A great addition to any W Trek or Full Circuit, a half day kayak at Glacier Grey can easily be added to many trips and will give you a taste of kayaking in a beautiful setting. You kayak from the beach near Refugio Grey up to the face of the glacier.
If you are looking for something a little more challenging then why not kayak the Grey River from Lago Grey to Serrano Village. Paddling amongst the ice floes that have calved off of Glacier Grey and admiring the Paine Range before flowing along with the river.
Day Kayak Trips
Multi-Day Trips on the Rio Serrano
One of the best places to go kayaking is the Rio Serrano and its tributaries, along the border of the park, where you'll paddle the fast-flowing waters of the Serrano right up to the impressive hanging Serrano Glacier,camp out under the stars on the banks of the river, and eventually emerge in the Last Hope Sound, which connects the waterways of the park to the nearby town of Puerto Natales.
If you are active and keen to try kayaking then the Rio Serrano is a great place to give it a go on a 2 or 3 day trip. More experienced kayakers can add additional more challenging stretches up some of the tributaries such as Geike and Tyndall.
Multi Day Trips

This a more technical route, for fairly experienced kayakers, but paddling among the ice floes calved off Glacier Grey, and travelling 15 miles alongside the Paine Massif, through rapids and past glaciers to the icebergs on the Serrano Lagoon, is…
Kayak Expeditions in the Fjords
Intermediate and experienced kayakers can explore the Fjords North of Puerto Natales using a mothership as a base, and kayaks to access remote corners of Patagonia that few people get to see. You will see sea lions and sea birds, and paddle up to enormous glaciers as they dip into the sea.
Our operators are expert kayakers and if you're looking for a challenging adventure in unchartered waters then an expedition could certainly be put together for you.
You've got the Paine massif behind you and you're basically riding down the stream of glacial meltwater until Last Hope Sound, then a few hundred yards of portage and you're kayaking between glaciers in a little lagoon.
