Patagonia: Chile Adventure
Torres del Paine Park, Patagonia
Running & Hiking
Day 1: Early flight arrival to Punta Arenas, guests can also arrive the night before. We will begin our five hour drive to Torres del Paine National Park. Since no trip to Patagonia would be the same without it, we'll stop along our journey to visit some penguins! Midway through the drive we'll stop again in Puerto Natales, the closest town to Torres del Paine Park. This will be a great time to stretch your legs, grab a snack, and browse for trinkets in the village gift shop. In the late afternoon we arrive at our Final Destination at Refugio Las Torres, nestled inside the Torres del Paine National Park. If you would like to upgrade your stay to the Hotel Las Torres, there will be an option for this on the reservation from after placing your deposit.
Meals: L, D
Day 2: After an early rise and a tasty breakfast, we begin the W Circuit. Today we will venture into the Ascencio Valley on trails that climb upwards to the breathtaking Towers viewpoint. After we depart the towers we will return the same direction to where there is a fork in the trail. Here we will stick to the mountainside and continue towards Los Cuernos. The trail towards Los Cuernos has more downhill and undulating terrain making it much less challenging than the first part to the Towers. We will arrive and stay for the night at Los Cuernos Refugio.

Day 3: Today we complete the middle of the W Circuit as we traverse the trails from Los Cuernos to Paine Grande with a detour out and back into the Valle de Frances.
