ABOUT Parque Nacional Pan de Azúcar

One of the geographical advantages of Chile is the extensive border that it shares with the Pacific Ocean. Almost infinite, to the southernmost point in the world, the Pacific Ocean has provided Chile with great benefits and unparalleled landscapes. On the border with the sea, the Pan de Azúcar National Park emerges, a beautiful park in northern Chile.

This park was declared a nature reserve in 1985. It comprises more than 74,000 hectares that go from the Antofagasta Region, through the Atacama Region, until a small part of it extends to the Pan de Azúcar Island. Since its foundation, the flora and fauna of the park have been part of the nature reserve that seeks to preserve the species that inhabit the area.

The fauna of the Pan de Azúcar National Park is characterized by more than 18 species of cactus, all of them endemic. The fauna of the park is one of the attractions of the park, since tourists come to see the animals that inhabit it. Of all, marine animals are the ones that attract the most attention, since you can see sea otters, South American sea lions and even colonies of Humboldt penguins.

The Pan de Azúcar National Park offers numerous activities, among the most popular are the viewpoints towards the sea. Irregular rock surfaces outline the park's border with the Pacific Ocean. The sea expands untamed while the land shows its semi-desert landscape, typical of northern Chile. From the Pan de Azúcar viewpoint you can see beautiful sunsets and marine fauna in their natural habitat. Las Lomitas are a well-known spot where it’s possible to watch continental flora and fauna.

The park's vegetation thrives on coastal fog, a condition that generates humidity in the area. It is very hot in summer and cool during winter. In Pan de Azúcar National Park you can find establishments that sell typical food of the region, nurseries and transportation to the viewpoints and campsites. In the surroundings you can find cabin-type accommodation with all the comforts for spending the night.
