Located 250 km northwest of Punta Arenas, Puerto Natales is located in front of the Última Esperanza Sound between the sea, forests and Patagonian mountains. The city represents the gateway to Torres del Paine National Park and the ideal excursion base from which to visit a myriad of other outstanding alternatives offered by Chilean Patagonia.

From his settlement, Eberhard explored the area and eventually discovered the Mylodon Cave.

Currently, it extends about 13,000 hectares, on which livestock farming was its main activity for more than forty-five years.

Away from busy tourist attractions, the Hacienda 3R in Sierra Baguales offers the peace and rawness that characterize Patagonia, an environment remaining detained in time, optimal for contemplation and breathing in Patagonian life.
 
In 2018, Hacienda 3R opened its doors to the public, allowing for tourist exploitation on some demarcated trails. To not interfere with the landscape and its inhabitants, the trails are not marked, so visits to the hacienda are led by guides.

Difficulty

Intermediate: You’re active on your days off, and recreational biking may even be your weekend sport of choice. You love to ride, and it shows in your endurance and strength.

Our intermediate e-bike tours offer a steady but active pace (between 3 to 5 hours), with opportunities to push yourself. Expect some climbs, with great descents over rolling terrain. The pedal-assisted electric bike will help you tackle any challenges.

Average distance per day: 20-30 miles / 30-50 km.

Bike Rental

In Patagonia we have one e-MTB model available.

  • E-bike Giant Talon E+ 29 2 MTB

Helmets & Pedals

Most riders choose to bring their own helmets, but if you prefer, we have a small number of helmets available on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.  Please let us know in advance if you’d like to use one.  

All our bikes are equipped with wellgo platform pedals. We will be happy to substitute any pedals you choose to bring.  

Safety

Chile is by far one of the safest countries in South America in terms of public health and crime.

We are proud to affirm that our police is one of the least corrupt in the world; they are always friendly and helpful.  

Road Safety

Besides your own on-road safety gear (helmet, rear view mirrors, bright colored jerseys and gloves), we provide a support vehicle that drives at the rear of the group with a road-sign alerting other drivers the presence of bike riders on the road.

Drivers in Chile are used to bicycles on the road, so they shouldn’t bother you while riding. All our staff communicates by radio at all times.

Weather notes

We suggest visiting the web for current conditions in Chile and doing your own research on this topic. www.meteochile.cl/ or www.accuweather.com

The vast unbroken stretch of ocean to the west and south of the South American continent leaves the Patagonian Andes very exposed to the saturated winds that circle the Antarctic landmass. Also, the influence from the strong marine currents and Southern Patagonian Ice field make the weather hard to predict.

In Torres del Paine, in spring or early summer, fine weather may deteriorate almost without warning, bringing rains and eventually snow. Even in summer (December to march) you should come prepared to find cold, strong winds (up to 130 km/hr) and rainfalls.

The summer’s average temperature is 11ºC / 52ºF (24ºC max, 2ºC min). Rest assured, however, that just as quickly as the weather turns nasty, it can become pleasantly warm!

Night-time temperatures will most likely range from –1°C to -5°C (30s and 40s F) depending on the weather.
