Day 1 Drive to the park – Round trip hike to Las Torres lookout point
Early in the morning (7AM) we will drive to Torres del Paine National park. We begin our first full day trek, heading to the base of the Towers lookout point following the Ascencio River before entering the Ascencio Valley. Our walk will be uphill for one hour, stopping to observe the first glimpses of the valley and panoramic views of the Lake Nordenskjold. During the following 2 hours, we’ll walk through unbelievable forests of tall deciduous beech (Nothofagus Pumilio) and waterfalls, and then continue ascending through a huge terminal moraine up to a photographic view point (900m). From here we will be surrounded by three giant granite towers (2850m) and a lagoon with slurry waters resulting from glacial erosion. We will stop here for lunch, taking our time to enjoy this astonishing scenery, before our descent returning along the same path back to the transfer. We drive to the west side of the Park going around Almirante Nieto Mountain (2750 M) with Nordenskjold Lake at its base, and all the way to the Serrano river area where we lodge in a cozy cabin with great views to the Paine Mountain range.

We will make a short, flat walk, through a mature beech forest with possible sightings of Chilean flickers, austral parakeets or torrent ducks. We will cross a stony beach to arrive at a view point on a peninsula from where we can see deep blue icebergs surrounded by forests In the afternoon we start a hike to the Pingo Valley for a walk to the “Cascada los Salmones” where we’ll stop to take in the view before returning back along the same trail, with a chance to find the elusive Huemul (Andean Deer).

You will navigate the lake and river for approximately 2 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 Spectacled Duck and 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 4/5 hours, the adventure comes to an end at Serrano Village, where we will take a transfer back to Puerto Natales.

Kayak, Horseback riding and Trekking. Everything was top notch
 
Chile Nativo introduced Southern Patagonia to me in a way that will forever endear the area to my heart. All of my experiences made the area even more magical than it already is. I sincerely and enthusiastically recommend Chile Nativo for anyone wanting an extraordinary trip to Southern Patagonia, Chile.

Everything was top notch. I have nothing but the best to say about my experience. Armando is like the superman of guides. He does it all and with a goucho grin. He was excellent and I felt very well taken care of.
