While undeniably secluded, you can reach the bustle of Puerto Natales in ten minutes. Look out for any film festivals or other cultural events happening at the Galpón Cultural Center in town during your stay.

About Estancia Bahía Esperanza

Estancia Bahía Esperanza is a private reserve of 2,200 hectares located on the Antonio Varas Peninsula, in Chile's southern Patagonia. Due to its characteristics, the Antonio Varas Peninsula is only accessible by crossing the Última Esperanza fjord, which is a ten minute boat trip from the port city of Puerto Natales. Based across the Señoret Channel, you're presented with an amazing view of the Paine Grande, Balmaceda Massif and Puerto Natales.

There's a host to enjoy in the city, from the unique, local flavours of Aluén's ice cream, to the sensational sunsets at La Costanera and the local indigenous history at Museo Historic. Of course, you're also ideally based for exploring Torres del Paine National Park and completing some of the famous or lesser-known trails. A daily morning and afternoon bus runs to the park from Puerto Natales. Adding a stay here onto a trip to Torres del Paine could be a great way to experience the character of both areas.
