Additional Information

Highlights:

  • Torres del Paine National Park:
    A national park encompassing mountains, glaciers, lakes, and rivers in southern Chilean Patagonia. The Cordillera del Paine is the centerpiece of the park. It lies in a transition area between the Magellanic subpolar forests and the Patagonian Steppes.
  • Have you ever felt completely insignificant in comparison to nature?
    Well, get ready to feel precisely that way among the turquoise waters, glaciers and towering granite horns of the Torres del Paine National Park. The jaw-dropping landscapes of this eighth wonder of the world are humbling indeed.
  • The Southern Ice Fields:
    They are the main attractions and they invite you to visit the areas on boats and to behold their magnificence. This is an area that keeps the purity of nature in the south intact, giving the visitors an unforgettable experience. It is a large expanse of ice with 49 glaciers, among which we find the O’Higgins and Pio XI Glaciers in the Bernardo O’Higgins National Park, and the Tyndall, Grey, and Montt Glaciers, which you can observe in the Torres del Paine National Park.

Description:

The catamaran will begin sailing Señoret Channel, heading northwest to Balmaceda mount while enjoying your breakfast on board.

Our first point of interest will be Frigorífico Bories National which is a historical monument. It was founded in 1913 by Sociedad Explotadora Tierra del Fuego. It was the city’s largest slaughter of the area for over 60 years. Its post Victorian architecture style still remains these days. Then, we will go through Señoret channel to head to Guanaco Island where toninas (a type of dolphin) can be seen.

Later, we will pass by Margot farm where you will see cormorants. We will continue our excursion until Punta de Lobos where we will find sea lions. After that, we will visit a waterfall as well as a cliff where you can see some condors. In each place, the catamaran will stop for some minutes so that you can enjoy the scenery.

On the way back, our tourist guide will be waiting for us to give the safety instructions before getting on board our semi rigid inflatable boat. Our tour guide will also explain about the route and provide us with a survival suit in case the weather conditions are unfavourable.

Then, we will begin going up to Serrano river which has about 40 kilometers of length. It is fed by Grey, Tyndall, Balmaceda and Geikie glaciers. The boats are equipped with comfortable and individual seats. During our journey, we will stop to enjoy a magnificent view of Tyndall glacier, which is part of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field.

Then, we will get to Del Salto area where we will walk about 15 minutes to get on an inflatable boat and continue the tour. In the middle of the walk, we can stop at Cerro Donoso view  point and see how the water flows into Salto area.

Once we get on the boat, we will continue our sailing to the final point, Chaitén port, located at Serrano area, where we will enjoy a delicious Magellan barbecue.
