Operator's Itinerary

Day 1: Puerto Natales - Torres del Paine

Early in the morning you will depart with your guide on a bus from Puerto Natales to Torres del Paine. The trip to the park entrance at Laguna Amarga is approximately two hours.

After arriving to the park you will take the catamaran across Lake Pehoe before you begin a four-hour hike through a small forest and then along Lake Grey. Most days this section of the park is very windy, due to openness provided by Lake Grey, Glacier Grey and the Southern Ice Field. After about two hours of hiking you will get your first glimpse of Glacier Grey. You will continue hiking for two more hours until arriving to Camp Grey where you will spend the night.

There are two optional excursions you can take today in the afternoon or tomorrow in the morning while at Refugio Grey – ice hiking on Glacier Grey or kayaking on Lake Grey.

Meals: Lunch, dinner

Accommodation: Camping Grey

Hiking Distance: 11km


Day 2 : Lake Pehoe - Paine Grande

In the morning you will have an energizing breakfast and then prepare to hike again. If you would like you can continue past the camp with a day pack for a spectacular view of the glacier and a chance to cross one of the parks famous suspension bridges.

Upon return to Camp Grey, collect all of your belongings and begin your hike back towards Paine Grande where you will camp along the shore of Lake Pehoe.

Day 3 : French Valley - Torre Central

Shortly after breakfast you will begin hiking towards Campamento Italiano. This camp is 2.5 hours away. Once you arrive to Campamento Italiano you will hike across a moraine and through a forest until you come to a clearing. Here you will be blown away by both the wind and the spectacular views of Lake Nordenskjold, Skottberg and Pehoe behind you, the hanging French Glacier just ahead of you and by many other peaks.

After leaving the lookout you will return to Paine Grande to gather your things and take the catamaran back across Lake Pehoe. From here you will catch a bus and shuttle to Camping Torre Central where you will spend the night.

Hike steadily upward for two hours until you arrive at Refugio & Camping Chileno where you will be able to enjoy your lunch before continuing onto the Las Torres lookout. Traverse through a dense Lenga forest for one hour, then approach a moraine and climb until you see Las Torres — imposing granite peaks rising 9,000 feet into the air. This impressive sight will take your breath away!

After taking some time to relax in front of the majestic peaks, you will hike back down the moraine to continue hiking through the Asencio Valley, downhill to Camping Torre Central.
