Deemed a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1978, this park embraces an area of extreme beauty that renders most visitors speechless. Thick magellanic forests, barren pampa, and turquoise lakes with huge glaciers and beautifully sculpted icebergs surround you. Soaring out of the earth are the majestic, granite Torres del Paine. Unforgettable hikes can be made around the park, each offering fabulous views of this remote land that is home to guanacos, foxes, woodpeckers, austral parakeets and condors, amongst many other species of wildlife.
Try to pick up at least a few basic greetings, directional questions, and common curiosities in the native language(s) before you leave for your trip.
