Trek to the French Valley, the most beautiful in the park and one of the most unique in the world. It’s surrounded by hanging glaciers (where you can see |*@*| hear the ice calving off at various intervals) and an amphitheater of granite walls and spires. There are amazing views throughout this trek and the further you trek into the valley the better they become! On the way back, you will notice the extraordinary turquoise color of Lake Pehoe (hidden lake in the Tehuelche Indian language). The trekking is 6-8 hrs depending on how far into the valley you want to go (total of 24 km). Overnight at a lodge where you can enjoy a pisco sour in the bar that overlooks Paine Grande

Day 5: Patagonia Region

Trek along the mesmerizing Grey Lake (3-4 hours, 11 KM ) with magnificent views of the Grey Glacier and floating icebergs. Visit the glacier lookout point and its lakeshore for close up views of vibrant-blue icebergs (Paine is a Tehuelche Indian word for "blue"). At lunchtime, travel through the Grey Lake (2 hours), a magic lake surrounded by ice bergs. The boat will go right up to the tip of the glacier. While standing on the deck sipping the crew will serve you a pisco sour served with glacial ice! Overnight at a lodge.

Day 6: Patagonia Region

Your next journey will begin at the Serrrano river sector (located at the southern border of Torres del Paine National Park). Here we will prepare and distribute the kayaks and begin with the safety and paddling instructions. Our guides will recommend the appropriate equipment you will need to take during the trip and the rest of your luggage will be taken directly to Puerto Natales and stored in our office. Paddle for approximately 2 hours across the first section of the Serrano river, this is a calm zone which will gives us the opportunity to see and assess the level and comfort of kayakers.
