We make all the necessary stops during the drive for pictures of the mountains and fauna of the park. You arrive to your hosteria by late afternoon.
Day 3: Torres del Paine – Puerto Natales
Today you visit some of the most spectacular viewpoints of this National Park. In the morning, you visit Salto Grande, an impressive waterfall just where the Paine river enters Lake Pehoe. From there, a low difficultly trail leads you to the shores of lake Nordenskjöld. From the shores you can see the whole Paine massif to the south with the French Valley in the center, flanked by Paine Grande (3050 m above sea level). You can spot Paine Grande’s impressive hanging glaciers on one side, and the unique geological formation of the Paine Horns on the other.
In the afternoon, you visit the west end of the park featuring the Grey Lake. An easy and beautiful walk along the south shore leads you to a rocky promontory. Here, you can see the glacier calving down into the lake from the Ice Field on the far side of the lake. In the spring and summer the shore is covered by the icebergs pushed by the wind to this side of the lake. By late afternoon, we leave the park and travel to Puerto Natales (2 hours), a picturesque fishing town on the shores of the Last Hope Sound.

During your trip, you visit Cerro Balmaceda (at the southern end of the Patagonian Ice Field) to appreciate the huge glaciers coming down towards the sea, and the wide variety of flowers in abundance around the area.
