Highlights and product description overview
It’s time to check Chile’s Patagonia region off your bucket list starting with Torres del Paine National Park and Puerto Natales. In what may be South America’s finest National Park, you will find unparalleled panoramic views ranging from the Towers of Paine themselves to bright blue glaciers and emerald green forests. On arrival, we will be there to meet you at the airport in Punta Arenas, then travel to the beautiful port city of Puerto Natales, the gateway to Torres del Paine National Park and the majestic Balmaceda and Serrano Glaciers.
On day two we will depart for Torres del Paine for a full-day excursion. This adventure will include iconic viewpoints like Cerro Castillo and azure lakes like Lago Toro, Salto Grande, Lake Pehoe and Lago Gray, famous for its floating ice bergs. Day three features a boat trip to the captivating Balmaceda and Serrano Glaciers. Enroute we have the opportunity to view sea lions, Andean condors, elephant seals and several cormorant colonies right from the deck of the ship. As your boat closes in on Mount Balmaceda the impressive glacier that spills off the sheer face of the mountain comes into view. We continue a short distance and dock near the Serrano Glacier where you may disembark for a short walk around a small lake formed by the melting glacier. The last day of the trip takes you back to Punta Arenas for your final departure.
Note: Balmaceda and Serrano glaciers tours are only available on Sundays from May to September
