Puerto Natales is the capital city of the province of Última Esperanza and lies along the Señoret channel facing the Patagonian Andes Range.
It was founded in 1911 and it has evolved into an important urban center of Patagonia. The landscape is wonderful, with a changing geography that has valleys, fiords, archipelagos and the mysterious white ice fields. The highly variable climate in the region allows for diverse tourism activities enriched by incredible architecture and breathtaking natural sights.
From the mild slope on which it is settled, visitors get to see the Riesco Mountains, the Paine Massif and glaciers of the Southern Ice Field.
This is the gateway to beautiful natural landscapes, such as the worldwide known Torres del Paine National Park, Cueva del Milodón Natural Monument and the Continental Ice Field, among others.
