Torres del Paine in Patagonia is one of the world's most beautiful wilderness areas. An unrivalled landscape of craggy granite peaks that pierce the skyline, impossibly blue lakes, cascading waterfalls and lush valleys carved by ancient glaciers. This unique adventure takes you through Torres del Paine's highlights and lets you enjoy the best of the park's flora and fauna on nature walks, treks and cycling excursions with your local expert guide. Discover the vast pampas and forests, home to herds of Guanaco and hopefully spot Andean Condors circling near the base of the dramatic granite 'Towers of Paine'. After each exhilarating day we return our unique ecocamp with its comfortable dome tents modelled on the traditional Kawesqar hut, perfectly immersed in the park's wilderness.


The trip begins with you being picked up from your hotel or airport in Punta Arenas airport in the morning and driven to EcoCamp Patagonia, located in the world-famous Torres del Paine National Park. Pick-up can also be arranged from your hotel in El Calafate. En route we visit Puerto Natales, a small, lively town on the shores of "Seno de Ultima Esperanza", where we enjoy a hearty local lunch. Next we stop at Cueva de Milodon, a prehistoric cave where the remains of a giant ground sloth were discovered in the 1890’s. The journey is very scenic, with wild birds and wonderful landscapes to be seen. The day ends with our arrival and overnight stay at EcoCamp Patagonia, nestled in the heart of the park with a view of the Torres. During summer the sun sets around 11pm, so upon arrival there's plenty of light to admire the Patagonian steppe with its guanacos and snow-peaked mountain horizon. Please note: This trip can also start in Puerto Natales at no extra cost. Please advise us at the time of booking where you would like to start this trip.

Meals:  D

When we first see the great granite pinnacles of Paine it is worth remembering that the Andes is the youngest chain of mountains in the world. One can imagine the great pressures and movements of the earth that created these spectacular peaks. There are various options available depending on your preferences and desired level of activity. Possible day trips include Western Lakes and Grey Glacier, Laguna Azul or the base of the Towers of Paine. To explore Torres Del Paine, you can choose between nature walks, treks and bike excursions - it all depends on your mood, weather conditions and travel companions preferences! The whole experience of walking in the Torres del Paine National Park will leave you awe-inspired by the wonderful scenery. PLEASE NOTE: All excursions are subject to availability & weather conditions.

Meals:  B,L,D

This morning we sit back, relax and enjoy a scenic drive to your hotel or airport in Punta Arenas (on time to catch the evening flight to Santiago if required). Alternatively, the trip can also end at in El Calafate (bus station). Please don't book flights before 4pm out of Punta Arenas or El Calafate.
