Explore the park’s lagoons and lakes with colours ranging from glacial blue to emerald green
Enjoy spectacular views of the stunning Grey Glacier and icebergs in Grey Lake
Visit the village of Villa Cerro Castillo, named after its mountain with steep basalt walls that give it the illusion of a castle
Inside the park, the road is surrounded by dozens of lagoons filled with grasses and aquatic birds that richly contrast nearby small hills where flocks of Guanacos graze.
Our first stop inside the park is at Sarmiento Lake.
Afterwards, we continue to Nordenskjold Lake, which bathes the mountainsides of the Paine range in its emerald green light.
Nordenskjold Lake feeds impetuous Salto Grande waterfall which in turns spills into quiet Pehoe Lake. Here, a 45-minute walk provides good opportunities to capture pictures of Salto Grande.
Our journey continues along the Paine River until we reach the Serrano River area - a peaceful and beautiful part of the park.
We will drive to Grey Lake beach to start walking along the shore and observe colourful deep-blue tinted icebergs. Continue to Cerro Castillo for lunch before returning to Puerto Natales.
This programme is designed so that guests spend a night inside the park, ‘the eighth wonder of the world’, surrounded with impressive scenery and incomparable views.
Enjoy breakfast at the hotel. At agreed time, checkout and departure from the hotel.
The variety of natural beauties of the Torres del Paine National Park will continue to amaze you. Appreciate the most spectacular worldwide Reserve at the end of the world.
The Nordenskjold Lake gives life to the impetuous Salto Grande (big waterfall) forming the quiet Pehoe Lake. You will have a 30 minute walk (400 meters each way) to get closer pictures of the Salto, the waters of the Lake Nordenskjold and the Paine river into the beautiful, turquoise-hued Lake Pehoe.
You'll start at El Salto Grande, an impressive and spectacular waterfall channelling the waters of Lake Nordenskjold and the Paine River into the beautiful, turquoise-hued Lake Pehoé. Your senses will be awakened by the roar of the falling water, the scents and smells of nature and the kaleidoscope of colours on display.
You then follow the trail alongside the mountain giving you stunning views of the legendary Los Cuernos, known as 'The Horns of Patagonia'. Their jagged outline and granite peaks are an awe-inspiring sight and this is a view you won’t forget in a hurry.
