There are too many reasons to be listed to justify your next trip to Chilean Patagonia. Boasting 80% of the glaciers in South America, the stunning Torres del Paine National Park and the largest ice field in the Southern Hemisphere outside Antarctica, Chile is a traveler's dream that this 3-day travel extension will fulfil. Board a full day cruise and sail past the Balmaceda and Serrano glaciers, two giants among the 356 glaciers of Patagonia. Add to that a compulsory visit of Chile's most popular nature reserve, the Torres del Paine National Park. The greatest of all 6 Patagonian National Parks. Torres del Paine is famous for its 3 granite horn-shaped peaks, its countless fjords, lakes and waterfalls and its elegant guanacos. On your full-day tour, you will visit the cave of the extinct mylodon, reflect upon the calm waters of Lake Sarmiento, look into the distance over the Laguna Amarga, spot rainbows shooting across the Salto Grande emerald waterfall and marvel by the shores of Lake Pehoe. Your adventure-filled day will end on the remote Grey beach with unmatched views of the Grey glacier. This short tour is made for anyone who loves empty steppes, dizzying mountain peaks, wildlife, glaciers and icefields.
