Full description
Depart from your hotel in Puerto Natales to travel the Señoret Channel and reach the Balmaceda and Serrano mountain glaciers, part of the Bernardo O'Higgins National Park. On this route, you will be able to appreciate the cattle ranches, colony of cormorants, sea lions and condors in fabulous flight over you.

The first view will be of 'El velo de la Virgen' (The Veil of the Virgin), a beautiful waterfall between the large rock walls and cliffs that adorn the landscape. Then, you will stop to appreciate the mountain glacier Balmaceda on a mountain of the same name which is 2,035 meters high and part of the Andes Mountain Range.

You will then continue your navigation to disembark at Puerto Toro pier, where you will make a soft and attractive hike among a coigues and ñirres forest to reach the foot of Serrano glacier. Enjoy its beauty and the occasional detachment of large pieces of ice at the waters of a lagoon formed by the thaws. Return to the boat to delight in a cocktail with ice from the glacier and then move to Estancia Perales, a Patagonian estancia, where a typical regional lunch will be waiting for you.
