Glacier Grey, Puerto Natales

(4.6/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • the view of that glacier and the trek on ice was the best experience in Patagonia. It's really breathtaking!  more »
  • As they say, a place that you should go. Awesome in every way. Wonders you great nature and also feel shame for all the damage that we directly or indirectly to the planet. You have to be prepared to walk a lot but it is not impossible to reach. Take some time to enjoy it and leaving behind the stress of other tourists. Thanks God for the opportunity and the view and stay with the image, air, wind, light, and everything that surrounds you. Not to be missed.
