One of the most special unspoilt natural areas in the world
The Torres del Paine National Park is regarded as one of the most outstanding natural areas in the world. Because of its unique flora, fauna and spectacular landscapes it was added to the Unesco list of World Heritage in 1978.
The national park covers an area of over 181,000 hectares. The park has roads for vehicles and paths for walkers. Torres del Paine has beautiful cliffs and rocks. Numerous large and small clear blue lakes are embedded in these rugged high mountain formations. Rivers flow into cascading waterfalls. The vast plains are part of the Patagonian Tierra del Fuego steppe and are interspersed with dense magellanic forests. The Grey, Tyndall and Balmaceda glaciers are remnants of a once much more extensive system.
The diverse landscapes and large differences in altitude create a diverse ecosystem where many animal and plant species can live. Patagonian steppe-grass, cypresses, coigu forests and calafari bushes can be found here. Wild life is also very diverse, such as Guanaco's, hare mice, red and grey foxes and even pumas can be spotted here.
