Glacier Grey, Puerto Natales (Torres del Paine)

4.6
#2 of 18 in Parks in Magallanes Region
Geologic Formation Nature / Park
See the tip of the expansive Patagonian ice fields at Glacier Grey. Flowing towards a lake of the same name, the glacier creates an imposing ice wall, which you can view from aboard a tour boat. Reserve tickets for your trip in advance, as spots sell out quickly and it's difficult to visit the glacier as an independent traveler, unless you're willing to hike in. If you do choose to embark on the trek, you can camp at grounds near the glacier and enjoy stunning views when you wake up the next morning.

  • We meet the Lago Grey and the beauty of the glacier is impressive. Its grandeur and monumentality are more than mere words can describe. Blue in color and nuances and the Park which is home to the Lake and the glacier is impeccably well maintained. Much better than the big cities and their crowded malls, this place raises the spirit and makes the visit unforgettable. Lodging in hotel facing the glacier completes an experience that should be experienced by all. I went and I want to go back, and I highly recommend.

  • While there was no many glaciers, road and snow makes everything magical. One for time to take pictures and enjoy the landscape. You should go early and well informed of laa road conditions.

Where to stay in Puerto Natales (Torres del Paine)

Despite Puerto Natales' tourist-centric approach, accommodations remain as low-key as the town itself, and many backpackers and trekkers opt to stay in the numerous small lodges and hostels here. These shared spaces feature extremely basic facilities, though combined with cozy common areas and the friendliness of family-run establishments. Many of these hostels are also more than willing to arrange travel if you want to set out into the mountains. As in many of the nation's outdoor-adventure hubs, Puerto Natales' lodging options tend to offer lower rates during the low season.
