Day by Day Overview

After meeting your guide at your hotel or at the airport, you will be transferred in a private vehicle to Torres del Paine National Park. During our journey to the park, we will look for guanaco, southern grey fox, and Patagonian skunk while enjoying our first views of Southern beech (Nothofagus) forest. While visiting the valleys we will be given a geological interpretation of the origins of the dramatic backdrop of Torres del Paine, one of the finest natural spectacles in Patagonia.

Meals: Box-lunch, Dinner
Accommodation: Hosteria Pehoe

We have organised a busy schedule of day and night search outings for pumas in the area. We will inspect the immediate surroundings of our hotel at night as well as the puma hunting grounds located in the eastern flank of the park. The area comprised by the northern coast of Sarmiento Lake, Laguna Amarga and Laguna Azul is well known for holding one of the largest concentrations of pumas in the wild.

February through April is particularly a good period to attempt to find them as the females are actively hunting to provide food to their growing cubs; at this time they are not active just by night but also during the twilight hours. To see a female puma and its large-sized cubs against this remarkable mountain backdrop and big sky is a magnificent wildlife spectacle. In company of our guide and puma tracker we will follow puma family groups at a prudent distance with the help of binoculars and spotting scopes.

Meals: Breakfast, Box-lunch, Dinner
Accommodation: Hosteria Pehoe

An additional day to explore the park searching for puma plus other interesting mammals such as the Andean deer (or huemul), Patagonian hog-nosed skunk and Patagonian hairy armadillo.

Meals: Breakfast, Box-lunch, Dinner
Accommodation: Hosteria Pehoe

During the morning we will continue our exploration in different areas of the park. A sensational vista from Laguna Azul on the eastern side of the park will be a superb grand finale to this exciting journey of discovery among the natural wonders of the ‘end of the world’. Later, we will be transferred to Punta Arenas or Puerto Natales where our trip ends. We can arrange your transfer to El Calafate, southern Argentina, if needed.

Meals: Breakfast
