Natura Patagonia was created as the result of the experience gained operating for more than 20 year in the region of Magellan, Chile. Ricardo Matus has worked as a naturalist guide leading tours in this region since the early years of tourism in Magallanes, developing a high standard service for people interested in wildlife and specially in birds an marine mammals.

Natura Patagonia focuses the tours in Special Interest Tourism, for those with a particular interest in the fascinating natural history of southern Chile and Argentina. Our trips start in the Magallanes Region, sailing in the channels and fjords in the vicinity of the Strait of Magellan, to moving into the extensive Patagonian pampas and to the Torres del Paine National Park in the Andean Mountains. Our trips will also take us to the Beagle Channel at the foot of the amazing Darwin’s Range. Our specialty is bird and marine mammals watching in diverse environments. During these trips we shall be able to see over 100 species of birds (more than 20 endemic to the southern Patagonia area), 6 marine mammal species (including Humpback Whales, dolphins, seals and otters) and terrestrial mammals such as foxes, Andean Deer, Guanaco, and Patagonian Skunk. The variety of wild flowers in this region will delight visitors at all times during the spring and summer.
