Itinerary

Day 1

Arrival to Puerto Natales – Welcome Dinner & Briefing

  • Transfer from the Airport to Puerto Bories
  • Briefing and E-Bike Fitting
  • Welcome Dinner
  • Night at Bories Boutique Guest House (double rooms with private bathrooms)
  • (D)

Meet a Chile Nativo transfer waiting for you outside of Puerto Natales Airport to bring you to your hotel, directly in front of Bories Port with impressive views of the Seno de Última Esperanza, Balmaceda Glacier and the surrounding mountains.

Once settled in, you will participate in a pre-trip briefing at our headquarter, during which you and the guides will go over every detail of the trip and test out the e-bikes.

Afterwards, enjoy a delicious dinner in a local restaurant before cozying up in your room.

Day 2

E-Bike Ride to Mylodon Cave & Cerro Castillo town

  • E-bike ride to Puerto Prat, Puerto Consuelo & Mylodon Cave (20 kms/12.4 mi gravel road & 4 kms/2.5 mi paved road)
  • Transfer to Estancia Complejo Torres del Paine (30 min) & optional bike ride to Cerro Castillo (35 kms/ 21.7 mi gravel road)
  • Night at Hostería El Pionero (double rooms with private bathrooms)
  • (B – BL – D)

Wake up to a freshly prepared breakfast before cycling alongside Eberhard Fjord to Puerto Pratt, the first Chilean town officially created in 1899 with the purpose of consolidating Chilean territory in Última Esperanza. Continue to Puerto Consuelo, an estancia founded in 1893 by Hermann Eberhard while he was searching for suitable land to farm sheep. From his settlement, Eberhard explored the area and eventually discovered the Mylodon Cave, your next stop!

Declared a historic monument in 1968 and a national monument in 1993, the Mylodon Cave holds countless stories of some of the first groups of humans on the continent. Men and women, who we first heard about in 1985 when Eberhard discovered prehistoric Mylodon skin remnants, found refuge from unpredictable weather in the cave while on the lookout for this wild megafauna. After a stroll inside the cave, hop on a transfer to the beginning of Castillo Viejo Road.

Optional: Pedal for thirty-five kilometers on Castillo Viejo Road alongside beautiful Patagonian landscapes before arriving at Villa Cerro Castillo to rest and reward yourself with another amazing meal prepared by your private chef.

Currently, it extends about 13,000 hectares, on which livestock farming was its main activity for more than forty-five years. With hard work and perseverance, the family business managed to diversify activities to include tourism, so that, today, we can enjoy panoramic landscapes of Paine and Sierra Baguales, your next destination.

A: Tipping can be a delicate subject and many different nationalities have different tipping cultures. Tips or propinas in Chile, are viewed as a reward for good service. When tipping, a good guide and guide assistance who does the job well, has good English and provides a great service, can expect 10 – 15 USD per person per day. It is usual to leave your driver or chauffeur a tip too. Normally around 5 USD per person.  Please find below a tipping guide:

Guides USD$ 10 to USD$ 15 per person, per day; to be given to your guides directly.

Staff (waiters, chefs,Housekeeping USD$5 per person, per night

Drivers:  USD$10 per person, per day; given directly to your drivers.

Porters: USD$10 per person, per day; given directly to your porter

These amounts are merely a source to help you or give you a general idea of what is normal or typical. Of course, tipping is always at the discretion of the group members as to what they deem appropriate for the service they received.

Reviews

As horse lovers from the Netherlands and looking for a new unforgettable experience we decided to look for a horse ride in the Patagonia area. After some search on the internet we came to the Chile Nativo site and found a perfect ride for us. From our point of view we had an incredible trip and would recommend Chile Nativo for arranging you’re riding tour, giving you the opportunity to really enjoy. For horse riding and nature lovers the thing to do at least once in a lifetime.

Jasper Brugman, Netherlands

I was blown away by this trip and will absolutely be back to experience Patagonia on Horseback again. Everyone from the office staff to the guide, to the Gauchos, and our driver was professional but fun, and the experience was better for getting to know these people. Being in the backcountry and seeing the landscapes up close was one of the most amazing things I have ever done.

Amazing trip! We joined the Torres Del Paine 7 day O trek tour - note that this tour is not a complete O Trek but skipping the part from Camp Frances to Las Torres, which worked in our favour as our holiday is limited and we won’t miss much. Our guide, Debbie was knowledgeable and amicable, and very passionate about hiking. Unfortunately I fell sick during the hike and wished to leave a day earlier than planned. Debbie and Chile Nativo quickly rearranged transportation for us and was very helpful. Throughout the whole process Chile Nativo was very responsive. We had a memorable journey and I would highly recommend Chile Nativo.

Fantastic experience! We were booked with Chile Nativo via Swoop and had a wonderful experience. Our guides, Tim & Lucile, were awesome. We really enjoyed their company. They were very knowledgeable about the region (the history, animals, landscape, etc). Highly recommend.

I booked the independent, self-guided Torres Del Paine trek with Chile Nativo’s help and was so glad I did. When I looked to book on my own, everything was all reserved in Torres Del Paine and Chile Nativo was the only agency that could help me find a spot still. To still be able to go on the trip when I wanted to go, to not have to spend so much time planning all the logistics, to get a local’s recommendations on the best way to do the trek…but STILL get to do the trek on my own was amazing and worth every penny. In particular Paolina at the agency was incredibly helpful. I would recommend this agency to anyone looking to hike in Torres del Paine.

Hiking in Torres with Pepa is like walking with your smartest and wisest friend. She has an incredible depth of knowledge in everything from mycology to government, from geology to history. She is fiercely passionate about conservation and our planet and has dedicated her life to making our world a better place. Our two porters Filipe and Bastian were both incredibly strong and highly professional. Always in the know on where to set up the tent, they picked the best spot in every site we were at. Also, they were an absolute blast to hang out with after the long days hiking. I cannot recommend this particular team highly enough and if you are passionate about the environment, making the world a better place, learning everything there is to know about glaciers, mushrooms, Patagonia, the history of Chile, magma intrusions and edible berries request them by name. Thank you to all three of you for making our experience so special and I hope our paths cross again.
