An alternative trip through untouched landscapes with abundant greenery and countless birds, connecting the Torres del Paine National Park to the Bernardo O’Higgins National Park and Puerto Natales.
The day begins with a pickup – to be agreed (from Puerto Natales or from a sector inside or near the Torres del Paine National Park).
On the banks of the Serrano River, we kick start the excursion with instructions to ensure comfortable, safe kayaking. We pack the kayaks with the necessary equipment and set out on our adventure.
We paddle to the Salto del Río Serrano (a beautiful waterfall), where a short walk (around 100 metres) carrying the kayaks means we avoid the waterfalls. Our journey continues along the rushing Serrano River, on our way to the Serrano Glacier. The Tyndall Glacier and Cordillera Geike lookout points reveal that we’re travelling very close to the Southern Patagonian Ice Field. We stop for a break here to rest and refuel, a lunch spot with unbeatable views. We then move slowly towards Monte Balmaceda until arriving in Puerto Toro, where we camp and enjoy a tasty dinner in the heart of the beautiful Patagonian landscape.
Please take into consideration that from the beginning to the end of the kayaking, the itinerary may change due to the Patagonian winds.
– Overnight: tents
– Meals: lunch (picnic) and dinner.
Early morning, after breakfast, we carry our kayaks 30 metres to Laguna Serrano (where the Serrano Glacier ends). We paddle between the blue-stained icebergs that break off the face of the huge glacier and will return at midday to take a larger boat back to Puerto Natales through the Última Esperanza Sound, with stunning views of the Balmaceda Glacier. We stop at Estancia Perales to enjoy a delicious, traditional lamb roast. We get back to Puerto Natales at around 6 pm.
