Operator's Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival, The Patagonian Adventure starts

The trip begins with you being picked up from your hotel in Punta Arenas or Punta Arenas airport in the morning and driven to your accommodation, located in the world-famous Torres del Paine National Park. Alternatively, you can start your trip in Calafate.

En route you'll make a stop at Puerto Natales, a small, lively town on the shores of "Seno de Ultima Esperanza" where you'll enjoy a hearty local lunch. The journey is scenic and highly atmospheric, featuring many wild birds and wonderful Patagonian landscapes.

The day ends with your arrival and overnight stay at your camp, nestled in the heart of Torres del Paine National Park and with a prime view of the majestic Torres. Sunset is usually around 23:00 during the summer months, meaning that there will still be enough daylight for you to admire the Patagonian steppe with its guanacos and snow-peaked mountain horizon once you arrive. 

Meals: Lunch, dinner

Accommodation: Comfy dome camp


Day 2: Cycling to Laguna Azul and Cañadón Macho

After breakfast, you'll start your biking adventure. The roughly 7 km morning bike excursion follows a route inside the Laguna Azul estancia close to where it meets Baguales, heading up to Saltos Las Chinas.

Once you are back at Laguna Azul, you will enjoy your picnic lunch with a beautiful view of the Towers and when you are ready to continue, the van will take you to the next bike track.

This 4 km biking excursion follows a single track through Cañadón Macho, finishing at a junction with the road near Cascada Paine. Although the cycling is not too demanding, there are some sections of the trail that have some difficulty at the point where Cañadón Macho crosses a meadow and starts climbing, followed by an undulating stretch of descent, which is a little steep and rocky. 

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner

Accommodation: Comfy dome camp


Day 3: Kayak and boat trip to Grey Glacier

After an early breakfast at camp, at 07:30 you'll head to the Serrano area in the western part of the park, arriving to the Serrano Base at around 09:00. From here, you'll switch vehicles to head to the Pingo River. Following your safety briefing you'll be ready to launch into the water with your kayak, spending the day making your way 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 in between gigantic floating icebergs, eventually you'll come almost face-to-face with the mighty wall of the glacier itself, struck by the immensity of the iceberg and its myriad shades of blue.

You'll stop to eat your picnic lunch at Puente Grey before you continue downstream to the confluence of the Grey and Serrano rivers. After a short while you will then return to where you got into the water, transferring back to your camp for your evening aperitif and meal.

*Kayak: Minimum age is 15 year old / Maximum age is 65 years old 

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner

Accommodation: Comfy dome camp

NOTE: The boat trip is dependent on a minimum of 8 passengers as well as on weather conditions. It may also take a different route from that described above, visiting different sights. If it is cancelled, an alternative excursion in the park will be planned.


Day 4: Horseback Ride

One of the best ways to enjoy all that Patagonia has to offer is by riding through it on horseback. This excursion departs at 09:30, after you have had a hearty breakfast at camp. You will admire the most spectacular parts of Paine hill with a full day of horseback riding, covering 13km as you venture through forest and crossing streams, all the while surrounded by amazing greenery.

You'll start by making your way around the immense Lake Nordenskjöld, with its stunning views of Mount Almirante Nieto and Cerro Paine, passing over the ice-cold Patagonian rivers. You'll be treated by the local flora and fauna, from vibrant lenga forests to sightings of foxes and condors. Pick up the pace on the beach and then stop for your picnic lunch at the Paine River at around 13:00. After a few more hours riding you'll head back to camp ready to rest and reflect on the incredible sights.

Depending on your group you can decide to stay out riding past 16:00 or choose to head back to camp earlier and enjoy an evening cocktail. If you are a horseback riding fanatic this is the perfect adventure for you! If this excursion is cancelled because of climate conditions, it will be replaced by the trek to French Valley. 

Meals: Breakfast, lunch and dinner 

Accommodation: Comfy dome camp


Day 5: Trek to Cerro Paine

Today you'll hike from the camp to Cerro Paine, a nearby mountain characterised by its two imposing peaks. To begin with, you'll climb the eastern part of Cerro Paine. Cross the lenga forest with the sound of the local birds and enjoy a few stops to observe the immense Almirante Nieto Mountain and its glacier on the left side.

Feast on your picnic lunch and the full view of the Towers, before starting the steepest part of the hike which will see you climb over the rock, leaving the forest behind. As you ascend, take in the spectacular panoramic view of the pampas and the mountains in the distance, including Balmaceda mountain.

You'll ascend further for about an hour, reaching 1,500m elevation as you arrive at the eastern peak of Cerro Paine. An unforgettable lookout of the towers and the Ascencio Valley awaits. With this striking view firmly printed in your memory, begin your descent following the same trail down, to return to the camp for a well-deserved dinner.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch and dinner

Accommodation: Comfy dome camp
