FAST TRACK W (3 Days)

This is the faster way to visit the three main valleys of the famous W trail in the Torres Del Paine National park. You will hike the lookout point to the famous towers in the Ascencio Valley, the French Valley with the impressive hanging glacier and navigate to the front wall of Glacier Grey, with the companion of great guides and spending the nights away from the busy Refugios in a secluded & confortable riverside camp.

Round trip hike to Las Torres lookout

At 7:30 we pick you up at your lodging in Puerto Natales. Our transfer takes us along an unpaved road heading to Torres Del Paine. When entering the Park, we will have excellent picture taking opportunities of guanacos (llama family) and Grey foxes, driving alongside lagoons frequented by Chilean flamencos and black-necked swans. We will start our first day trekking to the base of the Towers, following the Ascencio River to enter the Ascencio Valley. Our walk will be uphill for one hour before stopping to observe the first glimpses of the valley surrounded by unbelievable beech forests (Nothofagus family), glaciers and waterfalls. We’ll continue through the valley for another hour and a half before ascending a huge terminal moraine to a lookout (900 M), excellent for picture taking. This amazing view will be accompanied by lunch to add to the enjoyment. After being awed by the towers we’ll start our descent, following the same path back to the transfer. We will drive through the main areas of the park all the way to the Serrano River where we will stay in our Chile Nativo camp, enjoying a gourmet dinner Read more

1 night in riverside camp

Round trip hike to French valley

We will take a short transfer to the Pehoe pier and take a catamaran across the Pehoe Lake. From here we commence our out and back trek to the French Valley. We will start going around the southwest side of Paine Grande, the highest summit in the Park, through native forests of fire bush and evergreen beech (Nothofagus Bethuloides), up to the hanging bridge over the French River to observe the first glimpses of the hanging glacier. Then we will ascend (300m) for one hour amidst a surreal Japanese garden landscape, crossing beech forests, to reach a viewpoint, gifting us with magnificent panoramic views, where we enjoy a good lunch. Our way back will be on the same track, spending our second night in the camp Read more

1 night riverside camp

Hike Pingo Valley - Sail Glacier Grey

Early in the morning we start our day by going to the Pingo Valley for a walk to the “Cascada los Salmones” where we’ll stop to take in the view before returning back along the same trail, with a chance to find the elusive Huemul (Andean Deer). We enjoy a picnic lunch at the shore of the Pingo River and in the afternoon we start our adventure to the Glacier Grey by boat. In order to get to the boat we will walk through a mature beech forest where we might observe woodpeckers. We will navigate about one hour through icebergs of different tones of blue up to the Grey glacier, where we will stay for a while in front of the glacier in the hope of seeing icebergs calve. Our return journey offers views of Paine Grande with its impressive ice mushrooms. We will take the private transfer back to Natales on a different road Read more

The trip was all that I had hoped for. Torres del Paine is spectacular and not to be missed. Although I could have done this trip on my own, I wouldn't have learned all that I did, and the boat trip to Grey Glacier wouldn't have been possible. It was a memorable trip! Felipe knew so much about the region and he willingly shared all he knew. Overall, an excellent experience. Torres del Paine is a place not to be missed. Read more

Jenny Block, Germany

Thank you to Chile Nativo for this awesome and very special trip at Torres del Paine! It was organized perfectly - beginning with Johana, who was always very friendly, helpful when ever there were questions arising prior to the trip or even when urgent support was needed just the night before the trip. I was very thankful and appreciated that a lot! During the trip itself, even though some of the hikes were unexpectedly demanding (but still a joy!), we always had enough time so we didn't need to rush through the park, but enjoy the scenery instead when ever we wanted, and take our time to get from A to B. It is certainly a very special place down there at Torres del Paine, and I'm glad we were able to fully enjoy it's beauty! Read more

Just a brilliant 5 days. Amazing scenery, and great people, and a little bit of challenge, which never hurt anyone! The highlight of our time in South America, and we would do it again in a heartbeat. Just awesome. Do it! Chile Nativo gave us loads of details and ideas of things to do before and after. ust a brilliant 5 days. Amazing scenery, and great people, and a little bit of challenge, which never hurt anyone!
