Town of backpackers
Antarctica Voyage on Ocean Nova and Patagonia journey

Exploring the Antarctic peninsulaExploring the Antarctic peninsula (Sergey Semenchinskiy)
We left Punta Arenas by bus in the afternoon. Our next stop was Puerto Natales and then onto Torres del Paine Park and the cave of Cueva del Milodon. Puerto Natales is about 250 km north, on the shore of a Pacific Ocean bay. After three hours of driving we arrived there and found our hotel. It was not very easy because of wrong GPS information on the hotel's website. But finally we managed to find it. After that we set up a day bus excursion in Torres del Paine with an English speaking guide and went to buy tickets for the bus tomorrow. According our plan, Puerto Natales would be our last stop in Chile. After it we planned to return in Argentina.

We took a walk through town after it. The town is really small and it's main industry is tourism. It is a gateway to national park Torres del Paine. Every minute we met here groups of backpackers. Every other house we saw was a hostel or restaurant. The weather was cool and windy, and we were hungry. For this reason our walk was finished by a lazy supper in a warm restaurant. The waiter there spoke English very well.
