Itinerary

Day 1Puerto Natales
Arrive at any time. If arriving into Punta Arenas in Chile or El Calafate in Argentina we recommend arriving prior to 14:00 to allow enough time to transfer to Puerto Natales for the welcome meeting.
Day 2Puerto Natales/Torres del Paine
Embark on a 9-day excursion within Torres del Paine NP, hiking the full Torres del Paine circuit known as the O circuit. Start the 130km (80.7 mi) route by trekking to the base of Las Torres to see the dramatic three towers and turquoise lagoon below. Transfer by van to Torres del Paine NP. This two-hour journey through ranch country includes a stop in Cerro Castillo, the principal site of wool and meat exportation to Europe during the 1960s. Trek to the base of the Torres themselves, a spectacular hike to view the three pink granite towers that make the park famous. Torre (Tower) Sur rises 2900m (9512 ft) above sea level, Torre Central is 2850m (9348 ft) high and Torre Norte measures 2600m (8528 ft). The Cuernos (Horns) del Paine, massive blocks of various rock layers visible from great distances, are as spectacular as the towers themselves. Spend the next few days hiking and camping in this spectacular park, visiting the Towers, Grey Glacier and French Valley, before making your way back to Puerto Natales.
Day 3Torres del Paine/Camp Séron
HIke on relatively flat terrain through towering mountains following the river to Camp Séron. Enjoy the surrounding grassy plains and keep an eye out for wildlife before arriving at camp in the mid afternoon. In the morning, meet our porters, load up the gear and head out across ancient glacial moraines around the Paine Massif toward Camp Séron. The trail takes us through Lenga forests where we often see Austral parakeets, several species of geese, and the occasional guanaco and fox.
