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.
