Multi-day hike across the Best Spots in Torres del Paine!


This is a multi-day trek will take you through all the must-see places in the park (including the "W" circuit). Hike through native forest, rivers, rocky trails, glaciers, lakes and stunning lookouts! See the famous granite towers, Grey Lake, the French Valley and much more!
We will walk between 10 and 20 km (6-12 miles) per day, 1240mts highest point (3940ft), arriving every day to a new camping (tents), eating good and healthy food cooked by me and sharing special moments and conversation all the way!
This is not a beginners 8 days trek, is more like a medium-high kind of hike. Of course, when you think of a Patagonian trek, weather should not be a problem, just be prepared for sunny days, wind, maybe rain, cold, you know. . . this is PATAGONIA!
Porters will help us carry our equipment and food.
Looking for a great adventure in Chilean Patagonia? Come with me to feel alive walking one of the most famous treks in the world!
