Tour Description

**To be booked in conjunction with Wild Patagonia & Southern Explorer Group Tours only**
If you are excited about visiting the Torres del Paine National Park but don’t think you are up to a day of hiking, this alternative ONE DAY plan allows you to see the wonderful Grey Glacier up close from an exclusive catamaran and you won’t even break a sweat.  A private transfer takes you to the Grey Lake for your activity. You return and rejoin the planned itinerary or group the same evening. 

This activity will take place on the first full day within the park and can only be taken in conjunction with Wild Patagonia & Southern Explorer Group Tours only.

If you would like to take part in a walk, we can arrange short walks for your remaining time in the park. Our towers hiking day, we give the entire group an alternative option, including a drive through a section of the park where you can view the towers (from afar), visit a waterfall, enjoying a short hike to cave paintings and cheer on the towers hikers as they return from the day at the top.
