Search for puma in Torres del Paine

Go puma tracking in Torres del Paine National Park, Chilean Patagonia.

While you’ll be surely thrilled by the soaring towers and serrated massifs of Torres del Paine, the rich and varied wildlife of this spectacular national park comes as a surprise. Undoubtedly the most sought-after sighting is of the Andean mountain lion or puma. They are well camouflaged against the tawny steppes and rocky outcrops, so to spot them in a typically short visit to the park requires skill and patience.

But your chances are good here, as you are guided by an experienced tracker familiar with their habitat and movements. This guided experience gives priority to finding and photographing a puma or two while you enjoy the splendour of the national park’s landscapes. You’ll venture out in small groups with your trackers and spend much of the day in pursuit of a glimpse of these graceful creatures – not guaranteed, but in such a gorgeous place it’s a worthwhile activity in any event.
