Visit Puerto Natales: Your Travel Guide

Things to Do in Puerto Natales
Glacier Grey
Glacier Grey’s name may evoke images of a fog-like stretch of terrain, but its 19 km of patches of blue-hued ice should really be the headliner. The bright tinge to this ice-clad landscape dazzle, while icebergs float in jagged, over-sized form across Lake Grey. Intrepid boat passengers can disembark onto the icebergs for a short stroll across the mammoth chunks of ice.
Last Hope Sound
Ice-blue, sprawling and serene, Last Hope Sound has a rather more ominous name than its looks suggest. Named by an explorer searching wildly for refuge in what is now Puerto Natales, the land surrounding the fjord is known for its storms and stunning landscapes. You can take a boat trip from within Del Paine National Park, or paddle at your own pace on a rented kayak.
Milodon Cave
Plonked in the middle of nowhere, this isolated spot is known for its natural beauty that once offered cave shelter to giant, bear-sized sloths, which are now extinct. Remains of the creatures were found in the 19th century. Nowadays, you can take a 15-minute walk up to the site then follow surrounding trails, dodging stalagmites and stalactites as you go.

Torres del Paine and the glaciers are just amazing. I have very nice pictures of the trip. The restaurant close to the downtown area, the Lenga (some type of a tree in the area), is worth every penny.

Recommended in Puerto Natales

The best 5 day trail I've ever done is the W-Trek in Torres del Paine. I started from the West and worked myself to the very East. In that case, you get to the summit of the Torres for sunset on the last day. A well deserved climax to your 5 days of physical effort.

During off-season, the buses to Torres del Paine leave in the morning only. Leave enough time for getting supplies/equipment. While many places are open until 9pm, the exchange offices usually close early.

Take it slow. There are not many routes in the park, so taking a 30-min break every now and then will reveal more of the park to you than rushing to the next camp. asked travelers...
