On this 5 day Patagonia holiday you will go W Trekking in Torres del Paine. The W trekking trail explores the main tourist attractions of Torres del Paine.

Immerse yourself in this vast national park; a backpack and comfortable shoes are all you require for a trekking adventure, the best possible way to explore this UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.

The journey is named by the union of the three large areas which the trail runs through: the Ascencio Valley, the Francés Valley and the Grey Glacier Valley.

It is definitely one of the favorite treks for nature lovers. Dare living this adventure which lasts between 4 and 7 days, walking through lenga forests, amazing lookouts and steep slopes. Get ready to push yourself to the limit!

Take full advantage of the 17 hours of daylight in summer and don’t miss out on sunrise, when the horns of the Torres del Paine massif glow purple and red.

You’ll enjoy terrific wildlife-watching in Torres del Paine. See majestic condors wheeling in the pristine skies overhead. Look out for foxes, huemul or Andean deer and guanacos along the way, and if you lie in wait patiently, you might be lucky enough to spot the reclusive puma.

There are amazing views throughout this trek and the further you trek into the
valley the better they become! For this day we will have two hiking options as
well: A consists in getting to further end of the trail, to the British Camp, this is
all the way to the end of this natural congregation of mountains. If we reach this
point, we will have completed 24km and 7-8 hours hiking. Plan B consists on
reaching to the French Valley Main Lookout, from this point you can appreciate
the whole natural amphitheater created by glaciers millions of years ago, it is
absolutely breathtaking. B you will have hiked for 5-6 hours and completed
16km. The options will depend on fitness level, timing and weather conditions.
On the return journey you will notice the extraordinary turquoise colour of Lake
Pehoe. Cross Lake Pehoe by catamaran, transfer to Serrano river. Dinner and
night at refugio Nash-Serrano.

Day 4 Grey Valley – Puerto Ntales

enchanting Lake Grey (3-4 hours 11 KM) with magnificent views of Glacier Grey
and floating icebergs. Visit to the glacier lookout point and to the lakeshore for
up-close views of vibrant-blue icebergs (Paine is a Tehuelche Indian word for
"blue"). During the afternoon we will navigate aboard of the Grey III catamaran.
Two hours navigation in this magic lake surrounded by ice bergs where the boat
does a circuit right up to the front of the glacier whilst you stand on deck sipping
your pisco sour served with glacial ice! Transfer from Grey lake to Puerto
