Just look at a map of Torres del Paine and the colours will draw you in: the sprinkling of blue lakes in the south, the white ice cap to the west with it's white tongue of Glacier Grey and the green forest shrouding the grey towers, horns, spade and fortress peaks.

Key trekking routes in Torres del Paine

Torres del Paine's two most famous trekking routes are the W Trek and the O, or Full Circuit, both incorporating the Grey Lake, French Valley and Ascensio Valley. However, some of our favourite hikes take place off the beaten track: the Pingo, Silencio and Bader valleys are hidden gems that offer quieter paths and stunning scenery.  

For more on each of these treks visit our guides to the W TrekFull Circuit, and Trekking Off the Beaten Track
