Pali Aike: a perfect place for lovers of natural sciences and trekking
The Full Day Pali Aike visits the national park located about 196 km from Punta Arenas. This place is perfect for lovers of natural sciences, for its geological formations and for those who like trekking.
With an area of 5,030 hectares, its unique landscape is home to a variety of flora and fauna species typical of the arid steppe Patagonian environment. Its greatest attractions are its terrain covered by basaltic lava, which determines its geological characteristics and the life that lives there.

Pali Aike you will be impressed with its history and geological formations
Just like a lunar landscape, you will be impressed with the geological formations of this beautiful place. Due to 3 periods of strong eruptions, most of the terrain is volcanic lava, dominated by cones and basaltic lavas.
12,000 years ago the first humans arrived at this site, occupying some areas as a shelter. In addition to living with the mega fauna of the time, some of these animals served as food for humans.
It should be noted that Pali Aike means desolate place or place of evil spirits, in the Tehuelche (aonikenk) language. For this reason, its lands are full of stories, starring prehistoric animals such as the mylodon, Aonikenk natives, explorers, ranchers and scientists.
