Puerto Natales

(4.3/5 based on 9,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: nature, sightseeing, museums
Surrounded by towering mountains, shimmering lakes, and the region's rugged hills, Puerto Natales serves as a bustling jumping-off point for exploring the Torres del Paine National Park. One of the highlights of a Puerto Natales itinerary is sure to be setting off along the winding waterways of Chile's southern fjords. Founded first as a sheep town and then an extensive mining center, the port has long since swapped many of its local shops for upscale boutique restaurants, hiking-gear stores, and backpackers' lodges. However, much of its traditional Patagonian charm remains, from the unassuming residential buildings to the peaceful, mountain-backed lakefront.

Where to stay in Puerto Natales

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.
