Itinerary

For flight quotes (international and domestic), please contact our partner Exito Travel.  

Before we kick off our multisport tour in Patagonia, you should take a day or two to adjust to local time and recover from your travels, and allow for any flight or luggage delays. You should fly into Punta Arenas airport (PUQ).

In Chile, domestic flights are operated by 3 local airline companies: LatamSky Airline and JetSmart.

We recommend staying at Hotel Diego de Almagro Punta Arenas in the city, which is well-located with lots of restaurants and other facilities just a short walk away.

Suggested Hotel in Punta Arenas:

Official Airport Transfer

The official shuttle company at Punta Arenas Airport is called TeleTrans.

All their shuttle services will drop you off at the hotel or address you are staying in Punta Arenas. 

Our meeting hotel address is AVENIDA CRISTOBAL COLÓN 1290, PUNTA ARENAS.

Upon arrival at Punta Arenas airport, your local guide will be expecting you for a private transfer (3-hour) to Puerto Natales.

After checking-in at hotel, we will have a short hike to Dorotea hill. This place offers one of the best panoramic views of the local area. A truly great way to reach the summit is hiking through forests of calafate bushes and lenga beech trees.

At the top, there is an incredible view over Puerto Natales, with all the mountains and glaciers surrounding the area of the Última Esperanza Fjord.

Accommodation: Vendaval Hotel 
Meals: Box lunch
Hiking time: 3 hours

 

Our day starts with a transfer that will take us to Estancia Lazo. This 13,000-hectare cattle ranch was founded over a century ago. It still operates today beneath striking views of the Paine Massif on the shores of Laguna Verde.

There, we’ll hike into Torres del Paine National Park along a generally flat trail through peaceful stretches of native beech and coihue forests. This area is teeming with wildlife. As you walk, watch for condors and caranchos circling the skies; guanacos grazing on the hills; and woodpeckers, owls, and lesser-known species such as the cachaña (Austral parakeet), peeking out from the leafy trees.

We’ll reach Honda Lagoon, then continue on towards Toro Lake lookout (559 m), with a 360º-degree view over mountains, rivers, lakes and glaciers. Take a moment to identify the Grey, Serrano and Paine Rivers, Serrano Valley, Mount Balmaceda and the Geike and Tyndall Glaciers. Finally, we will make our descent to Weber bridge, where a transfer will take us to our campsite.

Accommodation: Riverside Dome Camp 
Meals: Breakfast, box lunch, and dinner
Hiking time: 5 hours
Hiking distance: 13 kilometers / 8 miles

 

In the morning, we will drive towards the Serrano Area, along endless landscapes and Patagonia pampas. An unexplored valley at the border of Torres del Paine National Park awaits us today.

After meeting our horses and guachos, we will set out on a ride across rivers and through landscapes of lakes and wetlands. We will have views of the Paine Massif, and the glaciers of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field alongside us.

After lunch at the lookout point of Tyndall Glacier, we’ll then return via a different path. This time, we’ll ride along the shores of the Serrano River and waterfall.

As we arrive at our Riverside Camp, a freshly prepared welcome dinner awaits followed by splendid views of the Paine Massif set among the colorful Patagonia evening sky.                                   

Accommodation: Riverside Dome Camp 
Meals: Breakfast, box lunch, and dinner
Horseback ride time: 6 hours (slow riding, tortting and cantering)

 

After an early breakfast, we will go towards Grey Lake and meet our kayak guide.

With views of Paine Grande and Grey Glacier as our morning backdrop, we’ll hear about kayaking safety and paddling techniques.

Afterwards, we’ll paddle Grey Lake for approximately 2 hours, weaving amongst the floating icebergs that have calved from the glacier and whittled into natural ice sculptures by the wind and sun. While paddling, take time to look around you: the granite peaks of Paine Grande, Cordon Olguín and Los Cuernos interplaying beautifully with the water’s multiple shades of turquoise.

When leaving Grey Lake, we’ll begin our descent of Grey River, which snakes through canyons bubbling with rapids and framed by steep rock faces. Accompanied by views of the imposing Paine Massif, we’ll paddle for 25 kilometers (15,5 miles) down Grey River, until it joins Serrano River.

After 4-5 hours of paddling, we’ll arrive back at our campsite ready to stretch our muscles and prepare for dinner.

Accommodation: Riverside Dome Camp
Meals: Breakfast, picnic lunch, and dinner
Paddling time: 4-5 hours
Paddling distance: 25 kilometers / 15,5 miles

 

Today, an early morning transfer will drive us from the Serrano area to Laguna Azul on the border of Torres del Paine National Park. This area is abundant in bird life (watch out for coots, swans, ducks and woodpeckers). In addition, the lagoon offers a great view of the three Towers mirrored in its blue waters on clear, still days.

There, we’ll ride our bike to Laguna Amarga, a lagoon whose waters contrast with Laguna Azul in both color and texture. Highlights along the way to Laguna Amarga include Cascada Paine waterfall and the Park’s endlessly changing views.

Finally, we’ll take a private transfer (2-hour) back to Puerto Natales where our journey ends.

Accommodation: Vendaval Hotel
Meals: Breakfast and box lunch
Biking time: 3 hours

 

After breakfast, we will take a private transfer (3-hour) to Punta Arenas Airport (PUQ) to board your flight on time.

End of our services.

Meals: Breakfast

Difficulty

Easy/Low: You don’t live for hiking, but you definitely love to spend time in nature. These hiking tours are appropriate for all people and suitable for older adults in good health with overall good mobility, who are comfortable participating in up to 3 hours hiking per day.

Itinerary Modifications

Slight itinerary modifications might occur due to weather and or road conditions, or force majeure.

Weather notes

We suggest visiting the web for current conditions in Chile and doing your own research on this topic. www.meteochile.cl/ or www.accuweather.com

The vast unbroken stretch of ocean to the west and south of the South American continent leaves the Patagonian Andes very exposed to the saturated winds that circle the Antarctic landmass. Also, the influence from the strong marine currents and Southern Patagonian Ice field make the weather hard to predict.

In Torres del Paine, in spring or early summer, fine weather may deteriorate almost without warning, bringing rains and eventually snow. Even in summer (December to march) you should come prepared to find cold, strong winds (up to 130 km/hr) and rainfalls.

The summer’s average temperature is 11ºC / 52ºF (24ºC max, 2ºC min). Rest assured, however, that just as quickly as the weather turns nasty, it can become pleasantly warm!

Night-time temperatures will most likely range from –1°C to -5°C (30s and 40s F) depending on the weather.
