Perfect for people short on time but wanting all the adventure.
No camping - stay in our cosy Eco-Camp.
Trek to the base of the Towers, French Valley and Glacier Grey.
See all the Paine W's highlights in just 5 days.
Everything was great - the guides were very good (it was particularly good having 2 guides since people do walk at different paces, and we were able to split the group in 2 so some people could go all the way into the French Valley while the rest of us decided to continue), the food (especially at the Eco Camp) was very good, and the refugios were great especially considering how far from civilization they are! The transfers were all very well organized.
The highlight was the hike up to the Torres - loved the challenge and the weather was very good all the way up, with the clouds almost completely clearing when we got to the top! Also the glaciers on Grey Lake.
Good that the Eco Camp is environmentally friendly.

We had the trip of a lifetime. I hear that expression all the time but never really thought it real to say until now. It was fantastic!
Highlight of the holiday was the view of the Three peaks and the lake in perfect weather conditions. It was also the ice hiking which was totally thrilling and lots of fun.
Our guide, Danny, was simply awesome. Great sense of humor, very knowledgeable, good company, calm. We felt lucky to have him with us.
The Refugios and the one night in the tent were very clean and the beds comfortable. The tents were great and sleeping bags and mats were provided - despite no-one being able to sleep due to the noise of the wind (crazy!) Some Refugios were better than others but all were very comfortable with enough amenities
Food was adequate/fine. Don’t think I’ll be having mashed potatoes any time soon but absolutely nothing to complain about. The first Refugio we stayed in was the best (sorry, name eludes me)
The route was good and everything went to plan (bar the boat which no-one could have foreseen) Only emergency internet at that specific Refugio though so possibly a good idea not to try and leave from here as plans difficult to change.
Not sure about the local community benefitting but certainly in P Natales I felt we helped by shopping, eating and drinking there! Surely just having visitors in the area helps the economy and educates people how to behave in a Natural Park?
We chose this place as we wanted to see if it was as beautiful as we had been told. And YES it was!
We chose Andean Trails as the itinerary could be flexible to our time schedule and the amount of time we wanted to spend walking. (Which was great)
Overall an absolutely fantastic trip which will be very difficult to top so if you have any other ideas for next year, please let us know!

Some people dream of sailing through caves of polished marble in a spectacular setting away from it all……. This dream can become a reality in Chile’s remote northern Patagonia where one can find the “Capilla de Marmol / Marble Chapel” which was declared by the Chilean government a Nature Sanctuary in 1994. The nature sanctuary consists of a series of rocky outcrops and islets in Lake General Carrera near the towns of Puerto Tranquilo and Puerto Sanchez. Marble caves These limestone outcrops have been eroded over the last 6,000 years. The waves have sculpted a series of caves …
