We will begin our expedition in Puerto Natales with check-in at 6:30 am to set sail on the catamaran. To start off the voyage through the Señoret Channel, we will pass by the Frigorífico Bories National Historical Monument, a structure from 1913 that stands out due to its industrial, post-Victorian English style. We will continue the journey until reaching Guanaco Island, where we will see beautiful Magellanic dolphins, also known as toninas, a must-see wonder. We will pass through the Estancia Última Esperanza, a natural attraction you will fall in love with. We will continue on the journey past cascades, cliffs, and Punta de Lobos, where we will be able to spot some sea lions.
The journey on the water will continue until we reach our main destination, Balmaceda Mountain, where we will be able to see the awe-inspiring Balmaceda Glacier. We will disembark in Puerto Toro where we will hike along the bank of the Témpanos Lagoon with our guide. After a short break, we will continue on to the Serrano Glacier, passing through a native forest of coigües (Nothofagus dombeyi), ñirres (Nothofagus antarctica), and ciruelillos (Embothrium coccineum) while enjoying the magnificent vegetation and the contrast between the sky and the sea ice. Once we have reached the Serrano Glacier, we will enjoy a whiskey with thousand-year-old ice while we take in a breathtaking panoramic view of the glacier.
We will make one last stop at the beautiful Última Esperanza Fjord, where a delicious typical Patagonian lunch with roasted lamb will be awaiting us. After this we will go back to Puerto Natales.
