Operator's Itinerary

Day 1: Transfer to Torres del Paine National Park; EcoCamp Patagonia

The trip begins in the morning with you being picked up from either your hotel in Punta Arenas or from Punta Arenas Airport and driven to your accommodation in Torres del Paine National Park. Alternatively, you can start your trip in El Calafate or Puerto Natales.

En route, we'll stop in Puerto Natales, a small, lively town on the shores of 'Seno de Ultima Esperanza', where we'll enjoy a local lunch. This journey is through a very picturesque region – look out for wildlife.

The day ends with your arrival and overnight stay at EcoCamp Patagonia, nestled in the heart of the Torres del Paine National Park and with a prime view of the majestic Torres. Sunset is usually around 11pm during the summer months, so on arrival there will still be enough daylight for you to admire the Patagonian steppe with its guanacos and snow-peaked mountain horizon.

Meals: Lunch, dinner

Accommodation: EcoCamp Patagonia


Day 2: Bike at Laguna Azul and Cañadón Macho; EcoCamp Patagonia

After breakfast, the biking adventure starts with a 7km route inside the Estancia Laguna Azul, close to where it meets Baguales, heading up to Saltos Las Chinas.

Once back at Laguna Azul, we'll enjoy a picnic lunch with fantastic views of the Towers. Once rested the van will take us to the next bike track.

This 4km biking route follows a single track through Cañadón Macho, finishing at a junction with the road near Cascada Paine. The cycling isn't too demanding, but there are some more difficult sections, for example where Cañadón Macho crosses a meadow and begins ascending, followed by an undulating descent which is a little steep and rocky.

At the end of the ride we'll return to EcoCamp Patagonia.

Meals: Breakfast, picnic lunch, dinner

Accommodation: EcoCamp Patagonia


Day 3: Kayak on River Grey; EcoCamp Patagonia

At 7.30am we'll have an early breakfast at EcoCamp, before heading to the Serrano area in the western region of the park. We'll arrive at the Serrano Base at around 9am. From here, we'll change vehicles and head to the Pingo River. Following a 20-min safety briefing we'll be ready to launch into the water and spend the day kayaking around Grey Lake.

As you paddle out into the lake you'll head towards the eastern face of Grey Glacier, marvelling as you near it's impressive icebergs. Navigating between gigantic floating icebergs we'll eventually come almost face-to-face with the mighty wall of the glacier itself.

We'll follow the River Grey for around 3hrs and stop at Puente Grey for our picnic lunch before continuing downstream to the confluence of the Grey and Serrano rivers. Only 20mins from here we'll reach the end of the excursion at Villa Serrano, where our van will be waiting to take us back to EcoCamp for an aperitif and evening meal.

Day 4: Horse riding at Lake Nordenskjöld; EcoCamp Patagonia

One of the best ways to enjoy all that Patagonia has to offer is by riding through it on horseback. The day starts at 9.30am with a 1hr induction talk, after which we head out on our 13km ride, venturing through forest and crossing streams, all the while surrounded by amazing greenery.

We'll start by following Lake Nordenskjöld, accompanied by stunning views of Mount Almirante Nieto and Cerro Paine, before passing over freezing Patagonian rivers. The local flora and fauna along the route includes vibrant lenga forests and sightings of foxes and condors. Once we reach the beach, we'll increase the pace then stop for a picnic lunch at the Paine River at around 1pm. We'll ride until around 3pm before heading back to EcoCamp to relax for the evening.

Note: If this excursion is cancelled because of climate conditions, it will be replaced by the trek to French Valley. 

Meals: Breakfast, picnic lunch and dinner 

Accommodation: EcoCamp Patagonia


Day 5: Trek to Cerro Paine; EcoCamp Patagonia

After breakfast at EcoCamp we'll head to the twin peaks of nearby Cerro Paine. We'll hike along the mountain for 30mins, warming up and soaking up views of the surrounding pampas. The real challenge begins as we start ascending the eastern part of Cerro Paine. We'll navigate the lenga forest, accompanied by birdsong, and stop several times to take in views of the immense Almirante Nieto Mountain and its glacier on our left side. If we're lucky, we'll spot puma tracks around here.

The Towers come into full view and we'll have our lunch before starting the steepest part of the trek as the trail leaves the forest and covers rocky ground. As we ascend we'll have fantastic panoramic views of the immense pampas and the Balmaceda mountain in the distance. After ascending for an hour, we reach 1500m/4920ft and the eastern peak of Cerro Paine. From the viewpoint here we'll have an unforgettable view of the towers and the Ascencio Valley. After taking in one of the most stunning views of the national park, we'll return to EcoCamp along the same trail.
