Patagonia and Puma Trekking
At the very bottom of South America is the beautiful Torres Del Pane National Park, one of Chile’s most iconic adventure hotspots. The park is a pristine wilderness renowned for its rugged rock pinnacles, calving glaciers and alpine forests perfect for hiking, 4WD safaris and a plethora of other adventure based activities. Within this picturesque setting are 26 different species of mammal including the Red Fox, Grey Fox, Patagonian Skunk, Guanaco (a relative of the Andean llama) and the world’s largest mountain lion – the puma.
Like their African relatives, the best time to see these cats, nicknamed “The Ghost of the Andes” is when they are most active during early mornings and late afternoons. Daily puma tracking excursions follow this schedule, in the wilderness everything runs on nature’s clock. Traverse this beautiful landscape either by 4WD or on foot with a professional tracking team. In search of this elusive cat. During the middle of the day you can return to your chosen accommodation to relax, enjoy a home-cooked meal or perhaps a spa treatment – there are a number of luxury accommodation options in the park.
