Explore the charms Puerto Natales

  • Bernardo O'Higgins National Park

    A place where wildlife abounds in native forests growing in the middle of a network of fjords, this is Bernardo O’Higgins National Park, home to the Kawésqar ethnic group.
    In this park, the glaciers of the Southern Ice Fields are the protagonists of the landscape and invite you to tour them in boats and admire their grandeur.
    Ride through the park on horseback, relax by a campfire and enjoy the sound of nature or camp by the river under the stars that can be seen in the vastness of the sky.

  • Dorotea Hill

    Standing at 800 meters, Dorotea Hill (Cerro Dorotea) invites you for an easy group-based trek. Enjoy the trip and once at the top, prepare your camera. The mesmerizing view of the city of Puerto Natales, the Ultima Esperanza fjord and the Admiral Montt Gulf are worth photographing.

    On the way back down, enjoy the lenga pathways and the beautiful sound of the birds living on the hill. To satisfy your hunger you can stop half-way for a typical supper with hot tea or coffee and sopaipillas with jam and butter.

  • Cueva del Milodón Natural Monument

    The Mylodon Cave is a destination of great paleontological interest, formed by three caverns that preserve their remains almost intact. In the site you will find a life-size replica of the famous mammal that gives it its name. Take a picture of yourself wrestling with the animal or a more tender one giving it a hug. At the end, take the opportunity to have a picnic in the surroundings, there are special areas for that purpose in the middle of nature.

  • Southern Patagonian Ice Fields

    49 glaciers branch off from the Southern Ice Fields, among them Pio XI and O’Higgins in the Bernardo O’Higgins National Park, and the Tyndall, Grey and Montt glaciers in the Torres del Paine National Park. Walking along white roads will put your skills to the test.
    But not all is ice. The surrounding lenga forests and cold steppes will bring a smile to your face.
    If you are a professional sportsman, venture to Mount Fritz Roy or simply be dazzled with the multiple colors that its mounds acquire according to the position of the sun.
