Torres del Paine Trek
Torres del Paine Trek

The trails between the Torres del Paine’s famous craggy mountains are some of the world’s classic trekking routes. Breathtaking views with glaciers, rivers, lakes, forests, and abundant wildlife provide the trip with constantly changing scenarios and experiences. During summer (Nov-Mar), there are 18 hours of daylight, giving explorers plenty of time for the walking journey. This 7-day trek is our favorite trip in Torres del Paine National Park. It is the most comprehensive trekking trip in Patagonia that is suitable for active travelers who are both sensitive to nature and physically fit enough to make demanding hikes of 5-6 hrs/day. Because most of the walks start at one of our camps, just a daypack is carried on the tour. You may want to consider combining this trek with other areas of Chile or Argentina.
