Day 1: Journey to Puerto Toro; kayaking to Balmaceda Glacier
From Puerto Natales (Stubenrauch dock) we will board the "21 de Mayo" boat at 07:30hrs and will head for Mount Balmaceda with our kayaks, where the glaciers of Balmaceda and Serrano come from. During the 3 hour trip across the Ultima Esperanza Fjord you will be able to observe historical sites, fauna and geography that form the unique character of Patagonia.
On our arrival at Puerto Toro, at the Bernard O´Higgins National Park (the largest in the country) we will prepare camp and have lunch. After the camp has been set up, your guide will provide you with safety and paddling instructions. This prepares you for our kayak journey to the Balmaceda Glacier through the Ultima Esperanza Fjord, with its waterfalls and cliffs (3 hrs approx). On returning to camp we will enjoy the sunset over the fjord whilst your guide will prepare dinner for you.

Day 2: Serrano Glacier; goodbye BBQ
The next day after breakfast we will carry the kayaks 100m to the water. On entering the lagoon of the Serrano glacier, in between ice-bergs we will be able to enjoy the morning light in front of the Serrano Glacier until 11:00hrs. After this we will leave the lagoon and pack away the camp ready to board the boat once again and return to Puerto Natales. During the journey we´ll stop off at the tourist complex "Estancia Perales" where you will be served a BBQ "Patagonian style." Arrival at Puerto Natales approximately 17:00 hrs.
