The gateway to Torres del Paine …

The beautiful and remote Natales was founded in 1911 and inhabited primarily by Chileans from the city of Chiloé. Today, it is the transit city to Torres del Paine National Park, but also a destination on its own with various activities such as trekking, mountaineering and sport fishing.

Puerto Natales has a wonderful geography of uneven reliefs, valleys, fjords, archipelagos and the mysterious white of the ice fields. Other attractions are the Historical Museum, Plaza Arturo Prat and the Ether Aike Artisan Village.

Its airport, Teniente J. Gallardo, is located 6 kilometers from the city and only receives domestic flights. From Santiago, SKY, Latam and Jetsmart  airlines fly to the destination in approximately three hours.

The main shops are downtown: coffee shops, chocolate shops, restaurants and tourist agencies. Eberhard, Bulnes, Baquedano and Blanco Encalada streets are the busiest. It has a wide hotel network for all pockets.

In 2017, the city inaugurated the new Hospital “Dr. Augusto Essmann Burgos ”, located at Avenida España # 1650.

There are also exchange houses.
