Hi everyone!
The weather was beautiful today, clear and windless. We hiked from Refugio Paine Grande to Glacier Grey enjoying marvelous views of the Paine Horns, Lake Grey and Glacier Grey. The colors and contrasts of the different landscapes that we could see were unique. The hike was 4 hours long and then we boarded a catamaran which sailed to the impressive facade of the glacier. After that, we navigated to the southern end of Lake Gray from where our private van took us back to EcoCamp. We had a really tasty dinner in the evening accompanied with some good chilean wine. The team is having lots of fun. It was a great and very rewarding day. We are looking forward to hiking to the iconic base view of the Paine Towers tomorrow.
Thanks for following!
All the best
