The highlight of Patagonia

Lago Grey is the westernmost of the great lakes within Torres del Paine National Park. Fed by the massive Grey Glacier, the lake might even have some small icebergs floating near its shores. The amazing landscape surrounding the lake is dominated by Cerro Paine Grande, which at 3050m of altitude is the highest mountain in the National Park.

On this fascinating excursion we will drive to the Visitor’s Centre of Lago Grey and then hike along the flat and easy-to-walk moraine that make up the southern shore of the lake. If weather allows, we will enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding scenery, including the massive Cerro Paine Grande.

Weather permitting, we will end the excursion walking to Salto Grande, the famous waterfall spectacularly connecting the waters of Lago Nordenkjöld and Lago Pehoé. After some time to take photos, we will leave the park behind and, crossing the Patagonian ‘pampa’, drive back to Puerto Natales.

Walking information: Trekking in the park over uneven terrain and flat ground.  Count on approx. 5km return on a mostly flat bun uneven surface made of gravel and small pebbles (moraine terrain). Return is via the same way.
