Round-Trip Horseback Ride to Donoso Lookout
- 2 Hour Private Transfer
- 6 Hours, Slow Riding, Trotting and Cantering
- Night at Chile Nativo Riverside Camp (BL-D)
In the morning, your guide and private transfer will pick you up at your hotel in Puerto Natales and take you to the Serrano Area along endless landscapes and Patagonia pampas.
An unexplored valley at the border of Torres del Paine National Park awaits us today.
After meeting our horses and guachos, we will set out on a ride across rivers and through landscapes of lakes and wetlands, while views of the Paine Massif and the glaciers of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field shift alongside us.
At the lookout point of Donoso we’ll stop for lunch and later return via a different path, this time riding along the shores of the Serrano River and past a waterfall of the same name.
As we arrive to our Riverside Camp, a freshly prepared welcome dinner awaits followed by splendid views of the Paine Massif set among the colorful Patagonia evening sky.
Full Day Sea Kayaking Expedition on Grey Lake & Grey River
- 30 Minute Private Transfer
- 4-5 Hours Paddling, 25 km / 15.5 mi
- Night at Chile Nativo Riverside Camp (B-BL-D)
After an early breakfast your transfer will drive you to Grey Lake to meet your kayaking guide.
Here, with views of Paine Grande and Grey Glacier as our morning backdrop, you’ll hear about kayaking safety and paddling techniques.
You’ll paddle Grey Lake for approximately 2 hours, weaving amongst the floating icebergs that have calved from the glacier and been whittled into natural ice sculptures by the wind and sun.
While paddling, take time to look around you: the granite peaks of Paine Grande, Cordon Olguín and Los Cuernos interplay beautifully with the water’s multiple shades of turquoise.
Leaving Grey Lake we’ll begin our descent of Grey River, which snakes through canyons bubbling with rapids and framed by steep rock faces.
Accompanied by views of the imposing Paine Massif, we’ll paddle for 25 km (15.5 miles) down Grey River until it joins the Serrano River. After 4-5 hours of paddling we’ll arrive back at our campsite ready to stretch our muscles and prepare for dinner.

You will explore the less crowded area in the park, the dazzling Laguna Azul – an area abundant in birdlife (watch out for coots, swans, ducks and woodpeckers) and the lagoon offers a great view of the three Towers; mirrored in its blue waters on clear, still days.
