BALMACEDA & SERRANO GLACIERS

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 and enjoying the most famous dish of the region: the lamb barbecue.

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 in direction to Estancia Perales, one of the most beautiful cattle ranches in Patagonia. On the way, we invite you to enjoy a delicious Whisky with millennial ice from the Serrano glacier! At Estancia Perales, a typical lunch of lamb barbecue (“Asado de Cordero”) is served. The excursion returns to Puerto Natales around 5.30 pm.
