What You Can Expect

Balmaceda and Serrano Glaciers Sightseeing Cruise from Puerto Natales

Take a hike at Bernardo O'Higgins National Park and admire Serrano glacier!

Greet your guide at a central Puerto Natales location and climb aboard your comfortable minivan. Select private hotel pickup to enjoy the convenience of direct transportation from your hotel doorstep. 

Climb aboard your luxurious boat and set sail northwest through the impressive Ultima Esperanza Fjord, a natural inlet named the ‘Last Hope’ due to its impenetrable nature. Relax during a scenic three-hour sail, ensuring you take advantage of the open onboard bar. Sip steaming coffee and refreshing soft drinks or indulge with a warming whiskey and pisco sour cocktail, chilled using ice from the Serrano glacier. 

Scan the sky for elegantly gliding condors and marvel at the spectacular beauty of verdant forests and roaring waterfalls. Observe the rocky crevices of the coast for cormorants, graceful birds that inhabit this beautiful area, and scour the sea for lumbering sea elephants. 

Arrive at mist-shrouded face of the Balmaceda Mountain and disembark for a moderate one-hour hike through the lush greenery of the forest. Enter the parameters of Bernanodo O’Higgins National Park and follow your guide to a visionary vantage point; gasp as your eyes encounter the splintered peaks of the Serrano Glacier, marveling at the frozen witchery of the natural landmark. See turquoise-tinted hues and rugged rocks before heading to a rustic ranch to re-energize with a delicious lunch. 

Pleasure your palate with a rich savory stew or tender roasted lamb (vegetarian meals available upon request) and absorb the authentic decorations of the restaurant. Sated, return to the boat for the tranquil cruise back to the Puerto Natales, where the tour concludes.
