Day 1: Arrive in Torres del Paine

In the morning you will take a bus from El Calafate to Puerto Natales. Upon arrival in Puerto Natales you will have a bit of time to have lunch and stretch your legs before we get in our private vehicle that will take you to Torres del Paine National Park. You will go along an alternative road that has spectacular views of Lago Toro, Glacier Grey and the Paine Massif as you get closer to the park. In the evening you will spend the night a hotel on the edge of Lake Pehoe called Hotel Pehoe.

Day 2: Enter the French Valley, Pehoe - Britanico

After breakfast we will leave Hotel Pehoe and arrive in the Lake Pehoe area of the National Park. Here you will have some time with Salto Grande (the largest waterfall in the area) and other breath-taking lookouts of the Cuernos. Just after noon the group will cross Lake Pehoe and arrive at Refugio Paine Grande. From here, we will hike 2 hours to Camp Italiano and take a break. Camp Italiano is at the mouth of the French Valley, so from here we begin going up! The hike to Camp Britanico is another 1.5 hours and as you hike the views get more and more amazing. Finally we will arrive at Camp Britanico to set up camp and enjoy the evening taking pictures of the spectacular landscapes.
