Itinerary

 

Depart from your hotel in Puerto Natales heading north along a route bordering Ultima Esperanza Bay for a few kilometers. After crossing through plains and forests we will reach the so-called "Silla del Diablo" (Devil´s Seat) a strange natural rock formation 30 meters high , and then the entrance to the Natural Monument "Mylodon Cave". Here we will visit the museum and take a short 250 meter hike to the huge 200 meters deep cavern where remains of prehistoric animals have been found.

                Later on we will take the main road for a short stop in some of the coffe shop located in Cerro Castillo Village (Border with Argentina) and then we will continue our journey up to the lookout over "Sarmiento Lake" with an imposing view of the Paine Massif. Here it will be posible to see wildlife such as guanacos, condors and rheas. After, we will stop at Laguna Amarga (Bitter Lagoon) where you will find one of the best views of the majestic "Torres del Paine".

                Afterward our vehicle will stop at the viewpoint overlooking "Los Lagos" (The Lakes), where we can admire their different colors. Later on, after an easy 400 meter walk, we will arrive to "Salto Grande" a mighty waterfall. Later on skirting the "Pehoé Lake" we will go to "Lake Grey" where at times it’s possible to observe some of the few "huemules" that inhabit the area. After crossing a hanging bridge we will begin a 10 minute walk through native forest to reach the long beach of this magnificant lake to admire the huge icebergs that have broken off from the glacier.

                Later, depending of requests, we will return to Puerto Natales by the same route or by the new road.
