"Gateway to adventure" Puerto Natales by kyoub

Puerto Natales Travel Guide: 137 reviews and 320 photos

Springtime

December is late spring in Chile.
The countryside is all in bloom. The mountains are still capped with snow.
Torres del Paine is in the background and Puerto Natales is the gateway to get there.

Bright houses

We had beautiful mountain scenes from our hotel.
The houses are all brightly painted with rust colored roofs.
The colors depict the happiness of the people that live here.

    Puerto Natales looks like a great little spot to get away from it all - and you really got way south for this destination! Thanks for the tips! I just wish that my wife and I had been able to travel a bit more in this part of the world.

    Good tips. Plenty of meat? Wow, it's a place for me! Strong winds? Haha, I survived them in Arizona, USA and in Western Sahara.
