Have you ever imagined being so close to an iceberg that you can even touch it? This is a dream of many fulfilled by few. But here in Patagonia everything is possible. Get to know Torres del Paine National Park from a privileged view paddling down the river.
We pick up at your hostal or hotel in Puerto Natales at 7:00 hrs to go to the Gray Lake sector, at Torres del Paine national park (if you are somewhere in the park we can pick you up there).
At the Playa Grey bank, we will start the instruction to have a conformable and safe navigation. We began the excursion from Grey Lake mouth where it´s possible to paddle alongside stunning icebergs that are blown by the wind right after they separate from the glacier. We have Macizo Paine and the west mountain range as landscape, highlighting also the famous Cuernos del Paine.
After enjoying the lake navigation and mastered the kayak, we will start to go down through the Grey River. From now on it´s going to be an adventure passing through rapids and cannons from start to finish, followed by numerous turns overlooking Sierra del Toro. We will have a break close to Grey Bridge where we will enjoy a great Box lunch, we will continue paddling until we find the confluence with Serrano River, The place when the grey waters full of sediments merge together with the clear waters coming from Lago del Toro. We finish our adventure at Pueblo Serrano where we pick up a transfer to go back to Puerto Natales.
Important: please bear in mind that from the beginning to the end of the kayak trip the itinerary may have to be modified owing, of course, to the famous Patagonian wind. If the wind is too strong, it will not be possible to enter to the Iceberg Zone. If this is the case, we will only paddle the whole Grey River (which is sheltered from wind).More...
