which is second in status to a lavra. In addition to being a working monastery, it also holds the Zvenigorod Historical, Architectural and Art Museum.

Belfry and Neighbouring Churches

catamaranes del sur spa

Located near the main entrance is the monastery's belfry which is perhaps the calling card of the monastery due to its uniqueness. It was built in the 1650s and the St Sergius of Radonezh’s Church was opened on the middle tier in the mid-17th century, although it was originally dedicated to the Trinity. The belfry's 35-tonne Great Bladgovestny Bell fell in 1941 and was only restored and returned in 2003. Attached to the belfry is a large refectory and the Transfiguration Church, both of which were built on the orders of Tsar Alexis in the 1650s.  

catamaranes del sur spa

To the left of the belfry is another, smaller, refectory which is attached to the Trinity Gate-Church, which was also constructed in the 1650s on the orders of Tsar Alexis who made it his own family church. The church is elaborately decorated with colourful trims and underneath the archway is a beautiful 19th century fresco.

Nativity of Virgin Mary Cathedral

catamaranes del sur spa

The Nativity of Virgin Mary Cathedral is the oldest building in the monastery and among the oldest buildings in the Moscow Region. It was built between 1404 and 1405 during the lifetime of St Sabbas and using the funds of Prince Yury of Zvenigorod. The white-stone cathedral is a standard four-pillar design with a single golden dome. After the death of St Sabbas he was interred in the cathedral and a new altar dedicated to him was added.

catamaranes del sur spa

Under the reign of Tsar Alexis the cathedral was decorated with frescoes by Stepan Ryazanets, some of which remain today. Tsar Alexis also presented the cathedral with a five-tier iconostasis, the top row of icons have been preserved.

Tsaritsa's Chambers

catamaranes del sur spa

The Nativity of Virgin Mary Cathedral is located between the Tsaritsa's Chambers of the left and the Palace of Tsar Alexis on the right. The Tsaritsa's Chambers were built in the mid-17th century for the wife of Tsar Alexey - Tsaritsa Maria Ilinichna Miloskavskaya. The design of the building is influenced by the ancient Russian architectural style. Is prettier than the Tsar's chambers opposite, being red in colour with elaborately decorated window frames and entrance.

catamaranes del sur spa

At present the Tsaritsa's Chambers houses the Zvenigorod Historical, Architectural and Art Museum. Among its displays is an accurate recreation of the interior of a noble lady's chambers including furniture, decorations and a decorated tiled oven, and an exhibition on the history of Zvenigorod and the monastery.

Palace of Tsar Alexis

catamaranes del sur spa

The Palace of Tsar Alexis was built in the 1650s and is now one of the best surviving examples of non-religious architecture of that era. It was built especially for Tsar Alexis who often visited the monastery on religious pilgrimages. Its most striking feature is its pretty row of nine chimney spouts which resemble towers.

WGS 84 coordinate reference system is the latest revision of the World Geodetic System, which is used in mapping and navigation, including GPS satellite navigation system (the Global Positioning System).

Geographic coordinates (latitude and longitude) define a position on the Earth’s surface. Coordinates are angular units. The canonical form of latitude and longitude representation uses degrees (°), minutes (′), and seconds (″). GPS systems widely use coordinates in degrees and decimal minutes, or in decimal degrees.

Latitude varies from −90° to 90°. The latitude of the Equator is 0°; the latitude of the South Pole is −90°; the latitude of the North Pole is 90°. Positive latitude values correspond to the geographic locations north of the Equator (abbrev. N). Negative latitude values correspond to the geographic locations south of the Equator (abbrev. S).

Longitude is counted from the prime meridian ( IERS Reference Meridian for WGS 84) and varies from −180° to 180°. Positive longitude values correspond to the geographic locations east of the prime meridian (abbrev. E). Negative longitude values correspond to the geographic locations west of the prime meridian (abbrev. W).

UTM or Universal Transverse Mercator coordinate system divides the Earth’s surface into 60 longitudinal zones. The coordinates of a location within each zone are defined as a planar coordinate pair related to the intersection of the equator and the zone’s central meridian, and measured in meters.

Elevation above sea level is a measure of a geographic location’s height. We are using the global digital elevation model GTOPO30 .
