Tell us about Patagonia Camp
The service exceeded expectations. The yurts were nice but I did not sleep that well due to high winds two nights and a nearly full moon during our stay. I am not a sound sleeper so three nights there was all I would have wanted, despite such great staff. One excursion was good and the other was great. Packing our own lunches worked very well. There were also a few small quirks with booking excursions we were not expecting but Barbara was great.
Tell us about Hotel Las Torres
Every facet of the stay was great. The food and bar were phenomenal. This was the best sleep I have had in years - a nice bed and a 12 mile hike will do that! We ended up with two great excursions and our guide was a temporary employee, which shows that the hotel did not cut corners to make sure they were able to meet the needs of its guests. We enjoyed walking the grounds and checking out the brewery and gardens. This stay was exceeded our expectations.
Tell us about Torres del Paine
Truly a spectacular landscape. The highly variable weather made me appreciate it even more.
Tell us about the Excursions
Our excursions - base of towers, cerro Paine, French Valley, and Alto Torro - were exceptional, though please reference comment above regarding the difficulty of seeing the French Valley when you cannot arrive before 11am.
