Overview

Itinerary

This is a Small Group Tour

  1. Oct 13

    Morning pick up at Punta Arenas Airport (ideally 9-11am arrival) when you will meet your expert guide and naturalist who will transfer you 2-3 hours to Puerto Natales. We will stop for lunch before continuing our journey to ‘Las Torres Hotel’; which we will reach around 4.00pm. We will enjoy our first Puma tracking safari late that afternoon

  2. Oct 14

    Our daily routine will consist of early starts (04:30am), where we will carry breakfast with us and connect with the other trackers who are part of our team. We will by radio so we can cover more area searching for the Pumas and other resident wildlife. These activities do not take place inside Torres del Paine national park, as currently there is a ban on tracking pumas until they properly regulate the industry, but instead on nearby private ranch land which has a high density of these beautiful cats. We end the morning safari activities around 11:00am for some down time, downloading photos, enjoy lunch and wait until around 4.00pm to head out again. This can be a golden period for Puma activity, so we will stay out as long as the light holds. One of the reasons to visit this area in November is to maximise daylight hours, so although the day is split into two; expect 10-12 hours out in the field which can be tiring for some.

  3. Oct 15

    As a reference point we can mention a list of ‘potential’ wildlife that can be seen around Torres del Paine. These could include Guanaco, Grey Fox, Red Fox, Haired Armadillo, Hognose Skunk, Puma, Condor, Fisher, Crested Caracara, Austral Parakeet, Black Chested buzzard eagle and many varities of Duck. We continue our long days in the field. reacting to information from our tracker, weather and where the latest Puma sightings have been.
