Day 2 – Balmaceda and Serrano Glaciers
An unforgettable day between water and ice: Enjoy an all-day boat trip to the glaciers Balmaceda and Serrano, leaving Puerto Natales via the “Last Hope Fjord” where you will see the spectacular Balmaceda Glacier coming down from the mountains. At the end of the fjord, you leave the boat and walk through the sub-Antarctic forest, until you reach the foot of the Serrano Glacier. The chance to get this close to a glacier is very rare! Let the ancient ice work its enchantment on you. Afterwards, you will have a typical Patagonian lunch at the Estancia Perales. Revived and refreshed, you will start an adventurous trip by zodiac into the Torres del Paine National park. Do not be afraid of wind and water. The river meanders through wild landscapes, enchanted canyons and fjords, and here and there, you will see the ice of glaciers. In the afternoon, you will arrive at your lodge.
