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.
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 for 0.6 miles along the bank of the Témpanos Lagoon with our guide, through an easy access track. 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 a Estancia Perales, where a delicious typical Patagonian lunch with roasted lamb will be awaiting us. After this we will go back to Puerto Natales.
*The end time of this activity could be modified due to weather conditions, which is why we recommend purchasing your ticket to leave Puerto Natales at least three hours after the scheduled return time, or on the day after the tour.
