Snow Shoes Hiking
Detailed Itinerary
Day 1: Transfer to Torres del Paine. Hike. Cabins.
Clients should arrive into Puerto Natales the day prior to the trip start day. We can assist with arrangements both private and on the regular bus.

Meet the guide and team in the BlueGreen Adventures office  at 8:00, before setting off in our comfortable transfer vehicle out along the shores of Last Hope Sound towards the jagged snow draped peaks of Torres del Paine.

Our route takes us west for a spectacular drive alongside the turquoise waters of Sarmiento Lake before continuing along the winding roads of the Park with magnificent vistas at every turn.

We will be deciding on a suitable hike depending on the group's preference and the weather conditions. Snow shoes are provided in case of deep snow and we will take full advantage of the light to enjoy some of the Park's greatest views and hikes throughout this dramatic southern landscape crammed with more than its fair share of dazzling natural wonders including piercing granite peaks, pristine lakes and rivers of every shade of blue and the southern ice field itself, a sheet of ice the size of Hawaii.

Plenty of time to photograph and enjoy the views and wildlife before heading back to our waiting vehicle.

Tonight will be spent at the small basic  cabins at the Serrano River.

*Option to upgrade to an authentic intimate Estancia Tercera Barranca located on the eastern perimeters of Torres del Paine.

Lunch and dinner included (wine included with dinner at the cabins). Meals prepared by a chef.

Days 2: Visit Grey Lake and Glacier. Night Cabins.
After breakfast in the cabins we will be driving the short distance to Lake and Glacier Grey where after crossing the small footbridge we will walk through the forest down to Grey Beach. The view that greets us is memorable - the floating icebergs that have calved off the nearby glacier form a surreal contrast against the grey waters of the lake.

Grey Glacier protrudes off the southern icefield and is quite simply a wonder of nature. Measuring 28km in length and covering a total surface area of 270 square km with its frozen walls of crystalline ice towering almost 35 metres high it never ceases to impress.

Plenty of time to enjoy the views before heading back to our waiting vehicle. Lunch in a suitable spot. Afternoon hike to Mount Ferrier a beautiful hike with far reaching views of the Paine mountain range.

Return to cabins for the night. Clients on the 2-day trip will transfer back to Puerto Natales where the trip will end. *Option to upgrade to Estancia Tercera tonight.

All meals included (wine with dinner in cabin). Meals prepared by cook.

Grey Lake Beach
Days 3: Hike to the base of the Towers. Return to Natales.
After breakfast we will be heading east to the trailhead for one of Paine's most famous hikes to the base of the Towers after which the Park is named.

Today's hike is our most challenging as we climb to the base of the granite peaks. This is a round trip hike where we will climb up into the Ascending Valley and through beautiful old growth forests to a rock moraine field beneath the mountains. A final clamber over the moraine with some steep sections will reward us with one of the most spectacular views in the Park.

Weather permitting we will enjoy our trail lunch at this amazing vantage point before hiking back to our waiting vehicle at the trail head.

Return to Puerto Natales where the trip will end.
