Departure from your accommodation from Puerto Natales to Torres del Paine National Park.
Our first hike “Portería – Portería” begins in the National Park access “Portería Sarmiento” and finishes in a different one called “Portería Laguna Amarga”. Marvel at the Paine Massif and the radiant, blue glacial lakes in a 2 hours hike along the Patagonian steppe. This path is also characterized and attractive for the observation of local wildlife. After an approximately 1 hour hike, we will reach a series of cave paintings which date from 10.000 years ago. These paintings were made by the first inhabitants of Patagonia.
Afterwards, our transfer will take us to the Nordenskjöld viewpoint to enjoy the view of the lake of the same name and the east face of the Paine Massif where our local guide will explain the geological characteristics of the Paine mountain range. We will continue our excursion and stop at “Pudeto” area to enjoy the rushing frothing waterfall “Salto Grande”. Immediately after, we will start a 2 hour hike (roundtrip) to “Mirador Cuernos”, a place of overwhelming beauty and probably one of the most famous spots in Torres del Paine National Park.
We will have lunch at the Pehoé camp, and after resting with a view of the Cuernos del Paine, we will head to the Condor Viewpoint.
After spending some time in the Condor viewpoint we will return the same way to get on our transfer and start the drive back to Puerto Natales.
