For a short time, the park is open to the public for free. There are many attractive options for trekking (one or several days) in the spectacular landscapes, and visitors can also do animal watching, kayak tours and fly fishing. For tourists who would like to stay in the park longer, there is a luxury lodge and a well-equipped camping site. It is possible to visit the park via rental car from Cochrane, Chile Chico and Río Tranquilo.
Douglas Tompkins is planning to give the land to the Chilean government this year on the condition that they will join it with the Tamango and Jeinimeni natural reserves, creating an enormous 265,000 ha national park called “Parque Patagonia.” An extension of the hiking paths and a museum are also in process.
