If you wish to know and explore the authentic and real Patagonia, Sierra Baguales is undoubtedly your destination! A unique, magical and remote place. The contrasts between the yellow pampa with the rugged mountains and the majestic sky seem to be taken from a work of art. The solitude, the silence and the vastness are present in each step that one takes in this particular landscape. We will leave Puerto Natales for Cerro Guido, where we will make our first stop to be able to know a bit more about the stockbreeding history of the region. We will visit the old country estate and the shearing hut. After that we will go deep into the mysterious Sierra to arrive at the end of the road where we will start our adventure, the farm ‘Las Cumbres’, which is developed as the first paleontological park in the region. On the way through the path we can discover the inexorable passing of time with the fossils that are found down to the ground, which will allow us to transport ourselves to the ancient oceans and old forms of life. We will have lunch in one of the best views of Sierra. The way on the path takes about 4 hours to cover completely. Once we are back, we will recover some energy to return to the city.
*** The best choice to enjoy this place is spending the night in a properly-equipped shelter. In case you have time and want to live the real experience in Patagonia, choose the option with accommodation. Waking up in Sierra Baguales is a spectacle you cannot miss***
