Hiking Menu

Backyard * Tierra Patagonia Exclusive

HALF DAY EXCURSION

LEVEL: EASY

 

 

This walk is perfect for stretching your legs on arrival at Tierra Patagonia. Head towards the lake shore and the
boundary of the Torres del Paine National Park and pass through areas of low bush, all the time enjoying panoramic
views of Lake Sarmiento. Viewed from the lake shore, the hotel melts into the surrounding pampa whilst the dramatic
skyline of the Sierra Baguales behind can be seen, separating Chile from Argentina. The element that most
stands out during this walk are the thrombolytes on the shores of the lake. These formations, which are several
million years old, were created by some of the oldest living organisms on the earth. They form caves on the lakeshore,
some of which hide the most important predator in the park, the puma. This is the hotel’s “back yard” and it is
common to see wildlife such as eagles, condors, guanaco, sheep, foxes and ñandú (a type of ostrich) with amazing
views of the Torres del Paine mountain range.

Hunters Trail

 

HALF DAY EXCURSION

LEVEL: MEDIUM

 

 

 

After a 30 minute drive to the Porteria Lago Sarmiento this trek starts gradually, winding its way northwards, with

the Paine Massif as a constant companion. Half way through we will visit a rocky area where there are cave

paintings from the Aonikenk, hunter-gatherer native Indians that occupied this area some 6,000 years ago. It is also

one of the best areas to see wildlife such as guanacos, foxes and condors. The hike ends a few meters away from

Portería Laguna Amarga where the van is waiting to drive us back to the hotel.

Cornices

HALF DAY EXCURSION

LEVEL: MEDIUM

Sierra del Toro and also the hotel, from a 360° viewpoint. Strong winds are frequent in this area. The descent is
down a hill where there is no defined trail, so hikers must find their own way down. This hike is ideal for those who
want to see derent places outside the park boundaries and away from the crowds. At certain times of the year and
depending on weather conditions this may also be a good place to spot condors and eagles.
