Enjoy an unforgettable 6-to-7 day trip with local IFMGA aspirant mountain guide and climb the North Tower of Paine! A jewel of the Chilean Patagonia.

Not specified


7 Days

Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, Oct, Nov, Dec




In Torres del Paine National Park we will find endless summits and vertical granite walls that rise between the glaciers. The North Tower of Paine is the easiest of the three main towers that make up the landscape.

With a walking approximation of 2 or 3 days, we will get to the base to begin the climb. Around 500 meters separates us from the summit with routes of medium-advanced difficulty. The descent will be done by rappel on the same route.

The North Tower of Paine climb implies a very strong fitness condition and some prior alpine climbing experience. Keep in mind that, depending on the season, the South of Chile can present cold winds and rough weather conditions. Be prepared for a really challenging adventure!

About the guide

UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide from Chile

Mountain guide and instructor from the Chilean Andinism Federation (FEACH) and certified Wilderness First Responder.

I’ve opened several climbing routes in Chile, and was one of the first and very few Chileans to summit Cerro Torre, Fitz Roy, Paine Grande and Torres del Paine.

I climbed almost all the technical mountain in Cajón del Maipo, in Central Chile, and did some of the most important routes in Yosemite, Indian Creek and Patagonia.

And regarding ski mountaineering, I skied down Mount Illimani and Huayna Potosí in Bolivia, and Cerro Castillo, Morado Norte and Sur in Chile.

Nicolas is an excellent guide, with incredible mountaineering knowledge and technique (which was particularly worthwhile during our expedition when we encountered harsh winter conditions). His english is also very good. In short, I recommend this mountain guide.

Nico was an incredible guide. I wanted to ski the canaletas in Cerro Arenas and he was excited to take me there. He knows Cajon del Maipo like the back of his hand. Afterall, this is his backyard. He has spent decades skiing, climbing and exploring this region and his knowledge of the terrain and weather is very impressive. His english is good as well, and he is a really nice guy on top of all that. 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for a great ski mountaineering adventure.

My trip with Nicolas was perfect. He catered to my climbing preference and the hot springs at the end of day was exactly what we needed. I would definitely do it again! Thanks Nico for my first experience in climbing in Chile!

The guide did not know the route. We spent a lot of time trying to find the route. The climbing itself was good.

The trip was awesome. Our guide Nicolas was extremely knowledgeable about the terrain and very helpful. He is an expert guide. The sights were beautiful. The office quickly responded to our request and questions and provided excellent information.

I was really disappointed with Casa de Guias. It was not a terrible experience because Casa de Guias had found a wonderful guide and assistant although they did not know them (allmountain guide). As to Explore -Share I don´t intent to buy anything. I will write a full description of what happened by e-mail.
