Visiting Paine & Fitz Roy: Your Question's Answered
Here we'll answer some of the most frequently asked questions about visiting these two regions. If there's anything else you'd like to know, please don't hesitate to ask us a question.
Visiting these national parks allows you to trek to the base of mile high granite peaks and sapphire blue lakes in Torres del Paine, hike to breathtaking viewpoints of Mount Fitz Roy from the small town of El Chalten, see the famous Perito Moreno Glacier, horseride, ice hike, kayak, fish, mountain bike and more.
We'd recommend at least 2 weeks to explore both national parks, which allows enough time for travelling. With this timescale, you could spend 4 to 5 days in Torres del Paine hiking the famous W Trek and 3 or 4 days in El Chalten, where you could do a few day hikes to some of the most spectacular viewpoints of Mount Fitz Roy.
If you have more time than this, you could hike the full circuit or get off the beaten track in Torres del Paine. In Los Glaciares National Park, you could take on a multi-day trek around Fitz Roy, such as the Huemul Circuit.
Torres del Paine and Los Glaciares National Parks lie on opposite sides of the Chile-Argentina border and in total it takes around 6 hours by road to travel between them.
You can either join a group tour which visits both national parks and includes transport between them, or choose separate treks in each destination and let us help you travel between the two by public bus or private transfer.
Yes! While the trekking is what draws the majority of people to these destinations, both regions offer a huge variety of activities.
For example, if you're into wildlife or photography, there are puma tracking trips available in Torres del Paine. The Rio Serrano, which flows out of Torres del Paine National Park, provides opportunities for kayaking and fishing, while the estancias around both El Chalten and Torres del Paine are perfect bases for horse riding. You can also take boat trips in both national parks to see some of the stunning glaciers.
Patagonia is a vast region and is home to many varied landscapes. In the Lake District, for example, you'll find verdant forests and plentiful lakes, providing opportunities for kayaking, rafting, and trekking. Tierra del Fuego is a wild and windswept land at the southernmost point of Patagonia, where you can trek in the mountains, sail on the Beagle Channel or see wildlife and plants on a day-hike or four wheel drive excursion. Taking an adventure cruise between Punta Arenas and Ushuaia allows you to get up close to Magellanic penguins and hanging glaciers, as well as setting foot on Cape Horn.
