Torres del Paine: full day
At 7 Am we will pick you up at your hotel in El Calafate and begin the journey towards Torres del Paine in Chile. Crossing the patagonian steppe from north to south you will arrive at the border named Cancha Carrera (2.5 hours drive from El Calafate), from where you will start travelling through the beautiful south of Chile and enter the Torres del Paine National Park arriving around 10:30 Am.
By default, programs are organized with low technical walking difficulty and minimal physical demands, and may, if the group is suitable, perform more demanding routes. All walks are held in the company of our trekking guides. On board 4 x 4 overland trucks you will visit strategic points from where you can enjoy hiking and accessing to scenic overlooks of the most important natural attractions of the park.
Around noon, we will provide a picnic in the mountains, protected by the infrastructure of the Overland trucks. Lunchboxes are included and are abundant, so that adventurers are kept fed throughout the day. Once we get to Laguna Amarga, we get off the truck to picnic on the banks of Paine river in a wonderful environment protected from the wind.
Once underway again, and after making stops at various lookout points (Lake of the Swans, Superior Mirador Nordenskjold), we arrive at Salto Grande, from where we hike to the viewpoint of the Horns of Paine on the shores of Lake Nordenskjold. This walk is guided and takes about 2 hours. Then, we continue in the vehicle until a new lookout point in the vicinity of Lake Pehoe, where we will have one of the most famous views of the National Park, with the Horns and the French Valley as background, surrounded by lakes and Nordenskjold Pehoe.
We return to El Calafate at 21:00 approximately.
