Experience the park through the eyes of gauchos whose families have been living and working on this land for hundreds of years Enjoy authentic Patagonian hospitality at one of the many working Estonia, where the views stretch for miles and the decor hints at a more rustic past You can even leave the park on horseback and spend a few days travelling south along the Serrano River towards Puerto Na tales, and on to your next adventure.
Whether you're looking for fast-paced, technical riding, a chance to trek across the park with your gaucho guides, or just to spend days exploring the wilderness, TorresdelPaine will not disappoint. Consider whether you are happy to camp out under the stars or want the luxury of a bed and hot shower every day, and whether you would like to visit some many working Estonia in the park.
Many of the lodges include a few horse riding excursions as part of their all-inclusive packages, so you can spend a day exploring TorresdelPaine on horseback before returning to a luxurious private room in the evening. Not only can you choose your excursions the night before, factoring in the weather and how your legs are feeling, you can intersperse horse riding with day hikes, fly-fishing or bird watching.
A trip for experienced riders, you'll enjoy the fast pace & spend 4 – 7 hours in the saddle each day. Dotted around the national park are several working Estonia, each of which act as a great base for a day or two of horse riding.
It's one of your best opportunities to learn about the history and culture of Patagonia, and to meet some families that made this harsh landscape their home. Others are a little more upmarket, but all are situated in remote corners of the park, allowing you the freedom to explore off the beaten track.
Anything from half a day to two weeks depending on what type of ride you prefer, where you want to stay, and how long you want in the saddle! Sasha Pierre The staff at Chile Native were so helpful with our PRE trip inquiries.
They worked after hours to help me find a private car that was willing to drive me from El Carafate to Puerto Na tales in Chile. Peter Newman Working with Chile Native was a very positive experience.
Everyone we worked with was communicative and helpful, and we felt well-prepared given the information (e.g. packing list) they provided. The most important benefit of traveling with Chile Native was our access to one of their guides, Fernando. I cannot give enough positive feedback for Fernando.
Any question we had about a tree, for example, Fernando could answer, and then provide several layers more detail and information. I’ve never been hugely into geology, but Fernando’s knowledge of the rock formations in the park added a fascinating element to our hike; everything around us became even more interesting.
By the afternoon of the first day, it felt as though we were hiking with a good friend who happened to know everything about the park. The entire time, I felt that we were getting the very most out of our hike, and that Fernando knew the tips and tricks to avoiding crowds and getting the best views.
The initial planning and email correspondence leading up to our trip was... professional and seamless. They even took care of adding on and planning an additional leg to our trip to Argentinean Patagonia with a reliable local company there.
Adrienne Bunt Robot ham We had a once in a lifetime experience with Chile Native and Felipe which we will never forget. Felipe was incredibly knowledgeable about the area, the fauna, flora and even the geology (which impressed me as I’m a geologist!!).
Felipe’s English is perfect, his cooking was delicious, and we felt very much at home during our trip. Our kayaking was cancelled due to very extreme weather, and Felipe not only found an alternative for the day for us, but also arranged for a generous refund. There was an issue with our international bank payment (through no fault of Chile Native’s) and the entire team continued to communicate with us and chase the payment at their end for weeks.

The route (thanks to Cecilia), the Refugio, the adjustments to plan (thanks to Valentina in the Puerto Na tales office), the warm hospitality (namely from Luis the van driver) and the overall organization left us with so little to have to think about that we could focus solely on enjoying ourselves...and on weathering the elements!

This is an extensive network of trails, roads and swinging bridges used by locals on horseback, oxcart and by foot. These trails move through the spectacular isolated river valley of the high tributaries of the Futaleufu These trails lead us back in time, to a simpler way of life, through nearby villages and quaint rural homes.
The Pioneer Culture: “Trail of the Lakes” is meant for horseback riders with some casual riding experience or agile beginners. While the weather is usually good in the late Patagonia Summer, significant storms are possible off of the Southern Pacific Ocean.
On average, we will ride four to six hours a day over incredibly varied and challenging terrain. The Corral came about because of the need of the Chilean equestrian culture for a superior horse breed in this region of Patagonia.
Our saddles are leather sheepskin covered “Huaso-saddles” designed specifically for the type of trail riding you will do in this region of Patagonia, Chile. At the beginning of your Chile horseback riding vacation our guides will spend a significant amount of time introducing you to the Chilean style of riding.
Typically, you will spend four to six hours a day in the saddle, riding at a moderate pace. There will be ample opportunity to gallop the horses in the open fields and on trails if you so desire.
We will visit small remote working ranches, outposts, and settlements sprinkled across a landscape free of roads and any other traces of modern society in Patagonia, Chile. We will be staying each night at different ranches or cabins, all equipped with bed and linens and home-cooked meals.
Our Chilean hosts are selected by Expeditions Chile because we have loved staying with them for over ten years. Just one week out of every summer we offer our guests the chance to join our 7-day journey across the Andes.
This trail was once the only link between the coastal port of Chasten and Futaleufú; used by locals and police officials up until 1975, when the Carrera Austral finally opened. For the past thirty years Expeditions Chile has been running safe vacations in this region of the world.
