Glacier Grey, Puerto Natales (Torres del Paine)

4.7
#2 of 26 in Parks in Magallanes Region
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. See Glacier Grey and all Puerto Natales (Torres del Paine) has to offer by arranging your trip with our Puerto Natales (Torres del Paine) trip site .

  • Nothing like a calving glacier and seeing the bits and large pieces in the lake. Yes, global warming is real and glaciers are retreating.  more »
  • This was such an awesome place! The glacier was beautiful and sometimes you could hear a "crack" and watch the ice break and drop into the lake. You can hire a boat to have a closer view the glacier. ...  more »
  • Long ago I visited this glacier that has been beautiful in the past but that the speed with which it has lost its structure does not already have the charm of the past. A vwedade hurts and even more so when it profits from a service boat is to visit

  • Maybe less spectacular than the Perito Moreno, but a great boat ride and spectacular views
  • Very good tour! We recommend it!
  • What a pass! Never saw something more beautiful. Travel to visit the glacier for navigation is incredible, is not cheap, but worth the expenditure. Recommended 100 percent visit the glacier.

  • It is a moment where you feel immensely small. See it is a moment of humility, where you are just a weak point in a majestic setting.
