Balmaceda & Serrano Glacier Navigation

Full day (from Puerto Natales) From CLP $80.000

Tour Description

Enjoy the best navigation through the channels of Last Hope, where you can observe flora and fauna of this wonderful place and enjoy contemplating the beautiful Balmaceda and Serrano Glaciers.

The navigation starts in Puerto Bories located 10 minutes from Puerto Natales. The cruise begins on the Señoret Channell, heading NW towards Mount Balmaceda.

Our first point of interest will be the Bories National Historic Refrigeration Monument, which was founded in 1913 by the Tierra del Fuego Exploitation Society and for more than 60 years it was the most important slaughterhouse in the area. The place is worth visiting because of Its masonry construction, European style and outstanding industrial architecture.
Then we will go to Guanaco Island where sometimes it is possible to observe the small Magellan Dolphins or Toninas.
Next we will get to the Wall of Cormorants through the Margot Farm where we will be able to admire many of these beautful birds just gliding in the air. We will continue the trip to Punta de Lobos where it is possible to see sea lions. Then we will be able to see a waterfall and some cliffs where it is common to see condors.
At each point of interest our boats will stop so that the passengers will be able to enjoy the incredible scenery and feel the unique spirit of Patagonian nature.
The cruise continues to Mount Balmaceda (2035 meters high) where we can appreciate the Balmaceda glacier, then we will disembark in Puerto Toro to begin a one-hour round hike along the shore of the Témpanos lagoon. We will always be accompanied by our bilingual guide.
We will go through a native forest towards the Serrano glacier, where we will enjoy the imposing vegetation and the contrast between the perfectly clear sky and the ice of the sea, next to the Serrano glacier.
We will begin the return and we will arrive at Perales Farm, where we will disembark and offer lunch, which can be grilled meats (lamb) or an alternative menu. The arrival to the city is supposed to be at 5:00 p.m. approximately.
