Day 1: Transfer from Puerto Natales to Pehoe Lake– Round trip hike to French Valley
At 7:00 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 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 through the same track, thaking the catamaran again to meet the transfer to Chile Nativo Riverside Domes, spending our first night in the Domes.
(2 hours by transfer, 35 minutes by Catamaran each way, 6-7 hours round-trip hiking, 17 KM, 30 minutes by private transfer) (BL-D) (Night at Chile Nativo Riverside Domes)

Day 2: Hike to Pingo Valley - Glacier Grey Navigation
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 drive to the Serrano River area where we will stay in our Chile Nativo Domes, enjoying a gourmet dinner.
(30 minutes by private transfer, 3 hours hike, 3 hours navigation, 30 minutes by private transfer) (B-BL-D)(Night at Chile Nativo Riverside Domes)

Day 3: Round trip hike to Las Torres lookout point- Transfer back to Puerto Natales
We will start our last day with a Transfer to Las Torres area, where we start the 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 take the private transfer back to Natales.

The windchill factor sometimes makes the ambient temperature drop 6 or 7 degrees. The temperature of the water is normally between 4 and 5 degrees Celsius.

Servicio muy bueno, bien detallado y bien hecho el plan de trekking. Muchas gracias por una experiencia que nunca voy a olvidar!

We loved both of our guides. The accommodations were even more comfortable and 'glamping' than we expected. It was so lovely to have everything planned for us, and tickets to everything purchased ahead of time, and also just the connections the guides have formed there with people who can help us.

The absolute best thing about having booked with Chile Nativo was having Jorge as our guide. He was fantastic in managing a large group with a wide range of ability levels. He made sure everyone had an experience they could enjoy, even when that meant coming up with a new plan at the last minute. He was informative, helpful, and also just fun to be around.

Cecilia and Gabriela were responsive and made the booking process easy.

I was a great trip in a beautiful place.

Jorge was fantastic. Some of the people in our group did not prepare well, were unable to do some of the hiking and then got nasty with Jorge. He handled everything with tact and patience. The man is a professional. He's funny and kind and knowledgable. Top notch guide.

Everything went really smoothly.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful-

A good way to do the W trek if you are limited on time and do not want to camp. A good, reliable company

We had a great trip.

Rodrigo made our trip unforgettable. He is knowledgable, very professional and approachable. He ensured that the trip went smoothly at every stage. We cannot thank him enough for this wonderful exprerience.

Patagonia is an expensive destination and we believe that the fast track W with Chile Nativo was great value for money. Chile Nativo did not dissapoint; we received excellent service at every stage of the booking process and during our trip.

Rod was a very good guide, friendly and easy to talk with. He knows very well the Torres del Paine national park. He adapted the itinerary according to the weather conditions and to everyone's capacities.

The bad weather was actually a chance as we postponed the Tower base outlook to the 2nd day and visited different area of the park as the French valley was very rainy. Itinerary was adapted to the weather conditions with a real add-value for the itinerary. HIKING: usual itinerary would have been a little bit tiring for me (physical), more advice on how fit we should be would be good.

Good service, quick answer, flexible, reliable.
