Kayak Grey Lake
(Near to Glacier Grey)
Torres del Paine
Kayak is on Grey Lake in front of Glacier Grey and 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 kayak 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 later PM 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 kayak.
Departures from near to Refugio Grey at: 09:00hrs / 14:00hrs / 17:00hrs
The Kayak expedition lasts around 2.5 hours. Group size is from 2 to 14 people.
In the base camp you will supplied with a neoprene suit, waterproof jacket and boots, “poogies” (kayak gloves), kayak skirt and a life-jacket. In the safety briefing you will get to “know your kayak”, paddle, route and conditions.
On Lake Grey your kayak expedition will involve paddling around the large, floating icebergs, aiming towards the east side of the glacier and getting pretty close (but at a safe distance) to the giant, glacial ice wall. While you are resting and enjoying this incredible place your guide will offer you a snack and a hot drink. If weather conditions permit, we will walk over an island called a “nunatak” on our way back to base camp.
