“Thank YOU for such a spectacular itinerary! Every corner of Torres del Paine has some jaw-dropping, “is this even real?” scenery. We thought this flat rock overlooking an emerald lake would be a good place for a lazy afternoon reading a book. But our guide warned us that pumas might come to visit!” —Camille, Knowmad Traveler | Custom Chile and Argentina Trip | April 2024

Knowmad Traveler sees a puma close up in Torres del Paine, Chile

“We were told seeing a puma was a rare event. We hiked to see the petroglyphs and, while taking photos, we heard our guide yell, “Pelo, pelo, pelo” and turned to find this guy strolling by us about 40 feet away. After standing like statues for 20 minutes he finally decided to settle down for a snooze and we snuck by. You almost want to lean over to rub his belly….” —Alexis, Knowmad Traveler | Custom Chile Trip | September 2023
