Torres del Paine Trail - Chile

Please note that all costs for this expedition quoted in USD$

This 9 day trek along the Torres del Paine Trail, is one of the world renowned trekking routes in Patagonia, Chile’s most famous national park. The trail is located in the south of Patagonia, approximately 2500kms from Santiago and is an internationally acclaimed trekking destination providing our trekkers with panoramic scenery, exotic wildlife and diverse ecosystems.

Torres del Paine is recognised as one of the most breathtakingly unspoiled places on earth, being declared a World Heritage site in 1978. The spectacular Pine Massif, with peaks Cuernos (Paine Horns) and Grande, dominates the panoramic landscape of the park. We will trek through numerous ecosystems including, carving glaciers, snow-capped mountains, cascading rivers and waterfalls, lush meadows, mirror like turquoise lakes, Magellenic forests and arid Pampas. Expect to see birds like the Andean Condor, American ostrich, Cara Cara’s and Pink Flamingos. Mammals such as Guanaco’s (like Lamas) Gray and Culpeo Foxes and possibly Pumas.

This is a fairly strenuous hike; trekkers must be in good physical condition and be fit enough to hike for full days on varied terrain. Terrain can be rocky, steep and/or boggy and the section on the Pass can be made more challenging if the weather is bad. The trip is camping for the most part and you should be comfortable with travelling in remote areas.

Note the trip is fully supported by pack horses and/or porters so you will only need to carry a day pack. Your experienced English speaking wilderness guide will be assisted by a cook who will take care of the practical arrangements while on the hike. Pam and Pauline are experienced, trained mountaineers who will provide the safest and most beneficial experience leaving you free to enjoy the jaw dropping scenery and pristine wilderness scenery.

For those of you out there that are not trekkers we do have a non walking Safari available. This is a luxury package and ideal for those partners who wish to experience Torres del Paine by coach rather than walk with their husbands/partners the full track. Please enquire direct with Pam regards this.

The trek commences and finishes in Punta Arenas. We can only take bookings for up to 10 trekkers. Taking bookings now for 2014. 2014 price subject to change.
