We stayed in Puerto Natales as our base for visiting Patagonia and the town is located on this large, scenic channel or fjord. All the local hotels provide boat tours to visit glaciers, colonies of cormorants, a salmon nursery and many waterfalls that spill into...More

Navigating the Patagonian fjords will undoubtedly be a memorable experience as it was for us. The boat rides offered from Puerto Natales will take you on the same path that some 460 years ago the Spaniard explorer, Juan Ladrillero, sailed in search of the occidental...More

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....More

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

Sorry, we didn't go hiking on this glacier. We walked along the beach. Got to the location by renting a vehicle and driving there ourselves. Wish I could be of more help
