Torres del Paine National Park, in South America, is a popular destination for hiking adventures. This is your chance to explore its full circuit under expert guidance, come and join me!

Situated in Chile’s Patagonia region, on the border with Argentina, this park is known for its impressive mountains, glaciers, lakes, rivers and grasslands. “Paine” means dark blue in the Tehuelche language and, indeed, the mountains here acquire that color at dawn. The park, created in 1959, is a paradise for nature lovers: the fauna, flora and landscapes are simply fabulous.

On this 9-day tour we will hike through Torres del Paine full circuit, staying in scenic mountain camps. We will cross amazing spots such as Dickson, Nordenskjöld and Pehoe lakes, Los Perros River and the Grey Glacier, among others. Breathtaking views of Paine Grande, Mount Fortaleza, and other amazing granite towers will really amaze you.

Please keep in mind that for this trip you need a good fitness level, we will hike from 4 to 8 hours per day. You can check the complete itinerary below!

What people are saying about Carlos



Although we weren’t able to make it to the top due to a last minute weather change, we truly enjoyed the expedition and Carlos as a guide! We will be trying again next year 😁



Carlos is a very accomplished rock climber, speaks great English, and is fun to be around. We felt very safe while climbing with him on the Sharks Fin, and learned a lot too.



The whole trip was excellent. Explore share did a great job coordinating. Carlos is an experienced guide and effective teacher. I felt safe with him the whole time we were on the mountain. The weather was terrific and we summited just as expected. I highly recommend Carlos Vasquez for Mont Blanc.



Carlos was a professional and committed guide! We had three great days. He was friendly and guided us savely up to mt blanc. i dont understand the one bad rating carlos got. In my opinion it think it was an bloody amateur which shouldnt have been on mt blanc in the first place. Let me say one thing. If you have no experience on higher mountains and in climbing in general, there is no place for you on mt blanc. train hard, prepare and come with the right expectation!



Hey, So I had a great time on this journey in the Atacama desert and up the the Ojos del Salado. Looking forward for other adventures of this kind :)
