Trekking Tour in Torres del Paine

Torres del Paine National Park is one of South America's premiere destinations. With its granite spires, glacial lakes, and ice-capped peaks, it is no wonder why Torres del Paine is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers. Best-known for the granite massif of curved "horns" and "towers," Torres del Paine boasts over 1 million acres of breathtaking scenery. This trekking in Torres del Paine tour is a fully-guided 8 day tour, including 2 nights in Puerto Natales and 5 nights in the park's refugios.

NOTE: Trekking in Torres del Paine requires good physical fitness. Trekkers should be able to hike 5-7 miles daily on muddy, rugged trails. Everyone should come equipped with a spirit of adventure and willingness to pitch in and help with camp chores. Each night is spent in hotels, cabins, or refuges with bunk beds, so no camping is necessary. Be prepared for rain, mud, snow, and high winds, even during the summer season. Summer temperatures can go as high as 75F and low as 33F, and daylight lasts until 10pm. Trekking season is typically November-April.
