Your excursion begins by navigation on Grey Lake up-close to the Grey Glacier - stopping to admire its textures, lines, and blue hues. Disembarking at Refugio Grey, you will meet your professional guide where you will then take a rubber boat transfer to the small island known as Nunatak in order to access the ice safely. After walking on the island for about 1 hour, your guide will help you to adjust your equipment correctly and comfortably. Prepared with an ice axe, crampons, helmet and harness (all included for you) - you will begin this incredible adventure walking for about 2.5 hours on the Grey Glacier observing its rivers, cracks, lagoons and tunnels. Enjoy the views of Paine Grande mountain and surrounding peaks before finishing this trek and crossing back to Refugio Grey. Once finished with your excursion, enjoy your box lunch and views of the area before boarding the navigation back to the shores of the Grey Lake where you will meet your driver who will take you back to Puerto Natales.
*Please Note: You must be in very good shape for this excursion as the 1 hour hike to reach the glacier is challenging. If you have any physical problems such as bad knees, please consider the option that this is not the right excursion for you. It is required that you have hiking boots with ankle support, gloves, and sunglasses to complete this excursion. You will not be permitted without these safety requirements.
