Itinerary

DAY 1: ARRIVAL - THE PATAGONIAN ADVENTURE STARTS
Torres del Paine NP, Chile
Your day will begin at Punta Arenas Airport.* From the airport, you will be taken to EcoCamp Patagonia, where a hearty lunch will be provided in our Community Domes. The first activity of your Patagonian adventure will then begin at midday with a leisurely tour of the National Park, giving you plenty of opportunities to admire the Patagonian steppe with its guanacos and snow-peaked mountain horizon.
DAYS 2, 3, 4 & 5, WILDLIFE EXPLORATION AND OBSERVATION
Torres del Paine NP, Chile
We start off each day early, observing the sunrise from distinct locations while enjoying hot coffee and breakfast on the go. Our puma/cougar tracking team, already hard at work, will be in radio contact to let us know how they’re doing. Throughout the trip, they will be letting us know the location of the park's most elusive animals including the Andean puma (mountain lion) so that we can head to the sites where they are as soon as they're spotted. For photography buffs, the wildlife and landscapes we'll see over the next few days offer prime targets for taking pictures.
We will usually begin our wildlife exploration close to EcoCamp, in the park’s eastern sector, making the most of the beautiful morning light and animal activity. We enjoy around six hours of wildlife observation, studying and taking pictures of the park’s native flora & fauna, before heading back to EcoCamp for lunch and relaxation time.
In the afternoons, after the peak sun hours with little animal movement, we head out again, this time to the park’s western sector where we enjoy all the beautiful landscapes and flora & fauna. We visit landmark places such as Grey Glacier and other striking natural monuments. Our guide takes us through the different habitats and ecosystems in the area, introducing us to the unique and colorfulwildlife of Torres del Paine and teaching us the methodology for responsible wildlife observation. After enjoying the iconic Patagonian sunset over the Paine massif we return to EcoCamp for dinner and well-earned rest.
N.B. In the event of bad weather alternative activities will be planned.
DAY 6 DEPARTURE
Torres del Paine NP, Chile
Your last day will begin just as all your other activity-packed days will begin: with an early, hearty breakfast served amongst your fellow wildlife lovers in our Community Domes. From there, you will embark on a short day of activities before regrouping at EcoCamp for a well-deserved lunch. You will then be taken to Punta Arenas airport, where you will arrive late in the evening.
(Depending on travel conditions, we advise you to make sleeping arrangements for your final day in Punta Arenas)
