Rock Climbing in Puerto Natales

A good meeting point with its own natural beauties

Puerto Natales is the best starting point for an adventure in Torres del Paine National Park, Chile’s most famous natural wonder which attracts outdoor lovers from all over the world. As it’s the last city before entering the park, it’s also a good place to provide yourself food, gear, fuel and all kinds of supplies at a more affordable price. Rock climbing is one of the top activities in Torres del Paine, a mecca of big wall climbing with many classic routes on its granite spires. Besides being technically difficult and demanding an excellent physical condition, Torres del Paine’s climbing routes present an extra challenge: dealing with the strong and cold winds. Are you ready to challenge yourself in these mythical Patagonian walls? Check out all our programs and make your choice!  Explore-Share only promotes trips led by certified mountain guides.

More info about Rock Climbing in Puerto Natales:

Puerto Natales has the peculiarity of being located on the eastern slope of the Andes, unlike most other Chilean cities. And although it is at sea level, the area presents a gentle upward slope and is surrounded by both the hills that belong to the Andes, as well as other independent mountain ranges. A fantastic environment to prepare yourself and practice some rock climbing before venturing into Torres del Paine or other major challenges of big wall climbing
