This unforgettable tour allows you to travel through the routes of Torres del Paine national park, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and known as the Eighth Wonder of the World. You can enjoy the main viewpoints and attractions of this natural park, unique in the world for its particular flora, fauna and the variety of its landscapes.
The excursion starts early from Puerto Natales driving towards the border town of Cerro Castillo. It then sets off for a stop at the viewpoint of Lago Sarmiento, the largest lake of the park. When arriving at the Laguna Amarga gate, there is an excellent panoramic view of the towers del Paine before entering the park.
The journey continues to the viewpoint of Lago Nordenskjold, after which there is a 30 to 45 minutes stop to walk to the Salto Grande waterfall, with a magnificent view of the mountain range and of Lago Pehoe.
Then the tour heads towards the Lago Grey area for an optional one-hour walk (approximately), passing through a native lenga forest and reaching the beach of the same name. From there, you can admire the west face of the Paine Massif and the intense blue tones of the icebergs coming from Glacier Grey, which is part of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field. Here, there is free time to have lunch at a cafeteria or you can take your own picnic.
