We will begin our expedition in Puerto Natales with the check-in at 7:30 am to set sail in the catamaran at 8:00 am. Beginning our sailing across the Señoret Channel, we will pass by the Frigorífico Bories National Historical Monument, a 1913 construction characteristic by its industrial post Victorian English style. We will continue the travel towards the Guanaco Island, where we will see beautiful Magellanic dolphins, also known as toninas, a must-see wonder, just as the existing birds in the Cormorants Wall. The access to the island is through the Estancia Margot, a natural attraction that you will love. We will continue the journey by cascades, cliffs and Punta de Lobos, where we can see some sea lions.

The navigation will go on to our main destination, the Balmaceda Hill, from where we will see the spectacular Balmaceda Glacier. We will disembark in Toro Port, where together with our guide we will make a walk by the Témpanos Lagoon shore. After a short break, we will continue towards the Serrano Glacier through a native forest of coigües (Nothofagus dombeyi), ñirres (Nothofagus antarctica) and ciruelillos (Embothrium coccineum), enjoying the impressive vegetation and the contrast between the sky and the ice of the sea. Once in the Serrano Glacier, we will enjoy a whiskey with thousand-year-old ice while we have a spectacular panoramic view of the Serrano Glacier.

In case of choosing the navigation without lunch, we will return to Puerto Natales after visiting the Serrano Glacier, arriving at 3:00 pm. In case of choosing the navigation with lunch, our last stop will be in the Última Esperanza Fjord, where a delicious typical Patagonian lunch will be waiting for us. After that, we will go back to Puerto Natales, arriving at 5:00 pm.
