Puerto Natales

Why visit Puerto Natales?

This is undeniably an adventure tourism tourist hot-spot, and much of the traditional charm has given way to catering to international visitors. However, the historic corrugated tin houses, great choice of cafes and restaurants, historic main square and the laid-back feel have a definite appeal. Condors fly above, the location and proximity to the Southern Ice Field is spectacular, the views and sunsets incredible, and the sense of both human and geological history is immensely atmospheric. There are plenty of activities such as kayaking, hiking and biking and, of course, it is the gateway to Torres del Paine.
Reasons to visit Puerto Natales include:

  • Experience the view of Puerto Natales, the Última Esperanza fjord and the Admiral Montt Gulf from Mirador Cerro Dorotea (you can hike or ride a horse up to the viewpoint), while watching for the condors that nest here. 
  • Visit the Cueva del Milodón (Milodón Cave), where you will learn about the giant ground sloths that lived here 11,000 years ago. You can even pose with a life-size replica of one of these extinct mammals. 
  • Explore the Bernardo O’Higgins National Park, with its wealth of wildlife, dense forests and network of fjords and glaciers.  
  • Take a catamaran tour of Seno Última Esperanza and see waterfalls, condors, sealions and Chilean skuas, or take a boat trip to the Balmaceda glacier.
