Operator's Itinerary

Day 1: Free Time to Explore/ Relax

After being transferred to the hotel, you can spend the afternoon settling into the surroundings. Unwind in the swimming pool, Jacuzzi, or sauna; book a massage for later in the trip; or go for a relaxed wander around the area, uncovering some of the local wildlife. The location of the hotel showcases some of the best views of Torres del Paine massif, whetting your appetite for the exploration that lies ahead.

If time allows, you may be able to fit in an afternoon excursion for this first day.

In the evening, meet other travellers in the bar over a Pisco Sour - the chilean national drink - and enjoy a hearty dinner in the restaurant.

Meals: Dinner

Accommodation: Luxury Hotel


Day 2: Boat Trip & Walk to Glacier Grey Viewpoint

This classic trek begins with a 30 minute boat ride across Pehoe Lake. From here the trail winds up to the west, through Lenga forests and over rocky outcrops, towards Glacier Grey. The culmination of this excursion is an impressive viewpoint from which you can see the Southern Patagonian Ice field, and the icebergs that bob and float on the lake's surface. We return along the same path and transfer back to the hotel.

Difficulty: Medium  

Length of hike: 5 hours

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner 

Accommodation: Luxury Hotel


Day 3: Boat Trip & French Valley Hike

This excursion starts with a 30 minute boat ride across Pehoe Lake. We walk along a winding trail that passes the slopes of Paine Grande and the shores of Lago Skottsberg. There are great views of the Los Cuernos mountains on the way. Upon reaching the Italian Camp, we will cross a bridge over the French river and head up the French valley to the view point that sits below the world famous French Glacier. We will return along the same trail and take the boat for the last 30 minutes to the point where the van will take us back to the hotel.

Difficulty: High  

Length of hike: 8 hours

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner  

Accommodation: Luxury Hotel


Day 4: Hike the Torres del Paine

This world famous hike demands stamina, but the rewards are the impressive views of the three granite towers. This hike ascends strongly for one hour bordering the Rio Ascensio until reaching the Paso de los Vientos. From here it takes 30 minutes to reach Campamento Chileno where we can have a little rest.

The walk then continues to ascend through the forest for 1.5 hours, gaining altitude very quickly and with amazing views of the geological formations in the area such as folds, fractures and granite intrusions. The last hour is the most challenging and difficult, where the trail winds up thorough a moraine section of loose pebbles, there is exposure to the wind and the weather is unpredictable.

Arriving at the lookout we will have the classic view of the Torres del Paine and if the weather allows, we can have lunch with this fantastic landscape in front of us. We will descend along the same trail and it takes about four hours to reach the starting point, so it definitely requires good knees and a good level of fitness.

Ensure you dress suitability so that comfort is not a concern; rain pants, waterproof jacket, hat, gloves, fleece or any warm jacket, synthetic and breathable top, light hiking pants, hiking boots. Avoid wearing cotton, jeans and new shoes. This excursion is hard and strenuous if you are not used to long distance hikes.

Difficulty: High  

Length of hike: 7-9 hours  

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner 

Accommodation: Luxury Hotel


Day 5: Farewell Torres del Paine

Enjoy a filling breakfast before being taken to the airport. If your flight schedule allows, you may be able to squeeze in one last excursion or spa treatment.
