Operator's Itinerary

Day 1: Transfer from Puerto Natales to Serrano Camp

This afternoon a private transfer will take you from Puerto Natales, along a scenic route through the enormous landscapes of the Patagonia pampas. The mountains and valleys of the Paine Massif come into sight as you travel along unpaved roads and past lagoons to the Rio Serrano sector of Torres Del Paine.

Your destination: the fully-equipped Serrano Camp, located on the shores of the Serrano River, away from the buzz of crowded refugios and campsites. Upon arrival, you will be warmly greeted by staff who will escort you to your private deluxe accommodation. The site has double deluxe tents on raised platforms, protected against the bracing Patagonian elements. Inside, you’ll find double-height mattresses, cosy down covers and heaters that can be operated during the evening to ensure a warm night’s sleep. Separate male and female bathrooms with hot showers are just a short walk from the tents.

A freshly prepared welcome dinner awaits you in a dedicated dining lodge, with magnificent views of the Paine Massif under the changing colours of the endless Patagonian sky. The shared lodge has room to lounge, relax, and enjoy great company before turning in for the evening. 

Length of transfer: 1.5hrs, 90km

Meals: Dinner

Accommodation: Serrano Camp 


Day 2: Puma tracking; Transfer to Puerto Natales

After a hearty early breakfast, your guide will pick you up from the camp to start your adventure in search of puma. We will hike and track puma in various areas of the park and once located, there will be just a short opportunity to take photos of the puma (around 15-30mins), so as not to disturb them. 

A picnic lunch is served in the Lake Grey area where we will also try our luck in finding the elusive huemul and photograph the spectacular Patagonian landscapes. Our trek will continue through other areas of the park, such as Laguna Azul and Laguna Amarga, to soak up the variety of landscapes and observe other species of flora and fauna.

Towards the end of the day, we will try to find the pumas once again for a final photograph opportunity. We then return to Puerto Natales.

Vehicle support: Full-day vehicle support for tracking and short transfers through park

Length of hike: 8-10hrs guided tracking

Meals: Breakfast, picnic lunch

What our customers think

The highlight of our trip was seeing a puma mother and her cub playing for an extended period of time.

Paul Miller United States Of America February 2019

The puma tracking was more than we expected. One day was rainy and cold and we didn't see much. Also, the last day we canceled because of the expected bad weather but we should have gone anyway. It didn't matter as we were so happy with the one good day that we had. The guides were great.
