Rio Serrano Hotel 2-Night Itinerary

On this 3-day/2-night stay at the Rio Serrano Hotel, which sits just outside of Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park, an endless array of Patagonian scenery that will leave you speechless with wonder and awe. This 5-star family-owned luxury hotel – which is the largest hotel in the Torres del Paine National Park area – commands superb views of the Paine Massif’s monumental Cuernos (“Horns”), granite spikes that thrust skyward. From the hotel, this 3-day introductory program will take you on a hiking excursion to the base of this park, as well as on short walks, 4x4 adventures and a spectacular horseback ride. Within the hotel itself, you will find that all of the rooms have stunning views of the massif, and each of these guest quarters is instilled with an elegant yet homey cabin-like quality.  Similar attention has been paid to the main areas, including the cozy lounge and the relaxed bar area and pool, which also have stunning Patagonia views.


“My wife and I just completed a 5-day tour around the Cotopaxi volcano and the stunning Quilotoa loop – overall an excellent trip and wonderful experience.”Bernd Bassalleck

Detailed Itinerary

Day 1
Arrival in the Chilean Patagonia – Rio Serrano Hotel – Aonikenk Route Trekking

AM: Arriving at Chile’s Puerto Natales airport, a Rio Serrano Hotel representative can meet you and drive you along the scenic 83 km road to Hotel Río Serrano, situated just 4 km from the southern entrance to Torres del Paine National Park. After checking in, you can enjoy lunch at the hotel and have a chance to rest up.

PM: Following lunch at the hotel, you will have an incredible opportunity to appreciate local fauna close up and personal by approaching families of guanacos. From there, we will trek along the Aonikenk Route to the Monte Almirante Nieto area of the Paine massif, on park’s eastern trail. You will probably find this most interesting part of the trek as you will be able to observe ancient paintings made by the indigenous peoples who once inhabited this area, thereby giving an anthropological character to this activity.

Day 2
Vehicle Tour of the Park – Condor Lookout Point Trek

AM: Today you will have an excellent alternative for experiencing the park. On this 4X4 vehicle tour, you will realize the true majesty of the Paine Massif as we visit the beautiful lakes, rivers and waterfalls of the park. Along with the flora and fauna of Patagonia, these features are the postcard-perfect images that you will view throughout our morning excursion that ends at Laguna Azul (“Blue Lake”), where we will have lunch with a spectacular view (weather permitting) of the famous Torres del Paine.

PM: This afternoon you will have a chance to experience one of the most spectacular views of the park. Driving in a 4X4 vehicle, we will ride to Condor Lookout Point to take in the views of everything around the massif Paine – including lakes, rivers, flora and fauna and the intense color of Lake Pehoe. If you’re lucky, you might even sight a majestic condor flying overhead or perched on a wall near the trail.

Day 3
Nutria River Horseback Excursion – Departure

AM: This final day at Rio Serrano Hotel will provide you with an unforgettable alternative excursion. As Patagonia is the land of the gaucho, this Nutria River Horseback Excursion is the best way to connect with this celebrated culture. And for this, the Serrano River provides the ideal setting. After mounting up on your selected steed, we will ride to the Serrano River’s confluence with the Grey River, even crossing the river on horseback and heading into the Nothofagus forest. We will later ride back to the hotel for lunch.

PM: Following a rich Patagonia lunch, your amazing Chilean experience based at Rio Serrano Hotel will come to its conclusion. After you pack and check out, you will be driven back to Chile’s Puerto Natales airport for your departure home or onward.
