    Puerto Natales -  Punta Arenas

    Day 3: Perito Moreno or Navigation to the Balmaceda and Serrano Glaciers?

    For this day we recommend doing any of these excursions, the 2 are very attractive but very different and each one has its pro and cons.

    Perito Moreno: It is an imposing glacier located in Argentina, in which our tour starts from your Hotel in Puerto Natales at approximately 07:30, is really beautiful, but to visit this magical place will have to travel by bus for at least 8 hours (one way and I come back). Also as it is a border crossing you will have to do customs.
    It is worth knowing if you are interested in this excursion to Perito Moreno can see the prices, information and availability do click here

    Navegacion Glaciares Balmaceda y Serrano: Although it is a more passive tour than the Perito Moreno tour, you should travel by boat approximately 6 hours. Like the previous one also is worth the time and the effort required, since the landscapes are phenomenal and includes a lunch with wine and Magallanic lamb.
