Patagonia Wildlife Safari

Southern Chile offers a combination of unique wildlife and spectacular scenery in one of the most isolated regions of South America. Visit one of South America's largest penguin colonies near the town of Punta Arenas before traveling to Torres del Paine National Park. After full days of exploring the park return and rest in comfort at the EcoCamp in luxurious Suite Domes!

Arrive Punta Arenas

Arrive in Punta Arenas and settle into your hotel.  The afternoon is free to explore this beautiful and historic coast town.

Day 2

Magdalena Island. Torres del Paine National Park

Take a morning zodiac trip from Punta Arenas out in the Strait of Magellan to Magdalena Island, where you will see over 100,000 Magellanic penguins! Spend your time along the shore of the island, or take a walk to the lighthouse located up the winding trail through the penguin colony.

Enjoy some free time back to Punta Arenas before setting off for your drive to Torres del Paine National Park. You'll arrive at the EcoCamp, a deluxe tent camp of large igloo-shaped tents built to minimize environmental impact while providing a comfortable setting with the luxury Suite Domes. The EcoCamp provides candlelight, feather comforters, composting toilets, and plenty of quiet to enjoy your spectacular surroundings.

Days 3-4

Torres del Paine Excursions

Click here to see more information about the excursions in Torres del Paine.

Your time at the EcoCamp is flexible and includes a menu of guided excursions.  Choose your day's activities based on your interests and energy level for the day, options ranging from easy-paced to strenuous hikes or even cycling tours.  Set off with your guide to travel across the park to Grey Glacier. Along the way, stop to visit the Salto Grande waterfall and take a quick hike (one hour roundtrip) to the Mirador Nordenskjold for stunning views of Los Cuernos and the French Valley. In the afternoon, board the ferry and set off across the Lago Grey. 

Hikers can  venture  to the foot of the gigantic spires of El Paine (8 hours roundtrip). Weather permitting, you'll witness the most famous sight of the Torres del Paine - the three granite monoliths reaching 9,400 feet- a testament to the massive glacial forces that carved them out of the earth. 

Some travelers prefer to relax and stay at the EcoCamp to enjoy the vistas and tranquility or take a walk apart from the guided group. Horseback riding and spa services can be arranged at the nearby Hosteria Las Torres during any free time or as an optional activity.
