Day 1 Puerto Natales
Arrive in Punta Arenas and transfer to the bus station for the trip to Puerto Natales. Arrive this afternoon, transfer to the hotel, and relax this evening.
Bright and early this morning you will embark on a large catamaran sailing through the ice river of Ultima Esperanza Fjord where waterfalls pour from steep cliffs. Soon the shear walls of Balmaceda Glacier loom above us, accompanied by the booming sound of giant ice blocks falling from the glacier. After lunch, the catamaran begins its return Puerto Natales, but we board zodiacs to continue up river to Serrano Falls. Here we walk around the falls and board another zodiac for the rest of our trip into Torres del Paine. With luck, we’ll have a chance to see seals, sea lions, porpoises, black-necked swans and other Patagonian wildlife. Upon reaching the park headquarters take a private transfer to the EcoCamp. After settling into the EcoCamp, you’ll have time to take in the breathtaking sight of Torres del Paine, take a short hike, or just relax after your adventure!
Passengers can add $120 per person for private transfer from Punta Arenas to Puerto Natales instead of the bus.
