Visit to Torres del Paine National Park, declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, in 1978. During the tour, we visit Del Milodón Cave and a small museum, which shows Prehistoric flora and fauna of the region. We continue towards the Park and once inside, from the Nordenskjold Viewpoint, we are able to appreciate a panoramic view of the Paine Massif. Bordering Pehoé Lake, we make it to our next destination: an imposing waterfall called Salto Grande. To reach it, we walk a short distance and find a viewpoint where it is possible to observe its flow. We have lunch (box lunch) surrounded by a landscape of mountains, and later we visit the area of Grey Lake and Grey Glacier, where we go on a one-hour trekking to admire, from the coast, lots of icebergs with different shapes and sizes. Return to Puerto Natales.
Transfer to El Calafate (Argentina) or Punta Arenas (Chile), to board the flight to your next destination.
To keep in mind:
• Suggested extension from El Calafate
• The bus from and to El Calafate may interrupt its services from May to September inclusive.
• We recommend adding one night in Puerto Natales and sailing through Señoret Channel to the Balmaceda and Serrano Glaciers.
Torres del Paine Optional Tours
Balmaceda and Serrano Glaciers.
Once embarked, we begin to sail through Última Esperanza Fjord towards Bernardo O’Higgins National Park. At the beginning of the trip, we pass by Puerto Bories (Historic National Monument), the Waterfalls and Cliffs of the Condors and Mount Balmaceda to appreciate the glacier of the same name. We continue to disembark at Puerto Toro to start walking through a forest until we get very close to the wall of Serrano Glacier, where we enjoy lunch.
Duration: 10 hours Meals: Patagonian lunch
To keep in mind: Additional night in Puerto Natales is required.
Grey Lake Boat Trip.
This boat trip starts from Hotel Lago Grey in Torres del Paine National Park. Later, depending on the conditions of the lake, a walk between 30 to 40 minutes may be necessary to reach the boarding place. After approximately 35 minutes of navigation between floating icebergs due to the ice detachments of the glacier, we arrive at the front of the glacier, which is divided in two by a kind of central island (Nunatak). Return to the hotel.
Duration: 3 hours
