Upon arrival, you will transfer to Torres del Paine National Park. At Tierra Patagonia you will be contacted by the hosts so that you can choose from the menu of activities available for the following dates.
Our suggested activity for today is Mirador Cuernos.
After a scenic drive, passing by the Sarmiento and Nordenskjöld viewpoints, we arrive at the starting point. The terrain is fairly flat with only one steeper part, and we can always see the “cuernos” or horns of Paine in front of us. We visit the “Salto Grande” or “Big Waterfall” and continue along the shores of Lake Nordenskjöld. On arrival at the viewpoint, you can appreciate from close up the geology that formed the massif.
Our suggested activity for today is Hunters Trail.
This trek starts gradually, winding its way northwards, with the Paine Massif as a constant companion. Half way through we will visit a rocky area where there are cave paintings from the Aonikenk, hunter-gatherer native Indians that occupied this area some 6,000 years ago. It is also one of the best areas to see wildlife such as guanacos, foxes and condors.
Upon arrival, you will be taken to Explora Lodge. Explora Atacama is located in Ayllu de Larache (initially a community based on the kinship of the ancient Aymara people), near the village of San Pedro de Atacama.
During the morning you will enjoy the activity that you have chosen.The Lodge offers over 40 different guided hikes, bike rides, high mountain hikes and horseback rides, in groups of maximum 8 travelers. All our excursions have different difficulty levels, ranging from easy to expert, and different durations, from half day to full day.
In the evening you can enjoy stargazing sessions at the Explora observatory.
We recommend that you consult about the dinners in the lodge’s Quincho. In this barbeque area, two to three times a week, you can enjoy a traditional barbeque of lamb, beef and fish, as well as other local dishes – all accompanied by Andean music and song and dance performances by accomplished local artists.
Welcome back to Santiago!
