Spectacular full-day excursion to visit the galciers Balmaceda and Serrano, trip full of adventure and the finest scenery southern Chile has to offer.

Itinerary

The Balmaceda Glacier and Serrano Glacier are located inside Bernardo O’Higgins National Park, which is located 31 miles to the Northwest of Puerto Natales and it is part of the Andean mountain range. Visiting the park is the meaning of a wonderful place, untouched by humans. Its access is only by boat, sailing through the Ultima Esperanza Fiord. Its name is owed for being the “Last hope” to find the Strait of Magellan in 1557, for a expedition that came from the Pacific Ocean.
The trip begins in the port of Puerto Bories, and on the way can be seen the building that belonged to “Frigorifico Bories”, which was one of the largest meat packing plants in Patagonia, also can be seen a little colony of Cormorants and a little colony of Sea lions. The flora is dominated by different species of beech trees, Calafate, Chilco and Canelo among others.
The Balmaceda glacier can be seen from the boat, instead to visit the Serrano glacier is necessary to walk for 20 minutes on a path bordering a calving lake originated by the melting of the glacier.
