Trip

Wildland Trekking - W Trail

Chile  | Torres del Paine  |  4 Nights

Exceptional Experiences

- Trek the famous W Trail 

- Observe hanging glaciers

- Accomodation at responsible Camping/ Refugio camps 

 

Stunning mountains tower over far-reaching stretches of land, in which you’ll explore deep valleys, make your way through thick forests, trek next to blue glaciers and take in some of the world’s most beautiful and colorful lakes. 

 

The famous W-Trail trek will have you navigating between various lodging spots - or Refugios - over four days and waking up every morning to spectacular views all around. At night, share stories with other trekkers, appreciate the tranquil silence and enjoy the incredible views above; stargazing like you’ve never known it before. The Patagonian wilderness is truly an amazing place; it can help you appreciate the connection we have with nature, making everyday life seem a world away.  

 

Some of the unforgettable sights that you’ll see along the way include the mesmerizing Grey Glacier, the French Valley and views of the three granite peaks from which the region gets its name. Wildlife is thriving in the area, so expect to spot more than a few guanacos or deer - if you’re lucky you may even catch a glimpse of a puma.

 

There’s trekking, then there’s trekking in Torres del Paine. Expect a defining experience of the natural world that will stay with you.
