21 de Mayo ship on Last Hope Sound from Puerto Natales, Chile, South America.
From the docks of Puerto Natales, catch the inexpensive daily cruise to Serrano Glacier on the ship "21 de Mayo" in Chile, South America. Explore the scenic fjord of Last Hope Sound (Seno de Última Esperanza) and walk a fun nature trail to the tongue of the spectacular tidewater glacier. Frequent high winds can sometimes turn back or cancel this day cruise. If the next day's weather forecast is good, book the cruise one day in advance at the dock ? or check for tickets on the morning of departure. If you sleep overnight near remote Serrano Glacier at basic Hostaria Balmaceda (as we did), meals are provided, but no hot shower or bath, just a sink. Pleasant day hikes have views of Serrano Glacier across the fjord and Torres (Towers) to the north. Última Esperanza Sound is an ocean inlet stretching from the mouth of Eberhard Fjord to Monte Balmaceda within Magallanes Basin. Filling a valley carved by ice age glaciers, this inlet is a tidewater river which drains an extensive basin including almost all the surface waters of Torres del Paine National Park through the Serrano River. The foot of South America is known as Patagonia.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
