Balmaceda and Serrano Glacier
Navigating the Last Hope Fjord is one of the excursions that you cannot miss if you come to Patagonia. The departure begins from the pier, where you meet very early at 6:30 am to set sail towards the Bernardo O’Higgins National Park. During the navigation, the guides tell you about the history of the first navigators and the first settlements in the surroundings. Through this navigation, it is possible to see part of the fauna that characterizes the Fjord; like sea lions, cormorants and sometimes even condors. When the first destination is reached; Balmaceda Glacier, it is possible to observe it very close on its wall, from the boat. The tour continues in direction of Puerto Toro, to see the Serrano Glacier. Once you have arrived there, a 30-minute trek begins along a marked path, surrounded by notros, coigues and ñirres forest. You will stop in the look out where you can have a panoramic view of the glacier, and after a few minutes will begin the return to the boat. Upon returning, they will stop at a typical estancia where you can have a typical Estancia lunch, the lamb. After rest, we start to return to Puerto Natales in the afternoon (The return can be by boat or by land, depending on conditions).
