Email this trip
Day 1 We recommend you take the early flight from Santiago to Punta Arenas (4 hours), flying over the Andes and observing incredible views of the Patagonian Ice Fields. Upon your arrival in Punta Arenas, the most southern city on the continent, a private transfer will be waiting to take you to Torres del Paine National Park. (Chile Nativo will offer a pick-up from the airport at 3:20 PM, corresponding with LAN airline, Flight # LA0293, or at 3 PM from your hotel in town). (Flight numbers and times subject to change)
As we leave Punta Arenas we will be able to see the Strait of Magellan and the island Tierra del Fuego. Our 5-hour drive will take us through open pampas and huge ranches (estancias) and chances are we will be able to observe one of the most typical animals in this area, the ñandu (similar to ostrich). We drive through Puerto Natales, located on the Sound of Last Hope, a typical fishing town surrounded by mountains. We continue driving along an unpaved road to the Torres Del Paine National Park. Upon entering the park we will have excellent photographic and birding opportunities as we drive alongside lagoons frequented by Chilean flamencos and black-necked swans. During the next two nights, you can take advantage of the services in the Spa Las Torres (the only full service spa in the park).
(5 hours by private transfer) (D) (Night at Hotel Las Torres)

Day 2 We begin our first full day trek, heading to the base of the Towers lookout point following the Ascencio River before entering the Ascencio Valley. Our walk will be uphill for one hour, stopping to observe the first glimpses of the valley and panoramic views of the Lake Nordenskjold. During the following 2 hours, we’ll walk through unbelievable forests of tall deciduous beech (Nothofagus Pumilio) and waterfalls, and then continue ascending through a huge terminal moraine up to a photographic view point (900m). From here we will be surrounded by three giant granite towers (2850m) and a lagoon with slurry waters resulting from glacial erosion. We will stop here for lunch, taking our time to enjoy this astonishing scenery, before our descent returning along the same path back to our hotel.
(8-10 hours back and forth, 18KM) (B-BL-D) (Night at Hotel Las Torres)

Day3 Today we drive to Lago Grey, inside Torres del Paine National Park. The road passes through a landscape of towering mountains, glaciers, wetlands, steppes and forests. This unique habitat harbors a number of species restricted to southern latitudes. We make a stop at the Salto Grande waterfall to do our first hike to a look out point of the Paine Grande (3050m) and the Nordensjköld Lake. We will then arrive to the administration area to enjoy a lunch in front of the Toro Lake (the biggest in the region). In the afternoon we go up to the Grey Lake 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. Then we take a transfer to our hotel on the shore of the Serrano River with amazing views of the Paine Massif.
(1.5 hour by private transfer, 2 hours hike in the morning, 3 hours boat cruise in the afternoon) (B-BL-D) (Night at Hotel Rio Serrano).

Day 4 We will start a hike on a one-way path with panoramic glimpses of the park. According to the season we should be able to see specific flowers such as orchids, calceolarias, and neneos or maybe even experience the flight of the condor. Once we are at the highest point of the trail we connect to the rarely visited trail heading to Estancia Lazo and its Hosteria Mirador del Payne which are located outside the park. The Estancia Lazo, is a huge cattle center dating from the last century, with magnificent views of the Paine Massive and Laguna Verde. The rooms are very comfortable; the main Estancia's house has been remodeled as a dining room-bar, keeping it cozy and country style. A typical Chilean Asado will be waiting for us at the Estancia-Hosteria where we will spend the night.
(20 minutes by private transfer, 5 hours hike) (B-BL-BBQ) (Night at Estancia-Hosteria Mirador Del Payne).

Day 5 We will take a private transfer to Punta Arenas. (Clients should take the flight at 05:00PM, from LAN airline, flight #LA996, arriving to Santiago at 8:20 PM) (Flight numbers and times subject to change), if you decide to stay the night in Punta Arenas; we will drop you at your hotel.

Chilean Patagonia is famous for its unpredictable weather. Because of the possibility of experiencing all four seasons in one day, it is important to be prepared for anything. The wind is the main factor prevailing during spring and summer, sometimes reaching over 100 kms. /hour. Summer temperatures (December-March) fluctuate between 4°C (39°F) and 15°C (59°F), even sometimes reaching 25°C (77°F). In winter the temperature is typically between -10ºC and 10ºC, but this is a dry cold. There is also a higher probability of stable weather between May and October.
