On our way from the pier to Torres del Paine National Park there are stunning views in every direction. Torres del Paine National Park covers an area of 242,242 hectares/935 square miles, featuring an outstanding combination of lakes, lagoons, waterfalls, glaciers, hills and peaks where you can observe different life forms in their natural habitats.
Inside the park, the road is surrounded by dozens of lagoons covered with grasses and aquatic birds, contrasting with small hills where herds of guanacos pasture. Turquoise lakes, waterfalls and mountains covered by ice are the predominant landscape inside the park.
Farther along, we encounter the Salto Grande (big waterfall) which forms quiet Pehoe Lake. Note that the visit to Salto Grande is subject to weather conditions.
After a photo stop we depart the park and return to Puerto Natales, driving across the Patagonia's deep pampas (Patagonian steppes).
