This national park covers 181.000 hectares on the Seno de Ultima Esperanza (Last Hope Inlet). The park is located 150 kilometers from Puerto Natales.

There are many hiking paths that cross widely differing types of terrain, such as pampas and thick Magellanic forests, and run along lakes with huge glaciers and icebergs. The park is surrounded by huge, craggy mountains, including the famous Cuernos del Paine (Paine Horns).

There are seven guard stations in the park, the largest being the Administrative Center. Hikes, camping, mountain climbing, fishing and horseback riding excursiones can be arranged from these sites. There are refugios (simple wooden shelters) throughout the park for overnigh accomodations.

Tourists are strongly urged to visit the offices of CONAF and SERNATUR (Servicio Nacional de Turismo, the national tourism board) in Punta Arenas or Puerto Natales. These offices can provide much-needed information about what equipment and supplies need to be carried into the park.
