The small tour starts at the foot of the rock on a farm's land. After crossing some fields the path starts its way up to the Cerro. Up there you have an amazing view all over Puerto Natales, the sea and the mountains!!

The hike is truly beautiful. However, in order to begin the trek up you need to pay a fee at a residential home which serves as its entrance. It is there that we discovered several chained dogs that appeared to be very malnourished. Please help drive awareness of this issue through the owners and local community. I have a compelling...

Beautiful view from the top. I had some trouble with finding the path in the beginning but this whole hike is such a unique experience. You get to see all of Natales from above, the channel of last hope and even the snow covered mountains. I went alone and afterwards when I came back down to the house she offered... More

Try riding a horse, or doing a trekking... looking up the sky and the funny clouds upon your head with the cold patagonian wind. Certainly, something to do it again!.

This is a gem! To get there, we took a 10 minute taxi ride from our hostel to the start of the hike (it cost about $3,500 as of Aug., 2015). The hike begins on a farm apparently owned by two friends that live at and work the farm together. The hike is two hours of pretty steep uphill that... More

We cycled out from Puerto Natales to reach this mirador. The entry fee (which is a bit steep) is charged by the farm owners and gives you access to the path up the mountain and tea and biscuits after. The trek up the mountain is enjoyable passing through various types of vegetation. The wind up the top was fierce and... More

This was the perfect activity for my gropu since we only had 1 full day in Puerto Natales but wanted to spend some of it outdoors. It was a very cheap (less than $20 roundtrip) taxi to get out there but then unfortunately we had to pay an admission fee (either 5 or 10,000 chillean pesos, I can't remember which)... More

The hike go up strongly in the 1st half of hour and then more lightly. Don't forget to taste all the berries here(calafate, churos, mirtilles) and to search for morrels and orchidea... View from the mirador worth the effort and at return, a cup of tea/coffee and a cake are the rule...

Fun hike, only takes an hour or so to hike to the top. (You have to pay a fee before heading up which seemed bit superfluous/annoying...as this isn't exaclty Torres del Paine). Walk through a field up big hill, through pretty forest...they you arrive at kind of ugly, treeless summit where the wind is extreme. in fact, when you are... More

My husband and I just got back from this trip and I am indeed quite angry. The lady who received us at the property charged a ridiculous expensive entry - more than the fee at Torres del Paine park, the same as a one way trip (3h bus) Punta Arenas-Puerto Natales. Then she said she would give us tea, coffee,... More
