Sailing to the Grey Glacier and Touring the Paine Massif
This excursion takes you through the Torres del Paine National Park to the western area, with a full overview of the main sites of interest. You’ll be amazed by the monolithic, unforgiving outline of the Paine Massif’s distinctive ‘horns’, just as jaw-dropping up close as you would imagine. The Macizo del Paine, as it’s known in Spanish, is made of granite, which playfully reflects the constantly-changing Patagonian sunlight and nearby waters. Be sure to have your camera to hand, as you won’t want to miss a single shot of this amazing place.
Afterwards, we’ll pass through Nothofagus woodland to reach the beach on Grey Lake, where you can spot large ice floes floating in the water. Here we board the catamaran and sail out towards the Grey Glacier, surrounded by the impassive peaks of the Paine mountain range. You’ll be awestruck by the 19 kilometer-long ice formation, and even more amazed to find that there is an island in the middle of the glacier!
