Begin with an early morning transfer to Santiago International Airport for your flight to Balmaceda.
From here, begin your journey south on the famously long Carretera Austral, in which you'll discover Chiguay Lake and Piedra del Conde among a wealth of natural features.
Continue to Cuesta del Diablo, passing by Portazuelo Ibañez, and revel in the sweeping panoramas of Ibañez River Valley and the frosted peaks that surround it as you stand on the steep slopes of Cuesta del Diablo.
Journey onward to Cerro Castillo Village, the vibrant capital of the Commune of Torres del Paine and the gateway to one of the nation's most treasured national parks. Though the paved road ends here, the journey continues south past Murta River before reaching Puerto Rio Tranquilo. A base for the outdoorsy that's quickly gaining popularity, a stop in this village will grant you access to General Carrera Lake, in which its turquoise waters are shared between Chile and Argentina.
From General Carrera Lake, sail to Marble Caves, a series of whimsical calcium carbonate formations, sculpted by the natural forces of wind and waves. The 3 main formations nicknamed the Cathedral, the Chapel and the Cave are designated Nature’s Sanctuary and considered to be a protected natural area.
After your 1.15-hour boat trip, continue south for another 67 km on the Carretera Austral, hugging the pristine shorelines of General Carrera Lake to Puerto Bertrand.
Overnight in your lodge at Puerto Guadal.
