Mountain biking, horseback riding, trekking, and an endless number of landscapes, flora and fauna, and architecture are the things that sum up 2022 in Parque Bahía Esperanza.
Just by looking around, you can discover a unique place in Chilean Patagonia. Lush forests, lagoons, fjords, pampas, and peat bogs are just some of the landscapes that can be seen in Parque Bahía Esperanza.
To discover its magic, during 2022 we have invited people from all places and of all ages to get on a horse, ride an electric bicycle or walk along various trails that lead to unique landscapes.
The fjords of Patagonia are one of these landscapes so characteristic of the place. These narrow sea inlets not only show geographical wonders but also speak of history. It is for this reason that in 2022 we inaugurated the main landmark of the park on which we have been working for months in a row.
Monumento Última Esperanza represents the bow of a 40-meter-long wooden ship that today stands over the fjords as the park’s main viewpoint and alludes to the discovery of the place since it was by boat and through the fjords that the pioneers arrived and discovered the lands where the park is currently located.
This ship seeks to be a key landmark of Chilean Patagonia, inviting people to discover and delve into the history of the Province of Última Esperanza, and explore as the pioneers did. The Monument invites you to cross Canal Señoret and discover Parque Bahía Esperanza, located just 15 minutes from Puerto Natales.
Horses have also been an essential part of 2022. They invite visitors to enjoy different activities in the park and to experience Patagonia with a deep connection to nature. During the year, they have received visitors with different levels of experience, who enjoy the luxury of silence and the Patagonian environment, surrounded by the southern sea.
The park’s mountain bike e-bikes have also welcomed people from all over the world who are looking for adventure and trails with views of the sea and landscapes of southern Chile. In the park, there are 5 trails available for MTB, all with different landscapes and difficulties.
And for all trekking lovers! Seven trails run through the park. They were built both to guide visitors through the park, as well as to take care of the environment. All of them give the possibility to get to know this magical place in Chilean Patagonia and, at the same time, avoid further erosion in the territory. Thus, regulated tourism contributes to protection, since visitors get to know the park through authorized places.
We close a great 2022 to give way to a better 2023. Happy New Year!
