Itinerary | 7 Days
Arrival Airport: Punta Arenas International Airport (PUQ)
Day 1 Torres Del Paine National Park: Arrive in Punta Arenas, Chile, one of Patagonia’s largest cities. Upon arrival you will be met by your driver and guide and transported to Torres del Paine National Park, where we’ll be exploring throughout the duration of our trip. Along the way, we’ll stop for lunch in Puerto Natales and venture to Cueva del Milodón, a massive prehistoric cave. As we arrive at the entrance of the park, admire the sprawling steppe and glistening, snowcapped horizon. With the sun setting around 11 p.m., the days feel like they go on forever. We’ll have plenty of time to gather at basecamp and debrief over a delicious dinner. Accommodation: EcoCamp
Day 2 Los Cuernos Trail & Nordenskjöld Lake: The next day, we’ll hike the scenic Los Cuernos Trail. Translating to “the Horns,” it was named after the two granite peaks towering over the lush greenery and endless plains. The winding trail leads to the breathtaking Nordenskjöld Lake, which is famous for its electric, frosty turquoise water. After our journey, we’ll settle into Refugio Los Cuernos, a cozy cottage at the end of the trail. Spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing and refueling alongside the picturesque views. Accommodation: Refugio Los Cuernos
Day 3 Valle Frances: Valle Frances, or the French Valley, is a must-see destination in Torres del Paine. The challenging trek travels through the heart of Paine Massif—we’ll journey past staggering mountains and glaciers and over roaring rivers. Marvel at the geological formations and endless natural beauty as we end at the Refugio Paine Grande, sitting beside a stunning, milky lake. We’ll stretch our legs and relax as we recount the day’s wonders and prepare for even more tomorrow! Accommodation: Refugio Paine Grande
Day 4 Grey Glacier: A boat will take us across Grey Lake to the famous Grey Glacier. Float through the magnificent, towering formations and hike across the bright blue ice. After reveling in the mind-blowing views, we’ll return to the cozy Refugio Paine Grande to warm up and rest for the night. Accommodation: Refugio Paine Grande
Day 5 The Three Towers: This will be the most strenuous yet rewarding day of our trek. We’ll head towards Torres del Paine’s famous Three Towers—three giant granite peaks overlooking a turquoise lagoon. We’ll ascend the eastern face by way of Ascencio Valley, hiking through an ever-changing landscape of beech forests, mountain ridges, and boulder fields. After a challenging trek, we’ll feast on a hearty dinner surrounded by the park’s unbelievable beauty. Accommodation: EcoCamp
Day 6 Eastern Lakes: After the challenge of the previous day, we’ll take it a bit easier. A car will take us to Laguna Azul, where we’ll eat with a breathtaking view of the lake and mountainous surroundings. We’ll then head to the Fauna Trail, where we’re likely to encounter a variety of wildlife, such as guanacos, deer, foxes, and even pumas. After an exhilarating day full of nature, we’ll head back to basecamp to share our last meal together and celebrate an unforgettable expedition! Accommodation: EcoCamp
Day 7 Punta Arenas: After an extraordinary, Patagonian adventure, it’s time to say goodbye.
