Have an unforgettable experience on this cruise through a fjord in the heart of beautiful Patagonia to the glaciers of Balmaceda and Serrano. Admire some of the most breath-taking landscapes in Chile.
Patagonia Glacier Cruise
We will collect you from your hotel early in the morning and head towards the docks in Puerto Natales. There we will climb on board the boat which will take us the glaciers of Balmaceda and Serrano in the O’Higgins National Park.
Our cruise cuts through the magical Patagonian landscape sprinkled with forests and hills and we head into the ‘Última Esperanza Sound’ (The Inlet of Last Hope). Here, if you look carefully, you can spot sea lions lazing on the rocks and flocks of cormorants and Andean condors.
After a 3-hour cruise along the fjord, during which you will witness a spectacular waterfall nestled among the rocks known as ‘The Virgin Sail’, we will arrive at mount Balmaceda. The Balmaceda and Serrano glaciers cover the sides of this mountain, which rise 6500 feet above sea level.
After disembarking at the docks in Puerto Toro, we stretch our legs with a walk through the beautiful forest area to the foot of the Serrano glacier where you can gaze at its majestic beauty. Later, we will return to the boat to enjoy a cocktail prepared with glacier ice.
The next stop will be at the Perales ranch, where we will have a delicious barbeque lamb grill to recharge our batteries.
The tour finishes with the return journey to Puerto Natales, arriving back at your hotel around 5:30 pm.
