Torres del Paine

New to Torres Del Paine - need idea

I'll arrive from 12 - 18 April in P Arenas. I prefer to see Glacier (if possible without Trekking) but back to P Natales every day and only sight seeing (incl. to be close to the Glacier/iceberg of e.g. Grey, P Moreno, Balmaceda or Serrano). Is this a right way to spend 5 days in South patagonia? or should I take a trek? Thanks in advance. regards, William (Note: any special offer for tour package during April/Easter shoulder season)?

There is a nice trip by boat from P natales to the Balmaceda Glacier. One day starts in the morning at 8:00 am from P Natales and comes back at ca. 6 pm to PNat. It is expensive but if you like glaciers you will love it (66.000 CLP). Serrano is close to Balmaceda. Perito Moreno is close to El calafate (not to Puerto Natales). El calafate is in Argentina and the bus trip from Pnat to Cala takes ca 7 hours. in torres del paine you could take a boat trip to the Grey glacier, but in this case you have to stay at Hosteria Lago Grey. I think that these are the glaciers which can be accessed easily and without trekking.

From P Natales you can easily visit the Grey Glacier in one day. Maybe the best option is to hire a car and ride until the Hosteria Lago Grey. Then walk a little by the lake, and come back to P Natales in the evening.

Maybe this is useful to you:

Sincerely, I would change my plan and take a hike, or stay in some of the hotels within the Torres del Paine National Park, instead of staying in P Natales.
