Operator's Itinerary

Day 1: Transfer to Serrano Riverside Camp

The afternoon prior to your puma tracking excursion, a private transfer will take you 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, past lagoons to the Rio Serrano sector of Torres Del Paine. Your destination: a fully-equipped campsite 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 located on raised platforms, protected against the bracing Patagonian elements. Inside, you’ll find double-height mattresses, cozy 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 and 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. 

Journey: 1.5 hours  / 90km

Meals: Dinner

Accommodation: Night in private deluxe tent 


Day 2: Full day of puma tracking

After a hearty early breakfast, your guide will pick you up from the camp to start your adventure in search of the puma. There will be hiking and tracking in various areas of the park and once found, there is a short opportunity to take photos of the puma (around 15 to 30 minutes), so as not to disturb these magnificent wild animals. 

A boxed lunch is served at Grey Lake area where we will try our luck in finding the elusive huemul (Andean deer) 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. At 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.

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

Hike: 8-10 hours guided tracking

Meals: Breakfast and boxed 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.
