Discover Torres del Paine 5 Days

This amazing tour will take you on trails reaching the pristine landscapes of Torres del Paine! Amazing glaciers, lakes, forests and the mighty Paine Towers, will provide a constant delight for your trekking-hungry soul! The perfect way to discover in 5 days Torres del Paine!

DAY 1

Patagonia Adventure

The trip starts in Punta Arenas, Puerto Natales or El Calafate (Argentina). We will take you to the world famous Torres del Paine National Park. During southern summer the sun sets around 11 pm, so as you drive in you’ll have plenty of light to admire the Patagonian steppe with its guanaco and snow-peaked mountain horizon. Before arriving though, there are a couple stops. One is at Puerto Natales, a small but lively town on the shores of Seno Ultima Esperanza - “Last Hope Sound”. You are invited to check out the town, leave any luggage you will not need for the trek in our office, and finally enjoy a hearty lunch with delicious local food. The other stop is at Cueva de Milodon, a massive prehistoric cave where the remains of a giant ground sloth were discovered in the 1890’s. The surrounding area is very scenic with plenty of wild birds to be seen. The day ends with a dinner and overnight at the Lodge. Read more

Puerto Natales/ El Calafate
DAY 2

Trek Towers Base

This day you can choose between any of the activities offered at the Lodge. There are easy and active options, and the excursion of each day will depend on the day of the week, according to the schedule of the Lodge. Easy level excursions include Drive & Walk Western Lakes, Navigation Glacier Gery, Easy walk or bike Laguna Azul, Sarmiento Lake and Fauna Trail, Wild Horses tracking. Active Level activities include Drive & Walk Western Lakes, Hike Cerro Ferrier, Trek Towers Base, Navigation on Lake Pehoe and Hike along French Valley, Lazo Weber Hike or Cerro Paine. A great possibility for your first day would be to Trek the Towers Base, the most famous trekking trail in Torres del Paine NP. Here, you will walk from the Camp and start the winding uphill path to Ascencio Valley. Dry mountain spots, beech forests and small rivers are passed along the scenic walk into the valley. It’s not a difficult walk, but energy should nevertheless be saved for the final challenge: the moraine. This mass of boulders is the last guardian before your face to face meeting with the uplifting Torres del Paine. The moraine is sufficiently steep to consider doing it slowly and with an adequate amount of precaution. After a considerable effort, the Towers come into full view, rising majestically in front of you with the glacial lake visible below. This is one of the most breathtaking sights of the world! The famous Torres del Paine (2, 900 m/ 9, 400 ft) consist of three gigantic granite monoliths, the remains of a great cirque sheared away by the forces of glacial ice. There, you can have lunch with this impressive view and then return to the camp along the Ascencio Valley. Read more

Torres del Paine
DAY 3

Navigation to Glacier Grey

Spend another day at this impressive National Park, where you will be able to choose between any of the scheduled activities (Easy or Active Level) for the day of the week. A good choice for your third day could be to take the Navigation to Glacier Grey. If you decide to take this excursion, you will hike from Paine Grande Lodge along the shores of mountain-lined Lake Pehoe to the northern end of glacial Lake Grey. You will enjoy a picnic lunch and then board the boat that sails to the blue face of Glacier Grey. You’ll navigate through the lake and marvel at this calving glacier with its floating pieces of ice. If the weather conditions do not allow taking the navigation through Lake Grey, you’ll instead hike to Glacier. Then, at Pudeto you will board the catamaran to cross Lake Pehoe. From there, you will take a short drive back to the lodge, where you’ll spend the night. Read more

Torres del Paine
DAY 4

Lake Pehoe & French Valley

It’s time to choose between any of the activities offered by the Lodge for you last day in Torres del Paine NP! A great possibility would be to take Navigation on Lake Pehoe and Hike along French Valley. In case you take this tour, after breakfast you will start your day driving towards Pudeto dock, located by the shores of Pehoe Lake. Once there, you wil board the catamaran that will take you to the northern west sector of the Lake from where you will start the challenging trek to Valle Frances (French Valley), taking a steep trail that goes into the very heart of the Paine Massif. How deep you go depends on the groups’ rhythm. An active walk leads to the hanging bridge over the French River, located at the foot of the south east face of the Massif. From this point, you can enjoy a truly wonderful view and then continue up the trail until reaching the upper prospects of the valley. After taking a picnic in this gorgeous scenario, an optional trek to Mirador Britanico is available as well, it’s very intense but the entire group of geological formations of the high valley can be admired here: Hoja (Blade), Máscara (Mask), Espada (Sword), Catedral (Cathedral), Aleta de Tiburón (Shark’s Fin) and the magnificent Fortaleza (Fortress)! You will descend through an undulating terrain of mixed grassland and light forest until reaching the Refugio Paine Grande, located in the peaceful shores of Lake Pehoe. Read more
