Located in the Magallanes Region and 154 kilometers from Puerto Natales, Torres del Paine National Park is one of the most famous tourist attractions in the world. Every year, it hosts thousands of tourists and nature lovers, who come to see its incredible mountains, glaciers, flora and fauna.

Declared the year 2013 the “eighth wonder of the world”, this National Park of 227,298 hectares, was founded in 1959 under the name “Parque Nacional de Turismo Lago Grey”, being -at that time- livestock farming the main productive activity of the area.
