Torres del Paine – Grey Hike
Spectacular views abound in every direction. Torres del Paine National Park covers an area of 242.242 hectares and features an outstanding combination of lakes, lagoons, waterfalls, glaciers, hills, and peaks, as well as the possibility to observe various kinds of wildlife in their natural habitat.
We depart the pier and drive to Torres del Paine National Park.
Inside the park, the road is surrounded by dozens of lagoons filled with grasses and aquatic birds, contrasting nearby small hills where flocks of guanacos pasture. After passing the Serrano River entrance, the road becomes rocky and traverses many cliffs and pampas (Patagonian steppes) before we arrive in the Grey Lake area to admire the magnificent contrast of mountain, lake, icebergs, and Grey Glacier.
We will drive to Grey Lake beach and start walking along the shore to enjoy views of the icebergs with their deep blue colours. Further along, we encounter the Salto Grande (big waterfall), which forms quiet Pehoe Lake. The visit to Salto Grande is subject to weather conditions. After some time taking photos, we leave the park behind and return to Puerto Natales, driving across Patagonia's deep pampas.
