The all day trip is worth for the money it costs. Many animals and gletchers Balmaceda and Serrano make your trip unforgetable. The dinner in one of the farms on the bank of Ultima Esperanza is rich and there is enough different sorts of meat. Even if the weather wasn´t nice, teh pictures we made are real beautiful.

I went to the day tour of "navegacion" which also included a great (delicious) lunch at Estancia Perales. It was a very nice day. I loved the "navegacion" and being by the "glaciar" - it was really an amazing experience. Be prepared for cold weather!

Last Hope Bay is a long arm of the Pacific which swings by Puerto Natalis and goes miles up to the base of the mountains. A spectacular trip from The Singular to the Cerrano glacier

The strait of Ultima Esperanza leads to the Balameda Glacier, very spectacular as it creeps down the mountain toward the waters of the strait. The boat ride from Puerto Natales was several hours long and the boat was packed with mostly day-trippers, many of them Chilean, I think. Seals can be seen in caves just above the water line and...

Book it with Punta Alta or 21 de Mayo. The only companies doing daily navigation to there! The... More

Something about this just tugs at your heartstrings. The expanse of blue water, to know its name means The last Hope, the tall peaks surrounding it and all the glaciers feeding it, this is no ordinary water body! There are boating options available and a few upmarket hotels overlooking it from really near, plus some interesting seating and play areas... More

We took a boat trip early one morning to the Bernardo O'Higgins National Park to see the Balmaceda and Serrano Glaciers. It was a lovely way to spend the day. On the way up the fjords we passed some wildlife and smaller glaciers. Our catamaran took us to the park where we disembarked and walked up near to, the glacier... More
