Calafate to Torres del Paine: Arranging your itinerary

Whether you plan to hike self-guided, or enlist a local Chilean mountain guide, and whether you'd prefer public or private transport we can help you arrange all the logistics and accommodation from the moment you land in El Calafate airport. We have plenty of experience of helping people to adapt things according to their timings, budget and travel styles.

A typical programme that we might help arrange for someone might include:

  • lunchtime arrival at the airport, private trip to visit the Perito Moreno glacier in the afternoon (avoiding the crowds)
  • night in comfortable and friendly mid-range hotel in El Calafate
  • early morning bus over to Torres del Paine
  • self-guided W hike in Torres del Paine (with all accommodation, food, boat and road transport pre-arranged)
  • return to Puerto Natales (perhaps via a 2 day kayak expedition) for an evening of good food, rest and celebration
  • return journey to El Calafate for your onwards flight, or possibly a visit to Mount FitzRoy and El Chalten

If you have 10-14 days in the region and are a keen hiker then a good option might be to join one of the tours that includes the W Circuit in Torres del Paine AND 3-5 days of trekking around Mount FitzRoy in Los Glaciares National Park.
