Patagonia – Torres Del Paine ‘W’ Trek

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.

Following in just over a week; you will trek through almost 40 miles (60 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.

This tour was an amazing experience in Torres del Paine. James was very helpful and timely in his responses and to my changing holiday plans. Andres the guide was very knowledgeable and friendly, and his connection to the national park made the experience more special. Even the unpredictable weather made this trip truly unforgettable!
