Bernardo O'Higgins National Park

An amazing boat trip to discover the incredible world of the fjords, observing native wildlife, visiting the Balmaceda and Serrano glaciers.

From the pier of Puerto Bories, you start the catamaran sailing through the Ultima Esperanza Fjord to the Balmaceda and Serrano glaciers. On the way you can see beautiful views of mountains, waterfalls, cattle ranches and Patagonian birds. After approximately 3 hours of navigation, you first visit the Balmaceda glacier which you can admire from the ship. Then the boat arrives at Puerto Toro where a stop is made to disembark and go for a short walk through a leafy forest of “Coihues” and “Ñirres” to get to the feet of the majestic Serrano glacier. The boat returns from the Serrano glacier to Puerto Natales.
