Saw this from terminus of a catamaran ride from Puerto Natales. Half hour hike to glacier. Beautiful glacier with icebergs breaking off into the fjord. Not as big as others in the region, but nonetheless stunning. Boat ride recommended, with stops at waterfalls, sea lion and cormorant colonies, and warming whisky/ soft drink on return trip. The rest of the park was not seen on this boat trip, but can be done with a local guide.

We only experienced the short hike to Serrano glacier and got a taste of the unique virgin forest. We were told there are few trails and the park is largely unexplored and undeveloped. This is a gem in the raw and you can hire a private guide to take you to the least visited areas.

We took a 3-hour boat ride to get to the trail for Serrano Glacier. The boat ride passes a lot to see (nesting birds, sea lions, other glaciers, tons of mountains and waterfalls), and it is well worth most of a day round-trip to do so. There is a way to take smaller boats from this spot further into Torres NP. Along the way you will also pass the Balmaceda Glacier which is hanging over the fjord. This one is best seen close up by boat.

From the dock, it is a 25-minute walk to Serrano Glacier base with some tricky footing. Beautiful place.

I recommend this for everyone.

Very nice to see a glacier up close. The path is a little bit steep, but really not that bad overall.

The park is beautiful. We took a catamaran to hike by the glacier. I would highly recommend a visit here.

Also known as Pío XI Glacier, is in southern Chile and is the largest western outflow from the Southern Patagonian Ice Field. The only glacier in the world that grows rather than recedes--at a rate of 50m per day. This unique attraction offers spectacular calving and is as large as the nearby town Santiago, being 64km long, up to 6km wide and 80 metres high with a surface area of 786 square miles.

Now a days lots of cruise ship visit this place as this a one of the fascinating attraction in Chile. A place that you should visit as the color of the glacier is very stunning. Blueish and sometimes light pink or pinkish colour. Too cold so better bring a thick warmer.

We walked in the Bernardo O'Higgins National Park as part of a navigation on the Ultima Esperanza Fjord. The walk from the boat dock to the Serrano glacier takes about 30 min one way. You walk beside the glacier lake( with ice), through nice flowering bushes and after 15 minutes you can see the glacier approaching. You cannot touch the glacier itself. You will not be impressed if you already seen the Perito Moreno Glacier.
We would have wanted to be there with less people than the more than 100 that came with us on the catamaran.

I did the navigation from Puerto Natales to the Serrano and Balmaceda glaciers. The catamaran was heavily packed with tourists. The glaciers can not compete with Perito Moreno or Lago Grey. The food walk with 120 people does not make fun. The lunch is ok, a lot of meat.

Words can't describe and pictures do not make justice to the beauty of this place. Anywhere you look is stunning. Well worth the visit.

We were on a cruise ship, but could not get off, so did not have a very close up view. But what I saw, here, along with a few others in the region were spectacular. Was hoping for an ice break off, but no luck
