Itinerary & Accommodation

Itinerary & Accommodation

Day 1: Punta Arenas - Puerto Natales

Upon arrival in Punta Arenas, transfer north to Puerto Natales and spend the evening relaxing at your hotel.

N.B. Flights into Puerto Natales are available on selected days. Contact us for details.

Day 2: Boat ride to Balmaceda and Serrano Glaciers & transfer to Torres del Paine

Transfer to the pier and board a boat that will take you on a stunning journey through some of the most awe inspiring sites in Patagonia. Begin in waters renowned for their sightings of dolphins and sea lions. Then continue through the natural wonderland of Estancia Margot, to a cliff which is a favoured hang out for a large number of wing flapping cormorants.

The next stop will be at Puerto Toro for a stunning hike at the base of the Serrano Glacier. Enjoy a traditional Patagonian lunch before taking to the water again, this time by Zodiac along the Rio Serrano which links the Ultima Esperanza Fjord with the famed Torres del Paine National Park. The voyage provides an abundance of magnificent views across the rapidly receding Southern Ice Field.

The excursion ends at the pier of Hotel del Paine, from where you can either walk or take an additional transfer to your hotel, depending on where you choose to stay.

N.B This excursion doubles as your transfer into Torres del Paine National Park, so you will need to bring any luggage you will require over the coming days with you. You may leave anything you do not need at your hotel in Puerto Natales and collect it upon your return.

Days 3: Torres del Paine 4x4 and hiking excursion

Join a full day 4x4 and hiking excursion around some of the 100km of road that wind through the stunning landscapes of the park. Highlights will include: a visit to the Salte Grande Waterfall, a thunderous cascade surrounded by picture perfect scenery and fauna such as wild guanaco; an easy 1 hour hike to the Mirador de los Cuernos (‘Viewpoint of the Horns’); and a stop on the Lago Grey Peninsula, with panoramic views of the nearby glacier – the largest in the park.

Spend another night at your hotel within the park boundaries.

Day 4: Torres del Paine free day

Today is free for you to either spend the day exploring on your own, taking in some of the most famous hiking routes in the world, or you can choose from a range of optional excursions – including guided hikes and a boat trip to get a closer look at the Grey Glacier.

Day 5: Miloden Cave and transfer to Puerto Natales

Transfer to Puerto Natales for another overnight stay, via the intriguing Milodon Cave. This natural creation comprises of several caverns, the largest of which measures 200 metres and is famed for the 1895 discovery of the remains of a giant sloth thought to have died there over 10,000 years ago. The cave system is also known for its evidence of human habitation dating back to approximately 6000 BCE.

Day 6: Puerto Natales - Punta Arenas

Transfer back to Punta Arenas in time for the onward flight to your next destination.
