The Puma is the largest feline in the Andes Mountains and Patagonia. Being at the top of the food chain, it is difficult to see with the naked eye, which is why you have to go into their own habitat to be able to photograph them. The activity of the puma is concentrated mainly in twilight hours, dawn and dusk, times when its sighting is more possible. In the National Park, this animal is distributed in specific areas of wide knowledge of our guides, also allowing the sighting of native fauna such as Guanacos, Foxes, Huemules (native deer), condors, eagles, among others.
At 05:30 am we pick you up from your accommodation in Puerto Natales to start our excursion to the north of the Province of Ultima Esperanza. We will pass through Cerro Castillo, a rural settlement located in the middle of the Patagonian pampas and border with the country of Argentina. From here we continue crossing the Magellan steppe, until we find great mountains to the west. We will visit the sectors of Lago Sarmiento and Laguna Amarga, with the Paine Mountain Range as a backdrop at all times. We will walk through the trails used by the pumas, we will see native fauna and we will observe cave punctures dated 11,000 years old! We will be for a full day on the trail of the Puma! The return in Puerto Natales will be in the afternoon.
