Hunter’s Trail: A Close-up of Indigenous History
Witness remnants of the indigenous Aonikenk culture, part of the regional heritage of Patagonia on this hike. The Aonikenk were hunter-gatherer nomads who used the rocks as a canvas to convey messages to one another, which we can still see to this day in the form of cave paintings displayed on rocky outcrops.
We start by making our way in a northerly direction towards the Paine Massif which accompanies us throughout our walk, its striking silhouette dominating the skyline. We’ll also get the chance to see some wildlife, including guanacos, foxes and maybe a soaring condor. The excursion finishes at the Portería Laguna Amarga, where our van will be waiting for us.
