For an unforgettable view of the Grey Glacier, set off for an extra 3 – 4 extra hours (round trip) past the refuge in the direction of the famous hanging bridges. It is by far the best lookout of the glacier.

Day 2: Hike to Paine Grande Refuge

Enjoy breakfast in the dining room of Grey refuge and do not forget to request your box lunch! In case you did not have the chance to visit the hanging bridges the day before, you can leave very early in the morning and walk to the first or second bridge, to quickly return and begin the walk to the Paine Grande refuge. A few minutes after starting to walk you will begin to marvel at the spectacular landscapes of Campos de Hielo Sur and the icebergs of Lake Grey. The walk will be ascending through a mountainous forest until reaching the sometimes very windy Gray Glacier viewpoint. The walk continues until you reach Laguna Los Patos, where you begin the descent through a narrow and windy valley that takes you directly to the Paine Grande refuge. Enjoy dinner at the refuge.

Here, you will be rewarded with incredible views of Los Cuernos (the Horns), turquoise glacial lagoons and amazing hanging glaciers that fall down the east side of Paine Grande Mountain (3.050 m.a.s.l.m). If you are lucky, you will hear the loud sound of the glacier and the falling water, as well as it is very common to witness avalanches.
