Operator's Itinerary

Day 1: Transfer from Punta Arenas or Puerto Natales; Patagonia Camp

Transfer from Punta Arenas or Puerto Natales to the Patagonia Camp. After a long day of travel, take the evening to relax in the bar and lounge, enjoy the restaurant, or stretch your legs along the trails of the surrounding private reserve.

Meals: Dinner

Accommodation: Luxury yurt, Patagonia Camp


Day 2: Trek to the base of the Towers; Patagonia Camp

Today's trek is one of the most iconic routes in the national park and also physically highly demanding.

After crossing the Ascensio River we'll walk uphill for around 2.5km until reaching the Paso del Viento (480m), for a beautiful view of the pampa, the lakes to the south and the Ascensio Valley itself.

From there we'll descend to the Refugio Chileno shelter. Up to that point, vegetation is that of the pre-Andean scrubland bioclimate; from then on the vegetation changes completely, and as we climb we'll find ourselves amongst the ancient lenga tree forests until you reach the Glacier Torres moraine at 600m above sea level.

Once out of the forest, a final push of around 45mins of continuous uphill climbing will take us to the base of the Towers (870m), where we'll be directly in front of the three massive granite giants – the best reward for your efforts.

We'll return on the same path back down the valley and finish for the day at Patagonia Camp. Throughout the trek, you may get the chance to spot birds such as condors, mora eagles, caranchos and other birds of prey.

Length of hike: 8hrs, 22km

Difficulty level: High

Meals: Breakfast, picnic lunch, dinner 

Accommodation: Luxury yurt, Patagonia Camp


Day 3: Trek to the French Valley; Patagonia Camp

Today's experience starts at the Pudeto Dock where we'll take a 30min catamaran ride, crossing the icy cold turquoise waters of Lake Pehoe to the slopes of Cerro Paine Grande. Here we'll begin a trek full of scenic contrasts on our way into the French Valley.

After hiking up to Italian Camp, we'll continue ascending over an ancient glacial moraine and through a wooded valley to reach the French viewpoint. Soak up the stunning views from this amazing amphitheatre in Torres del Paine surrounded by glaciers and impressive walls of granite.

We'll return on the same trail and take the catamaran back across the lake before meeting our driver for a transfer back to Patagonia Camp.

Note: The catamaran ride has an additional cost of roughly USD $70 per person

Length of hike: 7hrs, 19km

Difficulty level: Moderate/high

Meals: Breakfast, picnic lunch, dinner

Accommodation: Luxury yurt, Patagonia Camp


Day 4: Trek to two viewpoints; Patagonia Camp

Today's excursion provides the ideal opportunity to see two of the most iconic sections of the Paine Massif.

During our first hike, we'll trek to the Salto Grande Waterfall, in the face of the Patagonian winds, to see its impressive cascade connecting two turquoise lakes. We'll then hike through a forest of silver, scorched trees to reach a viewpoint that will give us close-up views of the mighty Cuernos (Horns).

After a short transfer to the Pudeto Sector, we'll start our second trek by ascending straight to a rocky peak viewpoint which is home to condors and offers superb views of Lake Pehoe, the mountains surrounding the South Patagonian Icefield and Sierra Baguales.

We'll finish the day surrounded by the luxury of Patagonia Camp.

Length of hike: 2.5hrs + 2hrs, 6km + 3.5km

Difficulty level: Low/moderate

Meals: Breakfast, picnic lunch, dinner 

Accommodation: Luxury yurt, Patagonia Camp


Day 5: Trek to Glacier Grey viewpoint; Patagonia Camp 

First we cross Lake Pehoe by catamaran and then take the path to the on the western side of the W Trek, following the slopes of Mount Paine. We'll walk through a basin of sedimentary rock along a relatively flat trail until reaching the western slope of Paine Grande.

The trail then crosses gently undulating ravines until we reach Glacier Grey viewpoint where we'll have stunning panoramic view of icebergs floating on Lake Grey and the imposing Glacier Grey in the distance.

The viewpoint also gives us a taste of how wild the forces of nature are in this region in the form of the strong, freezing Patagonian winds.

We'll return on the same path and take the catamaran across Lake Pehoe back to Patagonia Camp.

Note: The catamaran ride has an additional cost of roughly USD $70 per person

Length of hike: 5hrs, 12km

Difficulty level: Moderate

Meals: Breakfast, picnic lunch, dinner

Accommodation: Luxury yurt, Patagonia Camp


Day 6: Transfer to Punta Arenas or Puerto Natales

Say farewell to your luxury yurt and enjoy a scenic transfer to Punta Arenas or Puerto Natales. Whether you plan to continue your Patagonian adventure, or take a flight back to the capital before returning home, you will leave this stunning place of peace and beauty with life-long memories.

The Patagonia Camp was the highlight for me in Torres del Paine, great place to stay, quiet, out of the way, small family atmosphere with all the guests, great staff and tours. The rooms are amazing and awesome views. The tours were very well run with fantastic food provided.

Patagonia Camp was superb, the service was exceptional and the yurts were very comfortable. We enjoyed the community there and meeting fellow travelers. It was a highlight each night to come back and enjoy good conversation about the days adventures over delicious wine and beautiful views.

Patagonia Camp was an awesome five days, we all loved that part of the trip. The staff was amazing, accommodations super and the overall vibe of the place was great. Met super people there.

Betty California, USA November 2017

We loved Patagonia Camp. A couple of staff at the lodge were so kind to me, and helped me by giving me hot lemon and ginger and honey which cured the cough I had. We loved several of the guides. It was in a lovely setting.
