Itinerary

Arrive in Puerto Natales and check in to
your hotel. Time to stock up on some snacks
and have your pre trek briefing.

Morning bus to Torres del Paine. Meet your
porters and set off across ancient glacial
moraines and through a beech forest, on the
way to Camp Serón.

Continue along the foothills of Cerro Paine
and skirting Lago Paine, with incredible views
of the peaks of the Paine Massif. Camp at
Lago Dickson on the edge of the Southern
Patagonian Ice Cap.

Hike west toward the immense Patagonia Ice
Cap. Cross through primeval beech forest with
a great chance to see the incredible red-headed
Magellanic woodpecker.

Today is the most exhausting and impressive part
of the trek. Hike up to the Paso John Garner, and
be rewarded with a striking view over rugged,
glaciated peaks and the Southern Patagonian
Ice Cap. Scale down to the treeline and enter the
forest along the left bank of the Grey Glacier.

Free time to enjoy the area as well and recover
from yesterday’s hike.

Hike south past Grey Lake to the beautifully
turquoise Lago Pehoe. From here we walk
towards the French valley along the splendorous
Lago Skottsberg.

The French Valley is the most beautiful in the park
and one of the most unique in the world; hanging
glaciers and an amphitheatre of granite walls
and spires surround it. The “Mirador Británico”, considered by many as one of the most
overwhelming spots in the Circuit.

Hike along the extraordinary turquoise Lake
Nordenskjöld to our right and the Cuernos Peaks
and hanging glaciers, to our left.

Our final day of hiking is the park’s most
famous. Walk through a millenary Lenga forest
and ascend the moraine to one of the most
impressive lookouts in the park: “Base of Torres
del Paine” where you will have the view of all
Torres and Cerro Nido de Cóndor. Return by bus
to Puerto Natales.

Transfer to Bus station for onward travel.
