  • We went there for three days and enjoyed the tranquility and the outstanding views and climate. A perfect area to relax.  more »
  • No words to describe the walk in the Park Montes del Paine. We stayed in Puerto Natales, we rented a car for two days and made the trip to the Park and Lake Grey, both not to be missed.

  • The Torres del Paine National Park is located 100 km from Puerto Natales. Vaarias tourism enterprises take you, or you can go in own car, it's what we did. The route has a part of asphalt and other rubble, and is very well maintained. The entrance to the Park has a value of $6,000 Chilean per person and is valid for 3 days. We take a cottage in Puerto Natales, and went 3 days. There are options of camping, hotels, rooms, restaurants, bathrooms. That if the values are quite high. Offer the best views the overlooks or trails, many with long stretches. What are advised to wear clothes comfortable and warm jackets, resistant to water, shoes trekking, water and something to eat. Imposing and majestic! It's worth the long journey.

  • I had an awesome 6D5N hiking trip at Paine national park. Weather is nice environment is clean and well protected.
  • Beautiful park where you can hike from one day to 8 days if you do the full O circuit. The W takes between 3-5 days. You can camp or sleep in the refugios. Most of them offer full board but they get full fast so book ahead. It's real trekking so be prepared. Weather changes very fast and can get very cold and windy. Entrance of the park is currently 21k pesos and it is advised to have cash as the machine often doesn't work. If you are taking the last morning bus for the park, expect a long line at the park entrance.
  • An obvious must-see in Patagonia! Lots of diversity, incredible weather changes. Prepare your route to limit camping costs! About 10 bucks per person per night, along with the entrance fee. Worth it though!
  • Admire the amazing Andes and visit one of South America’s most beautiful National Parks. Get your llama legs on and go hiking over mountains loaded with the white stuff and across glorious glaciers
  • The hike is good, but a lot of room for improvement. We hiked the O-loop. During the hike you won't find any information about the vegetation, animals, the view or landscape (what is the summit in front of me?, how has this glacier changed, what is human impact on Torres?...) the track isn't well maintained so where is my $21000 entrance fee going? Few of the campsites were run by generators from 8 to 10pm--I don't think it's what people are coming for in a National park. We found the Conaf staff to be not eager to share information; we saw them standing in front of a broken bridge and laugh about people struggling to cross instead of repairing it. Camping are expensive and mostly badly run. My recommendation save your money for other place to hike--Patagonia has ya lot of them!

Where to stay in Puerto Natales (Torres del Paine)

Despite Puerto Natales' tourist-centric approach, accommodations remain as low-key as the town itself, and many backpackers and trekkers opt to stay in the numerous small lodges and hostels here. These shared spaces feature extremely basic facilities, though combined with cozy common areas and the friendliness of family-run establishments. Many of these hostels are also more than willing to arrange travel if you want to set out into the mountains. As in many of the nation's outdoor-adventure hubs, Puerto Natales' lodging options tend to offer lower rates during the low season.
