Your adventure begins on the shores of Grey Lake, located in Torres del Paine National Park. While enjoying the view of Paine Grande and Grey Glacier, your guide will give a brief safety explanation and instructions for paddling efficiently. You will navigate the lake for approximately 1.5 hours, paddling among big pieces of ice that have broken from Grey Glacier. These icebergs are scattered throughout the lake and are sculpted into incredible shapes by the wind and sun, before being pushed to the shores of the lake.
During the entire navigation, we will have an amazing view of the magnificent Paine Massif; including Paine Grande, the Olguin Range, and Los Cuernos (The Horns of Paine). These mountains, together with the multiple tones of grey water, make for a perfect contrast with the enormous walls of granite and sedimentary rock.
After paddling in Grey Lake, we will begin the descent of Grey River. The river serpents through deep canyons with steep rock faces, creating sections of rapids that are exciting and entertaining.
We will have the opportunity to appreciate many different species of aquatic birds that inhabit the river. We will continue to paddle next to the Paine Massif for 15 Miles, the length of Grey River until it joins with the turquoise water of the Serrano River. After paddling for 4 – 5 hours, the adventure comes to an end at Serrano Village.
“My wife and I wanted to travel through Chile, Bolivia and Peru and were slightly daunted by the logistics of organising such a varied trip.John Resse, USA
Chris was incredibly helpful not only mapping out the most exciting and engaging trip, but also using his extensive personal knowledge of the best things to do. They were reassuringly efficient in organising the trip, monitoring how we were doing during the trip and making adjustments to improve the trip.Tracy Williams, UK
Chris’s passion and enthusiasm encouraged us to do things we wouldn't have thought to do, which gave us fantastic memories of the trip of a lifetime.”Tony Thomas, USA
