Pickup in your hotel in Puerto Natales or Torres del Paine:
Your trip will begin at Grey Lake sector, here we will prepare and distribute the kayaks and begin with the safety and paddling instructions. Our guides will help to recommend the appropriate equipment you will need to take during the trip and the rest of your luggage will be taken directly to Puerto Natales and will be stored in our office. Once at the Grey Lake area we will carry the kayaks approximately five minutes to the beach on Grey Lake. We will have three hours to enjoy the magic of paddling around the icebergs that have broken away from the glacier and we will be in awe at the unique views of the Paine mountains and their impressive granite walls. After we have seen the icebergs we will have a short stop for a lunch before we continue with our adventure. We will have a relaxing time paddling the kayaks down the Grey River, enjoying the unique views of the Paine mountains in all their splendor. The experience will finish where the Grey River meets with the Serrano River. Here our van will be waiting to take us to camping Serrano. Dinner and first night of camping.
This day start with one hour paddling across the first section of the Serrano river, this is a calm zone and gives us the opportunity to see and assess the level and comfort of kayakers during paddling. The first team activity will take place on arrival at a small waterfall in the river and we will carry the kayaks roughly 100 meters. After that we will continue paddling alongside National Park lands & privately owned lands and in these we will see the typical cold forest vegetation of Magallanes & the associated fauna. We will also be able to observe from a distance, the glaciers of the Southern Patagonian ice field. At the end of the day, the encounter with the “Ultimo Esperanza” fjord always offers a touch of adrenaline with its waves.
Finally we ́ll arrive at Puerto Toro (Bernardo O ́higgins National Park), our camp base here is in middle of the forrest with a beautiful view of Serrano glacier.
With an early start, we will carry the kayaks 100m to the lagoon of the Serrano glacier so that we can paddle in & amongst the icebergs until 11:00am, we will have enough time to pack away the camp, before boarding the boat, which departs at 13:00 (either the 21 de Tonina catamaran). We will stop off in a local ranch to enjoy a farewell BBQ. Arrival at Puerto Natales will be 18:00 hrs approx.
