Adventure tourism activities:
Perhaps the quietest tour, but not less beautiful, that you can enjoy. The horseback ride on the Frías hill gives the opportunity to ride a horse without even having some knowledge. This activity gives one of the best panoramic views with Torres del Paine, Lake Argentino, Mount Fitz Roy and Boca del Diablo. In addition to all the flora and fauna that make up the place.
The tour ends in a barbecue area with a large clay oven where a delicious roast beef with grilled vegetables is prepared. An excellent activity to do with the whole family.
If you talk about trails and adventure in Patagonia, it must be said that several trekking excursions will surprise you with the beautiful trips they comprise. But we always recommend the Penguin Hike excursion, which, although not very required, allows a sensational experience walking with the penguins. For an hour you can be with them, while a specialized guide informs you about the flora and fauna of the place.
And not only that, but you will visit the Acutshún Museum of Marine Birds and Mammals and the Harberton Ranch, one of the oldest in Patagonia. In total it will be 6 hours of an excellent activity
If you want to enjoy one of the best zip lines in all of South America, then you must try the Cerro Frías zip line. This excursion consists of a total of 5 routes assisted by specialized guides, so that anyone can enjoy it. From the height you can see the Valle del Centinela and Torres del Paine, apart from a large number of animals such as cows, guanacos, hares and even wild ponies.
On the tour, high speeds will be reached, and a great adrenaline will be enjoyed. If you want to venture into Patagonia, then this activity you must try.
Mountaineering in Patagonia
For sure, mountaineering is the one to be done with the most caution. As easy as some circuits seem, the truth is that you have to be very careful. If you want to start in this we recommend starting on artificial walls with the advice of a guide. This activity is recommended to do outside of winter, when the weather conditions were not adverse.
In Patagonia you can climb heights that go from hills, to volcanoes and glaciers. Remember that for this type of activity if you need experience.
Tourism in Chilean Patagonia
We know that Patagonia is the preferred setting for many adventurers who need a good dose of adrenaline. And that sometimes they need several options to choose from. Extreme sports from the Chilean Patagonia side can be an excellent option. However, we are still working to bring you the best excursions on the Chilean side.
But if you still want to go to the Chilean side, we have an excursion that does it. Most tourists will enjoy Cerro Castillo National Park, where Torres del Paine is located, and where a multitude of activities can take place. In Full Day Torres del Paine is an excursion where you can visit a large part of the Park and get to know the Toro Lake, the Gray Lake and the Pehoé Lake.
