|Us, Cassilero del Diablo and the beach camp at Grey Glacier|
A guide we met in Torres del Paine told us about this gem of a valley. The only way in is a 5-hour hike, after a 2-hour bus ride from Puerto Montt and a 6 km cab ride to the trailhead. I think you can see why this has such appeal to us :)
We could have flown up, but where´s the adventure in that? I look forward to heading up through the fjords of Patagonia, amongst glaciers and ice flows. With a bit of luck we might see some cool aquatic life, like dolphins or whales. Also, we hear they sell some pretty good pills against seasickness on board, as there are some choppy spots along the way. We´ll be sure to let you know how that all goes at the end of the week.
We are also working on finding a spot to stay in Valparaiso or Viña del Mar for a few days over New Year´s for some beach time and more exploring of the Chilean coast.
Should be good!
