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.

Fishing Torres del Paine


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.

While staying here you can get off the beaten track on hiking trails that take you to some of the quieter areas inside and outside of the park.

Equally, you can enjoy some of the most popular day hikes and multi-day hikes, like the 3-Day W Trek or the 5-Day W Trek, while basing yourself in Serrano Village.

There's also the option to stay here during the colder months on the W Trek in Winter trip.

With no public transport serving Serrano Village from Puerto Natales (80 kilometres away) or the rest of the park, it can be a little tricky to get to. As private transfers in the park are costly, we would only recommend staying in the village if you're travelling by car, you've joined a group tour or transfers are already included in your hotel package.

Where to stay

Choose from a number of places to stay that offer the full range when it comes to comfort. From hotels and lodges to glamping and camping, you're sure to find something that will fit the bill.
