Dickson Valley & Glacier

Dickson Lake and Glacier are found in the northern part of the famous Torres del Paine National Park in Chilean Patagonia. Only 5% of visitors to the park come to see the beauty of this valley, which is visited on the Full Circuit trek of Paine as opposed to the W Circuit, which takes in the highlights of Las Torres, Valle Frances and Glacier Grey.

Dickson has a campsite and Refugio for trekkers and bikers, who come this way on guided mountain biking tours. To find out more about visiting Lago Dickson, see our Torres del Paine page.
