Emma's Trip:Self-guided W Trek (5D/4N)
Emma's Trip Date:
11th Jan - 15th Jan 2020
What was your most memorable moment?
The highlight of the trip has to be kayaking next to the magnificent Glacier Grey with giant icebergs floating by. I’ve never experienced anything like that before and the 2 hour flew by as we took in the most incredible views. The staff were very professional and made everyone feel at ease.

Tell us about Torres del Paine
Our time in Torres del Paine was incredible and I’d really recommend travelling the 5 day 4 night W Trek as the variety of scenery is just outstanding. The refugios were all very well looked after and the food was great especially considering how remote they are and we always looked forward to a hot shower and a cold beer after each day hiking. The tents and sleeping bags were all great quality and camping made the experience even better! If you have the option to kayak next to Glacier Grey then I’d definitely recommend it, paddling past giant icebergs was a once in a lifetime experience!
Tell us about the trekking
We didn’t have a guide and for the W Trek I wouldn’t say you needed one as the trails are very clearly marked out and you cant really go wrong.
In our itinerary we were advised to spend our fourth night at Dittmar Domes and then hike up to the summit of Torres del Paine on our fifth day and then come back down again to catch the bus out. Dittmar domes was our least favourite of the refugios as there wasn’t any social area or bar to make use of and the dinning area was very cold. Coming from Cuernos to Dittmar Domes you’re also travelling quite a bit downhill to then have to climb steeply up the following morning. Instead I’d definitely advise putting people in Chileno refugio so they continue up from Cuernos but then the following morning they’re in a perfect position to continue to the towers.

Thanks for an incredible once in a lifetime trip!
