Day 1 - Full day horseback ride to Tyndall Glacier Lookout point
Early in the morning a private transfer will pick us up in Puerto Natales to drive us to the Serrano village in the Administration area. After leaving our stuff, we will start our adventure riding to an unexplored valley at the border of Torres Del Paine national park. We cross several rivers and go through a landscape filled with lakes and wetlands, constantly being surprised by the changing views of the Paine massif and the last glaciers of the Southern Ice Field. Will get to a lookout point of Tyndall Glacier and we will ride back on a different path following the shore of the Serrano river with great views of the Paine mountains and we will make a short stop at the Salto del Rio Serrano, a great waterfall.
(2,5 hrs by transfer, 6 hours, slow riding, trotting and cantering) (B-BL-D) (Night at Mountain hut or Hotel).

Day 2 - Full day Sea Kayaking at Lake Grey & Grey River
Early in the morning we will take a transfer all the way to Lago Grey. 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 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 our accommodation.
(30 minutes by transfer, 4-5 hours paddling, 25 KMS., 1 hour by transfer) (B-BL-D) (Night at Mountain Hut or Hotel).

Day 3 - Round trip hike to Las Torres lookout point
We begin our 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 to then begin our descent, along the same path down to the estancia Las Torres, located at the mountain's plateau where we will take a transfer back to Puerto Natales. .
(8-10 hours hike, 18 KMS, 2 hours by private transfer) (B-BL).

(WMS) Patagonia Winter Tour 3d
 
The activities in the trip were amazing and were organized very well. The order was perfect and the level of difficulty was as well. I could not have enjoyed this trip more except if it was longer!

Rodrigo was our tour guide from July 4-7th through Patagonia Sur. He was extremely knowledgeable, kind, and helpful. This was the most amazing experience ever.

This was one of the most memorable, challenging, and amazing experiences of my life. I am thankful we found Chile Nativo to tour with.
