Itineraries

Day 1

Transfer to Puerto Natales – Half Day hike Dorotea Hill 3 hours

Upon your arrival to Punta Arenas airport, your guide will welcome you and a private transfer will drive you to Puerto Natales. After you leave your luggage at your hotel, we will do a short hike to Dorotea Hill. Dorotea Hill offers one of the best panoramic views of the local area. A truly great way to reach the summit is hiking through forests of calafate bushes and lenga beech trees. Once at the top there is an incredible view of Puerto Natales as well as all the mountains and glaciers that surround the area of the Última Esperanza Fjord.

Day 2

Hike the Lazo Webber Trail 13 km

A private transfer will pick you up at your hotel in Puerto Natales and take you to Estancia Lazo, a 13, 000 hectare cattle ranch founded over a century ago and is still operating today beneath striking views of the Paine Massif on the shores of Laguna Verde. From here we’ll hike into Torres del Paine National Park along a generally flat trail through peaceful stretches of native beech and coihue forests. This area is teeming with wildlife. As you walk, watch for condors and caranchos circling the skies, guanacos grazing on the hills, and woodpeckers, owls and lesser known species such as the cachana (Austral parakeet), peeking out from the leafy trees. We’ll reach Honda Lagoon and continue on to the Toro Lake lookout (559 meters), where 360 degree views of mountains, rivers, lakes and glaciers await. Take a moment to identify the Grey, Serrano and Paine Rivers, Serrano Valley, Mount Balmaceda and the Geike and Tyndall glaciers before we make our descent to the Weber Bridge, where a transfer will take us to our campsite.

Day 3

Horseback Ride to Tyndall Glacier Lookout Point 6 hours

In the morning, your guide and private transfer will pick you up at your hotel in Puerto Natales and take you to the Serrano area along endless landscapes and Patagonia pampas. An unexplored valley at the border of Torres del Paine National Park awaits us today. After meeting our horses and guachos, we will set out on a ride across rivers and through landscapes of lakes and wetlands, while views of the Paine Massif and the glaciers of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field shift alongside us. At the lookout point of Tyndall Glacier we’ll stop for lunch and later return via a different path, this time riding along the shores of the Serrano River and past a waterfall of the same name. As we arrive at our Riverside Camp, a freshly prepared welcome dinner awaits followed by splendid views of the Paine Massif set among the colorful Patagonia evening sky.

Day 4

Full Day Sea Kayaking at Lake Grey and Grey River paddling 25 km

After an early breakfast your transfer will drive you to Grey Lake to meet your kayaking guide. Here, with views of Paine Grande and Grey Glacier as our morning backdrop, you’ll hear about kayaking safety and paddling techniques. You’ll paddle Grey Lake for approximately two hours, weaving amongst the floating icebergs that have calved from the glacier and been whittled into natural ice sculptures by the wind and sun. While paddling, take time to look around you: the granite peaks of Paine Grande, Cordon Olguín and Los Cuernos interplay beautifully with the water’s multiple shades of turquoise. Leaving Grey Lake we’ll begin our descent of Grey River, which snakes through canyons bubbling with rapids and framed by steep rock faces. Accompanied by views of the imposing Paine Massif, we’ll paddle for 25 km down Grey River until it joins the Serrano River. After four to five hours of paddling we’ll arrive back at our campsite ready to stretch our muscles and prepare for dinner.

Day 5

Laguna Azul and Fat Bike to Laguna Amarga 3 hours

An early morning transfer will drive us from the Serrano area to Laguna Azul on the border of Torres del Paine National Park. This is an area abundant in birdlife (watch out for coots, swans, ducks and woodpeckers) and the lagoon offers a great view of the three Towers; mirrored in its blue waters on clear, still days. Here, we’ll ride our bikes to Laguna Amarga, a lagoon whose waters contrast with Laguna Azul in both color and texture. Its name, Amarga or “sour”, is due to its high pH level, cloudy turquoise color and the distinctive white salty rim at the shoreline. Highlights along the way to Laguna Amarga include Cascada Paine waterfall and the chance to photograph wildlife and the Park's endlessly changing views. After this great biking experience, we’ll take a private transfer back to Puerto Natales where our journey ends.

Day 6

Transfer to Punta Arenas airport

After breakfast you will have a transfer to Punta Arenas airport on time to board your flight back home.
