Description

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!

So, if you are up for a unforgettable trekking adventure in Chile, please contact me. Let’s discover the beautiful Torres del Paine area on this 9-day trip!
