Torres del Paine National Park’s magnificent and unrivaled flora, fauna and stunning vistas are at your fingertips with this customized Patagonia trip, allowing you to handpick daily activities such as cycling, hikes and nature walks, returning home to EcoCamp at the end of each day for cozy dome accommodations and sublime meals.

Patagonia is a vast and diverse region, with scenery ranging from dramatic mountain formations and smoky volcanoes to flat barren pampa and expansive ice fields. At the far south of the Andes is the Torres del Paine National Park, one of the most impressive sights in the Southern Hemisphere and home to the Patagonia Wildlife Safari and EcoCamp. The dramatic mountain formations are crowded with glaciers, lakes, fjords, ancient forests and wildlife such as guanacos, flamingos, condors, nandus and huemules. There's also some of the most magnificent trekking and nature in the world. With three levels of activities to choose from - easy, active or mountain bike - the Patagonia Wildlife Safari adventure is outdoor recreation at its best!

We've listed the full details for the 7-day Patagonia Wildlife Safari, but this trip may be booked as a 4-, 5- or 6-day trip as well.

ITINERARY

Day 1: Punta Arenas To Torres Del Paine
Torres del Paine National Park, Patagonia, Chile
Learn More @ www.adventuresmithexplorations.com

The Patagonia Wildlife Safari starts in Punta Arenas early morning, either at your hotel or at the airport. You'll be picked up from Punta Arenas and driven to EcoCamp Patagonia, located in the world-famous Torres del Paine National Park, for briefing and your first night's stay. On the way, make stops at: Puerto Natales - a small but lively town on the shores of Seno Ultima Esperanza, “Last Hope Sound,” to enjoy a hearty lunch with delicious local food; and Cueva de Milodon - a massive prehistoric cave where the remains of a giant ground sloth were discovered in the 1890s. The journey is very scenic, with plenty of wild birds and wonderful landscapes. The day ends with your overnight stay at EcoCamp Patagonia, nestled in the heart of the park with a view of the Torres. During summer, the sun sets around 11pm, so upon arrival there's plenty of light to admire the Patagonian steppe with its guanacos and snow-peaked mountain horizon.
