Chile travel

Puerto Natales

A rancher feel and an ever growing adventure activity scene are mixed in this city, which is the gateway to the famous Torres del Paine National Park.

Climb the Dorotea Hill to look at Puerto Natales from above. If you’re lucky, you’ll be able to see the majestic flight of the condor that nests on the vertical walls of the hill.

Discover the Milodon Cave and get to know the history of this giant sloth that used to live here in this southernmost part of Chile more than 10,000 years ago. Sail through the Ultima Esperanza fjord and be amazed by the glaciers you’ll find on your trip.

You’ll be pleasantly surprised with the countless activities to do outdoors and you’ll be amazed by the vibrant colors that paint the sky at sunset, which you’ll see from your kayak or bike.

But not everything is physical effort, so enjoy the abundant Patagonian food and take the opportunity to recharge your batteries at the top level accommodation you’ll find here.

For more information about Puerto Natales and its surrounding area, visit patagonia-chile.com. Since this is the last city before entering the Torres del Paine National Park, it's a good idea to get provisions here. The shops in Puerto Natales do not handout plastic bags, so you must have room in your backpack or carry eco-friendly bags.
