There is a strong focus on sustainability to which the Singular was awarded the Leadership Energy and Environmental Design certification.
You will be met on arrival at Punta Arenas Airport by a representative who will take you to your accommodation near the small town of Puerto Natales. During the drive in you will have plenty of time to admire the Patagonian steppe with its guanacos and snow-peaked mountain horizon. Pass by Carpa Manzano with a view of the river basin of Blanca Lagoon, and continue through the small country towns of El Ovejero and Villa Tehuelches. Also see the Penitente River Valley and Morro Chico, an imposing rocky outcrop.
Today you will explore Torres del Paine National Park. Starting at an old estancia in Villa Cerro Castillo continue to Lago Sarmiento where you will be able to see typical vegetation of this region as well as herds of guanacos. Once inside the Torres del Paine National Park you will be taken to different lookouts to see the majestic Macizo Paine. You will take a thirty minute walk to visit the Salto Grande waterfall where you will be able to see Cuernos del Paine (Paine Horns). The day concludes after a visit to Lago Grey where you will trek for an hour to view Glacier Grey and icebergs. The path home is via the Mylodon Cave route where you will witness panoramic views of Macizo Paine
The following day will start with a cycle along the border of the Canal Señoret until you reach Puerto Natales. The first stop is Costanera Pedro Montt, to take in the spectacular view and visit the fishermen on the pier. From here you will head to the inner part of the city and to the Plaza de Armas, the historical Municipal building, which was built during the Magellan cattle fever, mixing a British Post-Victorian style with the traditions of this area. You will also have the opportunity to meet local artisans, visit workshops and listen to their stories.
After breakfast check out of the hotel and transfer back to Punta Arenas Airport where your itinerary concludes. You may wish to add on a visit to the Atacama Desert or Chiloe Island onto this itinerary. Please contact our friendly travel agents to create a customised tour of Patagonia for you.
