FULL REFUND IF TRIP CANNOT BE OPERATED
Note: We offer this activity to be built into your main itinerary and not as a standalone.
WE OFFER: Ice hike in Torres del Paine on top of Glacier Grey, operated from the base near to Refugio Grey. For this activity reservations in advance are required. Information on times as well as duration is shown below. Usually people will build the ice hike into their W trek itinerary, or we can arrange to bring you over from Hotel Grey early am whereupon you can do the activity and the return the following day to Hotel Grey, from which we can arrange transfers from, and back to, Puerto Natales as well. However, the only issue with coming from Hotel Grey is that should the wind speed pick up the boat crossing can be cancelled or delayed and in such circumstances this would affect the ability for you to do the ice hike..
Departures from near to Refugio Grey at 08:00hrs & 14:30hrs.
Only one company holds the concession to operate ice hiking on glacier grey, which means that groups are between 2 people to 10 people max.
Physical demand: Moderate, but participants must be in good physical shape. People with bad knees or other physical difficulties should NOT select this activity.
The ice hike lasts about 5 hours (including the boat transfer and walking onto an island called an “islatak” from where the glacier is accessed from).
The walk on the “islatak” is quite challenging and lasts for about one hour, after which the guide will help you to adjust your equipment correctly for the hike on the actual glacier.
Guide, rubber boat transfer, ice axe, crampons,
helmet and harness.
