Itinerary
At 08:30 a.m. approx. Pick up at Hotel in Puerto Natales towards Puerto Bories to take the navigation.
The Balmaceda and Serrano Glaciers are located within the Bernardo O'Higgins National Park, which is located 31 miles northwest of the city of Puerto Natales and is part of the Andes mountain range. Visiting it means admiring a majestic place, almost untouched by man. Its access is only by sea, sailing through the Fjord of Last Hope, which owes its name to the "last hope" of finding the Strait of Magellan in 1557, for an expedition that searched for it from the Pacific Ocean.
The trip begins at the Puerto Bories pier, and on the way it is possible to see the buildings belonging to the Bories refrigerator, which was one of the largest meat processing industries in Patagonia, you can also see a colony of Imperial Cormorants , a small colony of Sea Lions and a variety of plants that make up the flora, such as Coigue, Canelo, Lenga, ?ire, Chilco and Calafate among others.
The Balmaceda Glacier can be seen from the ship, however, to visit the Serrano, it is necessary to take a 20-minute walk along a path that borders a small lake caused by the melting of said glacier.
At 15:00 return to Puerto Natales. Transfer to your hotel.
