Day 1 LAGO GREY - PUEBLITO SERRANO
Private transportation will be provided from your hotel 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 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. 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 continue to paddle next to the Paine Massif for 25 km, the length of River Grey until it joins with the clear 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.

Perfect Paddling Patagonia
 
Our three day trip on the Serrano and Grey rivers was a wonderful adventure in awe inspiring wilderness scenery. It is for those with paddling experience or even with good fitness and little paddling experience. We were well looked after by the leaders who ensured we were always safe on the water and well fed and comfortable on land. Our group was 55+ in years! Highly recommended if you like adventure!
