Private transportation will be provided from your hotel/hostel to the shores of Grey Lake, located in Torres del Paine National Park. The journey will carry you 110 km north or Puerto Natales via the new road, which provides southern access to the park. Before beginning the adventure on the river, we will take time to enjoy a delicious snack while admiring the beautiful wilderness that surrounds Grey Lake. While enjoying the view of Paine Grande and Glacier Grey, our guide will give a brief explanation of safety and instructions for paddling efficiently. You will navigate the lake and river for approximately 1.5 hours, all the while paddling through floes of ice that have descended from Glacier Grey. These icebergs are scattered throughout the lake and are sculpted into incredible shapes by the wind and sun, before being pushed to the shores of the lake. During the entire navigation, we will have an amazing view of the magnificent Paine Massif; including Paine Grande, the Cordillera Olguin, and Los Cuernos (The Horns of Paine). These mountains, together with the multiple tones of turquoise water, make for a perfect contrast with the enormous walls of granite and sedimentary rock.

After paddling in Grey Lake, we will begin the descent of Grey River. The river serpents through deep canyons with steep rock faces, creating sections of rapids that are exciting and entertaining. We will have the opportunity to appreciate many different species of aquatic birds that inhabit the river, including the peculiar Pato Anteojillo (Spectacled Duck) and Pato Cortacorrientes (Torrent duck). We will continue to paddle next to the Paine Massif for 25 km, the length of Grey River until it joins with the turquoise water of the Serrano River. After paddling for 3/4 hours, the adventure comes to an end at Serrano Village, where we will provide you with a lunch box. Private transportation is provided for your return to Puerto Natales.
