What to Expect What to Expect

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Puerto Natales, Natales, Magallanes y la Antártica Chilena Region, Chile

Your experience begins with pick up at the agreed time from your Hotel located nearby the urban zone of Puerto Natales. After pick up, we will begin to board our navigation to meet incredible landscapes from the Patagonia, glaciers, fjords and amazing wildlife we can appreciate during our trip to Balmaceda and Serrano glaciers. Climb aboard the boat and begin your cruise northwest through Ultima Esperanza Fjord, or ‘Final Hope Fjord,' an inlet bridging Eberhard Fjord and Balmaceda Mountain. The fjord was named by Spanish explorer Juan Ladrillero, who hoped that crossing the sound would take him to the Strait of Magellan. Instead he arrived to find sheer walls of ice blocking his path.

Stop At: Bernardo O'Higgins National Park, Chile

Today, your captain is at the helm for three hours to reach the same glaciers that thwarted Ladrillero. Enjoy a cup of coffee, tea or juice on deck. For something with an extra kick, sip a glass of whiskey or pisco sour mixed with ice broken off from Serrano glacier.

Pass by forests and waterfalls trickling down green hills, and scan the sky for condors. As the boat hugs the coastline, spot dozens of cormorants on rocky outcrops that might be spreading their wings or stretching their slim graceful necks to a soundtrack of ducks and geese squawking nearby. Sea elephants may even lumber out of caves to lounge under the sun.

When you reach the eastern face of Balmaceda Mountain, 6,676 feet (2,035 meters) high, see mists swirling around the ice-capped summit. Disembark for an easy hour-long hike through the forests of Bernardo O'Higgins National Park. Follow your guide to an overlook mere steps away from Serrano glacier — a wide frozen river of ice cascading down a crevice between hills. Then trek to the western side of Balmaceda Mountain and capture views of the massive hanging glacier. Here, sapphire- and turquoise-tinted floes deluge the rocky terrain and end at a lake.

Duration: 3 hours 30 minutes

Stop At: Estancia Perales, Torres del Paine National Park, Natales, Región de Magallanes y de la Antártica Chilena, Chile

Head to local lodging at a traditional cattle ranch, where you’ll tuck into a Magellanic lunch of generous portions, typically featuring a rich savory stew and roasted lamb. (Vegetarian meal available upon request.)

Sample Lunch Menu (subject to change):
• Carbonada (traditional hearty soup with meat and vegetables)
• Roast lamb with potatoes
• Salad
• Dessert
• Wine, soft drinks, water

Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

Pass By: Puerto Natales, Natales, Magallanes y la Antártica Chilena Region, Chile

Finally, with your appetite for delightful sights and food satiated, climb aboard your boat for a speedy 90-minute return ride to Puerto Natales. Enjoy the landscapes during your return trip!
When we arrive to the port, you will take the bus or minivan which will be dropping you off directly at your Hotel in Puerto Natales.
