Hunting for Fossils in Torres del Paine, Chile

6 DAYS IN SEARCH OF THE FOSSILIZED REMAINS & PREHISTORIC LIFE IN TORRES DEL PAINE

Trek back in time to Torres del Paine’s hidden valleys and canyons, where paleontology is very much alive and evidence of Patagonia’s prehistoric life awaits. Pour over Ichthyosaurus fossils, hike the Zapata Valley, and explore steppes dotted with the fossils of ancient leaves. This trek through ancient history weaves through secluded valleys, steppe, and canyons far from the park’s more crowded trails.
