DAY 1

Starting the adventure

In the morning, you will be picked up from the airport or your hotel in Punta Arenas and driven to EcoCamp Patagonia, located in the world-famous Torres del Paine National Park (check our weekly transfer menu for schedules to and from EcoCamp).

Along the way, we will make a stop in Puerto Natales, a small and vibrant town on the shores of the Last Hope Sound, where we will enjoy a comforting lunch of local cuisine. The journey is highly scenic, with plenty of wildlife and breathtaking Patagonian landscapes. The day ends with our arrival and stay at EcoCamp Patagonia, nestled in the heart of Torres del Paine National Park with a close-up view of the majestic Towers.

DAY 2

Trekking to Los Cuernos del Paine

We begin our Patagonian adventure with a pleasant hike along the Los Cuernos trail, which will take us towards the beautiful Nordenskjöld Lake. During this warm-up hike, we will have the opportunity to admire the exquisite flora and fauna and take in the views of the slate peaks shaped like horns nestled in the granite of the Paine Massif. The trek ends at Refugio Los Cuernos, a small and cozy mountain refuge located on the shores of Nordenskjöld Lake. Alternatively, the trek can end at Domo el Francés, located between the Cuernos and Italiano campsites, with an incredible view of Nordenskjöld Lake. The afternoon is free for you to enjoy.

Accommodation at Camping Cuernos or Camping El Francés. (subject to availability)

DAY 3

Valle del Frances (French Valley)

After breakfast, we will drive to Pudeto dock where we will board the catamaran to Pehoé. From here, we will begin the challenging trek to Valle Francés, along a steep trail that will lead us to the very heart of the famous French Valley. How far we go will depend on the walking pace of the group. A brisk walk will take us to the hanging bridge over the French River, located at the foot of the southeast face of the massif, where we will be rewarded with fantastic views of the valley. We will continue ascending to the upper section of the valley where we can admire the extensive mass of geological formations of the valley: Hoja, Máscara, Espada, Catedral, Aleta de Tiburón, and the magnificent Fortaleza. After our uphill trek, we will stop for a picnic lunch and a moment of relaxation. The day’s hike will end with a descent through undulating grasslands and bright forests as we are guided to Refugio Paine Grande.

Please note: The excursion to Valle Francés varies throughout the season, depending on the catamaran connection between Pudeto and Refugio Paine Grande.

Between October 1st and April 30th, the navigation only operates once a day, so the trek itinerary will depend on the walking pace of the passengers. (Between November 1st and March 31st, the excursion operates regularly).

DAY 4

Grey Glacier

Today we will hike from Refugio Paine Grande along the shores of Lake Pehoé to the north side of Lake Grey. We will enjoy a picnic lunch before boarding the boat that will sail to the enormous and crystal-clear facade of Grey Glacier. From the southern end of Lake Grey, we will transfer to EcoCamp. Due to the unpredictable weather of the region, navigation across the lake may occasionally be canceled, also if the minimum of 15 passengers is not reached. If this is the case, we will alternatively hike to the viewpoint to enjoy the beautiful panoramic views of Grey Glacier. After this, it’s time to return walking to Refugio Paine Grande and take the catamaran to the dock, where we will be picked up and driven to EcoCamp.

DAY 5

Trekk to Base de las Torres

The aim of our fifth day is to complete the most famous trail in Torres del Paine National Park! Today, we will hike from EcoCamp to Hostería Las Torres before ascending the Ascencio Valley on the east face of the Towers. Mountain ranges, lenga forests, and small rivers line the picturesque hike into the valley. Our main challenge is the steep moraine, a massive mass of rocks leading to the iconic base of the Towers, the three giant granite monoliths that remain as part of a large glacial cirque torn apart by glacial ice. After a strenuous ascent, the Towers will eventually come into full view, rising majestically before us with the glacial lake at their feet. Is there a better place in the world to have lunch? After feasting our eyes, we will hike back along the same trail through the Ascencio Valley and return to EcoCamp for a well-deserved dinner.

DAY 6

Eastern Lakes

The sixth day will consist of a less demanding trail to counteract the exhausting efforts of the previous day. After breakfast, we will take a leisurely car ride to Laguna Azul, home to many wild guanacos and ñandús. We will occasionally pause to admire the views of the Patagonian steppe and the Towers from a different perspective. Once at Laguna Azul, we will hike to a viewpoint where we will have a beautiful view of the lagoon and the granite towers. After lunch, we will drive to the northern shore of Lake Sarmiento where the Fauna Trail begins. As we walk northward, we may spot an impressive variety of Patagonian wildlife on the vast plains and perhaps even a puma footprint! We will pass by the beautiful Laguna Goic and, after approximately 5 km of relaxed hiking, we will reach the Laguna Amarga ranger station where we will be picked up and taken back to EcoCamp to celebrate our farewell dinner.
