Declared Biosphere Reserve by the UNESCO in 1978, the Torres del Paine National Park, (located in the Chilean Patagonia) in internationally renowned as one of the most beautiful, unspoiled and remote places of the planet. In southern border of the park the trip starts paddling the Serrano River, a swift but calm flow in normal conditions. A two day paddle will take us to the sea, visiting Serrano Glacier and paddling among the icebergs and the Patagonian landscape.
