DAY 8
Puerto Natales | Torres del Paine National Park

Today, explore the magnificent wilderness of Torres del Paine National Park. This park was created by tectonic movements — the rugged landscapes were sculpted during the ice ages and the motion of glaciers have continued to reshape it. Large glaciers continue to descend from the Southern Patagonian Ice Field, one of the world’s largest freshwater reserves. A UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the park is renowned for its otherworldly landscape of granite spires, ice and deserted pampas. See firsthand the serrated ridges and spires of the Torres del Paine mountains. Watch closely as you scan the peaks and you might pick out a soaring Andean condor riding an updraft. Tonight, after dinner, simply unwind in your room or, if the sky is clear, marvel at the Patagonian night sky, awash with countless pinpoints of starlight.
