The trip was beautiful and the staff very informative, when we could here the information being provided to us, and kind. We were not very impressed with the lunch. It was provided at a lovely location but we felt a bit like school children being ushered into a dining hall.

ITINERARY

We will visit the Serrano and Balmaceda glaciers from the wharf in Puerto Natales at around 08:00 in the morning, sailing next to the coast to go into in the sine surrounded by hills and forests, where if the conditions of the climate allow it, the elephant seals can be seen resting on the rocks and hundreds of cormorants ventilating their extended wings.

After 3 hours of navigation you arrive at Balmaceda hill (2,035 ms), with its summit covered with ice that falls in colossal snow drifts to the sea.
The boat comes near the Balmaceda snowdrift and stops in the Serrano snowdrift, where you stop for a walk in the forest until you reach the border of the lagoon full of icebergs and with a wonderful view of the hills and the Ultima Esperanza sine. Then we´ll make a stop at Perales Ranch for a traditional Patagonian Lamb. The return to the wharf is made bordering the opposite shore of the sine. (Arrival to the wharf at about 17:00 hrs.)
