We will pick you up at your accommodations to travel around 15.5 miles to the north of Puerto Natales. The Cerro Benitez Trek is a trip to the past in the heart of the Chilean Patagonia. You will visit the archaeological park inside the Estancia Ernesto Helmer, where there are vestiges that indicate that the place was once immersed in the sea. There you will be able to make a medium difficulty hike to go through the valley, with its ravines and views of the surrounding mountains. In addition, it will be possible to have access to the condor’s nests on the way to the summit of the Cerro Benitez, from where you will be able to see the Eberhard Fjord and the Señoret Channel. In total, we are talking about a 6.2 miles trek that you will complete in about 3 hours.


During the same tour, you will visit the Ventana Cave and also the Escondida Cave, where you will have to use a headlamp and crawl, not more than 2.5 feet, to pass through the narrowest part. This cave has a 13 feet height and there you will be able to see stalactites formed because of the minerals’ accumulation and water. After that, you will go through a forest to Dos Herraduras, place where you will watch cave paintings in the rock walls. After a moment there, you will return to Puerto Natales to end the activity.
