A private transfer will pick you up at your hotel in Puerto Natales and take you to the Serrano Area.
An unexplored valley at the border of Torres del Paine National Park awaits us today. We’ll 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 Tyndall Glacier we’ll stop for lunch and later return via a different path, this time riding along the shores of the Serrano River and past the waterfall of the same name.
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 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.
An early morning transfer will drive you from Serrano area to Laguna Azul on the border of Torres del Paine National Park. This is 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. Here, we’ll ride our bikes to Laguna Amarga, a lagoon whose waters contrasts with Laguna Azul's in both color and texture. (Its name, Amarga or “sour”, is due to its high pH level, cloudy turquoise color and the distinctive white salty rim at the shoreline.) Highlights along the way to Laguna Amarga include Cascada Paine waterfall and the chance to photograph wildlife and the Park's endlessly changing views.
After this grat biking experience, we’ll take a private transfer back to Puerto Natales.
