Torres del Paine

Torres del Paine National Park is the rugged, windswept jewel of Chile, set magnificently at the eastern spur of the Andes and on the southernmost tip of the Patagonia Ice Cap.

Most famously, the three impossibly steep pinnacles, after which this park is named, stand defiantly beneath the jagged Los Cuernos del Paine (2,600m) and the tallest tower in the massif, Paine Grande (3,050m).

Declared a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve in 1978, Torres del Paine National Park shelters a fragile ecosystem of fauna including guanacos, rheas, foxes, nandus, condors and flamingos. Electric blue icebergs float on vividly coloured lakes of turquoise and aquamarine, among them Lago Grey and Lago Paine, while golden beech forests cling to the base of colossal granite pinnacles rising up to pierce the sky. With over 250 kilometres of well-marked trails, the Park offers a range of excursions by boat, car, or on horse-back and also hikes to suit different abilities.

From one day excursions to seven day trekking adventures, Torres del Paine and its captivating scenery and ultimate remoteness, is one of the best trekking locations in the world. Our specialist James has trekked extensively through Torres del Paine National Park on several occasions, camping in the wilderness, also enjoying the comforts of the hotels in the area!

The Torres del Paine is a wildlife rich region of Chile. Check out the video below to see just how close you can come to this wildlife and witness the elusive Puma.
