7:30: Departure in our vehicle from Puerto Natales to the Serrano sector, located in Torres del Paine National Park (if you are already in the park, we will pick you up from an agreed location)
10:30: On the bank of the Serrano River we will initiate the instruction to ensure a safe and comfortable trip. We will load the kayaks with the necessary equipment and with your luggage. If you have too much (more than a big bag per person) we’ll take it to Puerto Natales where it will remain safe in our offices until your return.
12:00: The adventure begins. We will paddle to the Serrano fall (a beautiful cascading rapid), where a short walk (200 metres approximately) and carrying the kayaks will allow us to avoid the waterfall. * Please bear in mind that from the beginning to the end of the kayak trip the itinerary may have to be modified owing, of course, to the famous Patagonian wind..
15:00: We will leave the Serrano River and start paddling upstream along the Tyndall River. Sometimes the guide will have to drag your kayak on the water, attached to his own because of the fast current and the shallowness of the water in some parts of the river.
16:30: A beautiful lake will be the first reward for having paddled up the Tyndall.
18:30: If the wind permits, we will be able to paddle across the lake to a comfortable sandy beach, your tiredness will be forgotten when this place fills you with satisfaction.
19:30: A delicious dinner with a magnificent view, the virgin and unaltered Patagonia.
08:00: A complete breakfast will give us the energy to paddle to the Tyndall glacier.
