Patagonia Tourism for Adventure Seekers and Sight-Seers
Of the more than 15 available tours, we would like to recommend two, which are simply amazing:
Valley of the W: a 5-day tour you can take with your family or on your own, where you will be delighted by the majestic Paine Massif, one of the most impressive and requested locations of all Patagonia. In an 8-hour trip (round trip), you will be taken by van to the beginning of the trails of Base Torres to start an amazing adventure. You will be able to cross the beautiful Lake Pehoe on a catamaran and hike through the French Valley; a valley surrounded by hanging glaciers and a unique amphitheater made of granite rock walls. Finally, 4 hours of hiking will take you to the main viewpoint of the Gray Glacier; one of the most impressive glaciers from the Southern Ice Fields. To bid farewell to the national park, we will celebrate the end of this adventure by giving you a delicious Pisco Sour with millenary ice while sailing aboard a catamaran in front of the glacier walls.
At the end of each day, you will sleep in the comfort of a beautiful lodge and a traditional park shelter, fully equipped.
It is also worth noting that we have hiking alternatives depending on the weather and physical conditions of our visitors.
Paine Circuit Full Experience: If you are considering exploring the entire park, this fantastic Patagonia Tour is ideal for you. In 12 days you will be able to go all over the Paine Circuit. Among the activities considered there is the spectacular 8-hour trekking to Base Torres, crossing Lenga tree forests, where you can often see Southern Parrots, Caiquenes, guanacos, and foxes, as well as the spectacular Paine Massif.

On the next day, you will sail like never before, aboard a Zodiac, to then start an Ice Hike for 3 hours on the amazing Gray Glacier.
