Operator's Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival in Puerto Natales

You will be transferred to your luxury base in it's unique location in Torres del Paine National Park. Take the opportunity this evening to relax and explore the reserve before your adventure begins tomorrow.

Accommodation: Luxury Villa 

Meals: Dinner


Day 2: Hike to the Base of the Torres or Fossil Trail

  • Hike to the Base of the Torres

This challenging trek is the most sought after in the National Park and for a very good reason, the prize being an up-close and personal view of the "Torres". You will feel that you are standing in the middle of the most famous postcard of the area, just at the base of the towers next to a glacial carved lagoon and witness over 12 million years of geologic mastery in the granite that shaped them. To reach this gem, you will have to negotiate several obstacles: a climb up 800m of irregular terrain, strong winds, changing weather, and different ecosystems.

OR

  • Fossil Trail

Enter the La Cumbres Baguales Geological and Paleontological Park and experience walking in a highland steppe landscape. Visit places where you can observe and get to know about the flora and fauna that existed there over the last 40 million years. Plants, mollusks, sharks teeth and tree trunks are part of these vestiges that appear fossilized amidst deep valleys and cliffs. Guanacos will accompany you on this tour, where the surroundings are dominated by rocky formations of great beauty and appeal.

Accommodation: Luxury Villa 

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner


Day 3: French Valley or Lazo-Webber 

  • French Valley

Valle del Frances or Frenchmans Valley, is what many people consider the best section of the "W" circuit. You will climb steep moraines and may witness roaring ice breaking off the Frances glacier. A little farther up, imposing peaks and immense granite rock faces come into view while providing a 360-degree view of the heart of the Paine massif. This excursion is long, and requires you to take a catamaran ride across Lake Pehoe that presents a lovely view of the massif.

OR

  • Lazo-Webber

This excursion begins just outside Estancia Lazo. From here you will enter the National Park passing by the southern shore of Laguna Verde, with unique vistas of the Paine massif. After walking through ancient Lenga forests below the slopes of Sierra del Toro, you will arrive at one of the most amazing viewpoints showcasing the unique beauty of the extreme southern part of the National Park. This enchanting tour ends at Weber Bridge, where the Paine River flows into the Toro Lake.

Accommodation: Luxury Villa 

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner


Day 4: Laguna Azul or Mirador Ferrier 

Why not enjoy a half-day excursion today, giving you the opportunity to take some free time to explore before your departure tomorrow.

  • Laguna Azul

An excellent place to view a variety of local bird species such as the Caiqun (Upland Goose), Pato Juarjual (Crested Duck) and Tagua (Red-Gartered Coot), Laguna Azul is a birdwatchers paradise. In addition, sighting of guanacos (rheas) is a common feature along the way. You will be charmed by a stunning view of the Torres del Paine, as well as with the perfect blend of Patagonian steppe and mixed forest.

OR

  • Mirador Ferrier

Ferrier Overlook: Looking for a reward for your efforts? This is the perfect option to marvel at many of the wonders the park has to offer. Thanks to the panoramic view from this spot, you can appreciate the endless lakes, fast-flowing rivers and a large part of the imposing Paine massif.
