From there, take a taxi to the Garden Domes Lodge (not included). Savor a welcome dinner and drinks, following the W Trek briefing. Stay at Garden Domes Lodge in the main cabin room accommodation in a shared double or twin room. You can leave your main luggage with the local partner during the hike so you only need to carry your hiking clothes and equipment, as well as the sleeping bag and mat provided. Day 2: Take a private transfer to Torres del Paine National Park, then trek to Base Torres (11.2 miles, 7-8 hours) with a tour guide and small group. After the hike, stay at Torre Central Lodge where you will sleep in a 6 to 8-bedroom dormitory accommodation. Note: the tour guide is only available during this day and you will be hiking on your own for the rest of the trip. Difficulty level for this day is high. Day 3: On the 3rd day, hike alongside Lake Nordenskjold to Los Cuernos (The Horns) and Frances Area (9.1 miles, 6.5 hours). Camp out at Camping Frances or Camping Los Cuernos. The tent will already be installed and ready before your arrival at the camping spot. Day 4: Trek through the French Valley to the British Lookout to Paine Grande (12.6 miles, 9 hours). Stay at Camping Paine Grande. As before, the tent will already be installed and ready before your arrival at the camping spot. Day 5: Complete a round trip trek from Paine Grande to the Grey Glacier Area (13.7 miles, 7 hours). Then, take the catamaran across Lake Pehoe to reach your bus transfer back to Puerto Natales. Rest your weary legs in a shared double or twin room at Garden Domes or at ChileTour Guest House. Day 6: Departure day. Take a taxi to the Puerto Natales Bus Station (not included), and take the regular bus transfer to Punta Arenas or Puerto Natales Airport, (included). Please note: you will receive your bus ticket via email from the local partner. You must print the ticket to board the regular bus at the exit of both airports. The bus is easy to find, as both airports are very small. You will ride to Puerto Natales Bus Station and take a taxi to the meeting point at Garden Domes Lodge at your own expense.

From Puerto Natales: Sierra Baguales Fossil Route Trek

2. From Puerto Natales: Sierra Baguales Fossil Route Trek

Trek through the wilderness of Patagonia on a full day guided excursion out into this magnificent landscape. After pickup from your hotel between 7:30 AM and 8:00 AM, you’ll head to the mysterious Sierra Baguales mountain range. On arrival at the horse ranch, you’ll enjoy a welcome coffee and cookies as you learn about the origins of the ranch.   Start off on a short trek of a half hour to visit Laguna Irene, where you can observe and photograph the birds and surroundings. As you do this, you’ll talk with your guide about the process of colonization of Patagonia, the history of the first human occupation of this place, and the habits and social importance of Patagonia for its first population.   Then, head to your next trekking starting point. On this second hike, you’ll cover 12.5 kilometers of medium inclination. Take in views of the Baguales mountain range, where pumas, guanacos, and wild horses live. After 3.5 hours of hiking, you’ll find marine fossils, dating back more than 50 million years. With a bit of luck, you may even run into a herd of horses.   Continue to a viewpoint located 1,200 meters above sea level and take in panoramic views of the entire sector, including excellent views of the various rock formations. Enjoy your packed lunch before taking the road back to the ranch, and from there, back to Puerto Natales.

What people are saying about Puerto Natales

The trip to Sierra Baguales was excellent, the whole crew was really super nice and took their time in explaining the history and geology of the place, especially regarding the fossils that are there in abundance, and some are old more than 60 million years, which is fascinating. Meanwhile, we saw a few significant birds, including the Condor, and the Black Swan, and also plants that are indigenous to the area, like the Yareta plant or the Calafate plant. We also saw some Guanacos, some were alive, and some were in skelleton form because the pumas ate them, so I got to see the place that is locally called the "Guanacos cemetary". I am so glad I did this tour, because the scenery is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful, and it's really worth every penny since we hiked almost half a day, and enjoyed the scenery and nature along the way. The time passed so quickly because the guides were really funny and positive and we had such a laugh. All in all,I recommend it to be an absolute must.

Everything they organized well except the last day of the trip they gave us breakfast at 8:00 am then we needed to hike 25 km ups and down rough trails ( it takes us 9 hrs) we needed to catch the boat at 5:00 pm . It was very very stressful for us to arrive back on time to catch the boat at 5:00 pm it would have been perfect if boat was 6:30 pm or we could stay one more night at glacier grey with extra cost. That’s why I am giving four star. Our guide on the first day Niko was awesome. Our host Maria did her best to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Thanks a lot.

Good hotels and campings, great food! Guide on the first day didn't tell anything he just walked up following the signs (would have been easy without a guide). A lot of wrong information in all the letters and in the information session.

superb! To do ! well organized everything went as planned. perfect for us!
