Torres Del Paine

Spectacular granite spires stretch up into the sky. Groaning glaciers melt down into cascading waterfalls and glassy lagoons colored pink with flamingoes. Tremendous snow-capped mountains stand guard over vast grasslands where the once endangered guanaco´s graze peacefully. Torres Del Paine is one of Chile´s, South America´s and indeed the world´s most famous national parks, and for good reason.

On top of its jaw-dropping landscapes and plethora of wildlife, Torres Del Paine is renowned for its easy accessibility and exceptional infrastructure. At 2800m there is no risk of altitude sickness and in the park it is not necessary to know ay Spanish. The stunning and popular 5 day W trek can be completed while every night sleeping in beds, eating hot meals, taking hot showers and enjoying a glass of Chile´s finest wine.

Main attractions

  • See with your own eyes the three 2800m high granite Torres (towers), an icon of Patagonia.
  • Gaze at the soft colors that fall on the Cuernos Del Paine, an alluringly beautiful mountain and one of the essential parts of the W trek.
  • Follow the path to Salto Grande, a breathtakingly picturesque waterfall back dropped by the Cuernos Del Paine.
  • Walk across French Valley and enjoy the views of towering granite walls, hanging glaciers, wind-shaped forests and multicolored lakes.

Getting there

Torres Del Paine is located at the southern tip of Patagonia, a whopping 3100km south of the capital Santiago.
Most visitors opt out of the 3 day bus ride and go instead for the 4 hour flight from Santiago to Punta Arenas. From Punta Arenas, it´s another 4 hour journey over land to Torres Del Paine National Park.

Best time to go

The park has notoriously unpredictable weather and extra days should be accounted for in case of rain or extreme cloud cover. Nevertheless, the warmest and busiest months are from October to March.
