- Queulat National Park
Ventisquero Queulat is a must when traveling through Carretera Austral (Route 7). This park offers a couple of short treks. Sendero Ventisquero Queulat is the highlight.
- Marble Caves in General Carrera lake
To get to the Marble Caves you have to take a boat from Puerto Tranquilo or go kayaking with a guide.
- Patagonia National Park
Same as Pumalin National Park, Patagonia National Park was built by Douglas Tompkins but recently donated to the state of Chile to protect it permanently. This park has a wide range of fauna (Guanacos, Pumas, Rhea, Flamingos and much more). There is a marvelous Museum about the history of the valley of this Park. Camping sites are well equipped to park your campervan.
- San Rafael Lagoon National Park
Driving into Bahia Exploradores from Puerto Tranquilo you will get to Puerto Grosse. Tour operators offer sailing to San Rafael Lagoon.
- Torres del Paine National Park
All the photos you have seen are nothing compared to what you will see with your own eyes when you arrive. Torres del Paine was chosen as one of the top eight wonders in the word.
