Torres Del Paine Trek

Torres Del Paine Trek

Altitude 1,200m Grade: T4

Circular trek around the Torres del Paine Massif, into the heart of Patagonia with breathtaking glacial scenery.

The Torres Del Paine Trek is a 100 km circuit that takes you around and up into the heart of stunning mountain scenery. The pink granite towers, coated with crystalline snow and ice, protrude skywards from the core of the massif, which itself is almost completely encircled by mighty lakes and gleaming glaciers. Here you are surrounded by glaciated mountains but with the added bonus that altitude is not a factor as the highest point of the trek is the John Garner Pass at just 1300m. Twice on the trek we leave the ‘ring road’ and head inwards to the centre of the circle, up the Valle Frances and then the Rio Ascencio for amazing close up views of the teeth-like, granite towers such as the Hoja (Blade) and the Espada (Sword).

The start and finish is from the renowned Ecocamp’s Camp Torres where you may choose to upgrade to stay in one of the award winning ‘domes’. Fixed camps and refuges provide accommodation for trekkers along the way, and a team of porters will accompany you, enabling you to enjoy the walking without too much weight to carry. This is a ‘must’ for any serious walker – you cannot hang up your boots until you have done this one!

Fantastic trip. The Torres del Paine circuit is a superb trek with stunning scenery. As predicted we experienced all four seasons but after a wet and windy first day the weather got better and was then excellent. The Chilean guides were knowledgeable, friendly and helpful and the organisation could not be faulted. A vital bridge at the Italian Camp had collapsed so plans had to be changed but this was done efficiently with a minimum of fuss.

We also did the Tierra del Fuego extension with four nights in Ushuaia. The activities included canoeing, trekking and a boat trip. Penguins, condors, beaver and sea lions – what more could you want….?

Thank you to Adventure Peaks for all your help with the booking and answering our many questions.

We wanted to just write to you personally to let you know that all your organisation was brilliant and everything worked out really well. Whenever we arrived anywhere we were met by someone holding a "Sussex x 2" card!

The itinerary worked very well. We were very pleased that on the day before we left we did the French Valley walk which was stunning.

At Tierra del Fuego the trips were all planned meticulously with real attention to detail - hot soup suddenly appearing when it was cold and BBQ and red wine for lunch after hiking in the national park. We were made to feel thoroughly spoilt. We even canoed on the Beagle Channel after one of the treks.

Thank you again for organising such an amazing adventure for us, we had an amazing time.

Hi Mike, Just a quick note to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the Torres del Paine Circuit trek - a wonderful experience. I would also like to thank you for calming me down when I panicked about missing the connecting flight! Everything worked out well in the end and I had the bonus of a day exploring Madrid. It was a fantastic holiday that totally lived up to my expectations.
