Located at the end of the world in the stunning Chilean Patagonia, Torres del Paine National Park, named a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO and the 8th Natural Wonder, is a world of unique contrasts. Its magnificent mountains hide turquoise lakes, evergreen forests, and vast ice fields.
Patagonia's glaciers slowly molded this jagged landscape over millions of years, inching down from the Southern Patagonian Ice Field that borders the park to the northwest. It is the larger part of the Patagonian Ice Sheet which originally covered all of southern Chile. This glacial erosion process is evident everywhere you look- in its deep valleys, in the turquoise glacial lakes, in the glaciers hanging over sharp peaks and powerfully sitting in front of snow-capped mountains, and in the diverse ecosystem that thrives within the Park.
Approximately 225,000 hectares / 550,000 acres of pristine, untamed natural beauty sits in one of the most remote places in the world. The granite towers for which the Park is named stand out on a horizon scattered with mountaintops. Grazing in the flat plains below, some of the world’s largest populations of guanacos and pumas run freely. Soaring high in the skies are condors and over 400 other species of birds. If you’re lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of the huemul, the endangered Andean Deer native to Patagonia.
