Glacier Grey is a glacier that starts in the Southern Patagonian Icefield and ends in Lago Grey. The lowest section of this glacier is in the Torres del Paine National Park, proffering views of Chilean mountain peaks and many different species of wildlife. The easiest way to reach Glaciar Grey is by tourist boat.

The ultimate Journey's End experience

A long drive from Punto Arenas in a 4WD, with occasional rough spots near the end climbing over low but rocky hills. The Hostelleria de Lago Grey at the end is gorgeous, the view beyond even more so; we arrived under dramatic skies in mid-summer with the sun breaking through clouds over the Torres and spotlighting the glacier at the other side of Lago Grey. It is so beautiful it brings tears to one's eyes. I privately rate hotels over the world on a scale 0-10 on their "Journey's End" quality and had found a few 9s in the past. Lago Grey got 11.
