Setting the scene

Serrano village, or 'pueblito' Serrano, sits on the southern boundary of Torres del Paine National Park on the banks of Serrano River which runs 38 kilometres long, beginning its course where the Grey River ends and reaching its destination at Ultima Esperanza Fjord. Nestled between mountains, lakes and pampas, this village is a quiet sanctuary within the park. Wake to watch the sunrise light up the Paine Massif from your peaceful riverside lodging.

Things to do

The Serrano River sector is a hive of activity, drawing in visitors from all corners of the globe for its world-class fly fishing, kayaking, horseback riding and hiking.

Fly fishing

Serrano River is famed for its salmon and trout-rich waters so you're in the perfect place for fly fishing. From your riverside lodging you're just a hop, skip and a jump away from all the best spots.

Kayaking

You can do multi-day kayaking trips starting in the national park that head down the Grey and Serrano Rivers and stay overnight at Serrano Village as it's the perfect stop off en route to Ultima Esperanza Fjord. Paddle past icebergs of varying hues of blue and float along as you take in some of the most stunning scenery.

Horseback riding

Let your trusty steed lead you across the pampas, along the riverbank, through Lenga forest and up the mountainside to viewpoints looking out to the majestic Paine Massif. Several of the hotels here offer horseback excursions led by local gauchos.
