This excursion truly lives up to its name by giving guests the fullest introduction to Torres del Paine National Park in the shortest amount of time. The journey towards the heart of the park includes stops in the most important and attractive lookout points, brief walks towards some of the most memorable sites within the park, as well as the chance to participate in an incredible sailing experience to observe the Balmaceda and Serrano glaciers. The stops and visits include Puente Negro (Black Bridge), Nordenskjöld Lookout, Sarmiento Lookout, Lake Pehoé and Salto Grande waterfall.
After enjoying a tradicional lunch, guests have the opportunity to sail along the River Serrano towards Mount Balmaceda and visit the largest national park in Chile, Bernardo O’Higgins. During this incredible adventure on a zódiac, where the National Park’s currents join together and flow towards the Pacific Ocean, you will be able to observe the Tyndall and Balmaceda glaciers. The sailing expedition also includes a 1.5 hour stop in the area surrounding the Serrano glacier, a place from which you can walk through evergreen forests for 15 minutes to an hour in order to take in an unbeatable view of the glacier. The return trip departs from the same place.
The navigation takes about 4 to 5 hours (including the walks) and is offered by an external company, therefore, we don´t take any responsibility for cancellations due to weather conditions or technical issues.
*The sailing trip is optional and not included as part of the excursion rate, except for guests participating in our all-inclusive programs. The zódiac is a vessel built for a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 16 people.
