Marvel at the Paine Massif and the radiant, blue glacial lakes in a 2 hours hike along the Patagonian steppe. This path is also characterized and attractive for the observation of local wildlife. After an approximately 1 hour hike, we will reach a series of cave paintings which date from 10.000 years ago. These paintings were made by the first inhabitants of Patagonia. Afterwards, our transfer will take us to the Nordensköld viewpoint to enjoy the view of the lake of the same name and the east face of the Paine Massif where our local guide will explain the geological characteristics of the Paine mountain range. We will continue our excursion and stop at "Pudeto" area to enjoy the rushing frothing waterfall "Salto Grande". Immediately after, we will start a 2 hour hike (roundtrip) to "Mirador Cuernos", a place of overwhelming beauty and probably one of the most famous spots in Torres del Paine National Park.
At Pehoe campsite we will have lunch, and after having some rest and time to enjoy the view of the lake and the "Cuernos del Paine".
Our tour leads us further to the Grey Glacier sector. At the Grey Lake area it is possible to do a 1 hour hike along the Grey Lake Beach until we reach the Grey Lake's viewpoint. We will first walk through an ancient Lenga forest and then to the Grey beach, from here we will be able to admire the west face of the Paine massif and enjoy the amazing blue hues of the glacial ice. From the viewpoint, it's also possible to see icebergs drifting along the icy waters and at the distance, the Grey Glacier, which is part of the Patagonian Southern Ice Field.
