Patagonia: W Trek, Perito Moreno & El Chaltén

Patagonia – Torres del Paine National Park. Is one of the most spectacular parts of the Patagonia region and the southern Andes; located at the southern tip of the Americas. The park is a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve and one of the most visited in Chile. Torres del Paine lies between the Andes Mountains and the Patagonian Steppe in southern Chile giving on to the Atlantic coast. So then, it is an area of great scenic beauty; with many ridges, crags, glaciers, waterfalls, rivers, lakes and lagoons.

Then; this itinerary will cover the striking pointed peaks and massive glaciers of the Paine Massif and Southern Patagonia Ice Field; along what is popularly known as the “W” route based on its circuit shape.

El Calafate & El Chaltén. El Calafate is a very charming town of double-pitched roofs and colorful gardens that always offers a friendly welcome to its travelers, plus it is also the gateway to the lakes, Andes and Southern Patagonian glaciers, namely the Perito Moreno Glacier. El Chaltén is a Patagonian small town often proclaimed as the «National Trekking Capital of Argentina,» but it is also well-renowned for amazing climbing, camping, horseback riding, fishing, rafting, and many other outdoor activities. You’ll participate in some famous treks, including Mt. Fitzroy, and other activities here in Patagonian Argentina.

Following in just over a week; you will trek through almost 65 miles (100 km) of trails and stay at a variety of lodges; shelters (refugios) or camping for the overnights. After all; this tour is best suited for experienced trekkers; or physically-fit adventurers who are willing to practice hiking trails with, at times, demanding conditions. Crowds of trekkers/travellers are more prevalent during the high season; which also overlaps with pleasant summer weather in the Southern Hemisphere.

Overall, the trip was very nice and James was helpful and responsive! I started with the O Trek in Torres del Paine in Chile together with the friendly guide Fransisco/Pancho and the amazing cook/porter Teo from Peru. Afterward, I had a few very nice day hikes with the guide Martin in El Chaltén, Argentina.

I agree with Ally, this was an amazing trek and it was even better than I had imagined it would be! Edu is an amazing guide, fun to chat with when walking, and very knowledgeable about everything Patagonia has to offer. He adapted quickly to the minor weather challenges we faced and ensured we saw everything planned! Additionally, Teo is an amazing chef. His ability to craft delicious 2-course meals at every stop is incredible and is something I wish I could do even when I have a full kitchen at home! Always with a smile, he carried a massive pack for the entire trip to ensure that we enjoyed delicious meals, and was always willing to laugh with us at our poor attempts at speaking Spanish.

A 5-star trek and I will make sure to get my reviews in on those websites to ensure this company can continue to grow and give others the amazing experience that we had.

I will write a review on Google as well. But wanted to say that I have nothing but amazing things to say about the tour! It was a great route. And I cannot speak more highly of Eduardo and Teo. Eduardo is a very knowledgeable, kind, enthusiastic guide. And Teo’s food was so delicious! It was always a treat to come back to camp and enjoy a warm, delicious & somehow different meal each time! 5 Star Trek, would recommend very highly!
