We will begin our expedition in Puerto Natales with the check-in at 6:30 am to set sail in the catamaran. 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. We will pass through through the Estancia Última Esperanza, 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 sailing 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.
We will make a last stop in the beautiful Última Esperanza Fjord, where a delicious typical Patagonian lunch with roasted lamb, will be waiting for us, after which we will go back to Puerto Natales.
*During the low season, April to September, the estancia visited is the Estancia Turística Perales.
*The menu of lamb can be replaced by a vegetarian menu.
*The ending time of this activity might be modified due to weather conditions, reason why our recommendation is not to buy tickets for leaving Puerto Natales until three hours after the returning time, or travel the next day after the end of the tour.
