Day 1  Punta Arenas to Explora Hotel

Hotel staff meet you on arrival at Punta Arenas airport, and transfer in lodge vans via Puerto Natales to the park (4.5 hours drive).   Orientation and dinner.

 

Days 2-4  Daily Excursions

Choose from over 50 different excursions, ranging from strenuous hikes to the famous Torres del Paine, to a scenic cruise on Grey Lake to the face of the Grey Glacier.

 

Day  5   Departure

You transfer out to continue your journey.

Weather conditions can vary dramatically within the same day.  Peak season is November through March, the Patagonian summer.  During the long hours of daylight we can undertake more ambitious longer excursions up the French River Valley and other rewarding destinations.

Extreme wind and rainy conditions may move in suddenly, hence you must always carry a weatherproof outer layer in your daypack.

A visit in the Patagonia winter presents a very different park.  With many fewer visitors, the wildlife comes down from the hills and is more visible.  The weather tends to offer more days of sunshine, without the strong winds of summer.

Spring starts in September, with many flowers in bloom and an abundance of migratory birds.
