The Basics

Rock climbers and ice hikers come to Torres del Paine National Park for adventure, while others enjoy the networks of trails that wind past herds of guanaco and through this Patagonia wilderness, occupying 1,100 square miles (1,800 square kilometers) of open space. The easiest and safest way to access the wilderness—home to Grey Glacier, Milodon Cave, and Lake Pehoe—is on a guided tour, which quickly takes travelers to the park’s most spectacular viewpoints, even if arriving from places further afield such as Puerto Natales. Guided tours are especially valuable for those coming from Argentina, as traveling with a guide takes the stress out of border crossing. Tours emphasize a range of outdoor activities, including sightseeing, hiking, rock climbing, and kayaking.

Once in a lifetime
Torres del Paine National Park was beautiful and truly a once in a lifetime experience. Matias (Tour Guide) and Mauro (Driver) made a great team with getting everyone through the border crossings and back very efficiently. They were very kind, thoughtful, welcoming, funny and informative. You could tell that they love what they do which added to our wonderful Patagonia experience! I didn't think the tour was too long either. Thanks soo much!! :)

Full-Day Tour to the Torres del Paine National Park
Im giving this 4 stars because the bus trip was too long for me. The tour operator was 5 star. It was very windy the day we were there. The trail we were supposed to hike was closed for safety reasons. The guide made some phone calls and found another trail for us to hike.

Hiking Base Las Torres at Torres del Paine National Park
It took us 8 hrs. Guide was excellent and encouraging. It is harder than I expected. Scenery and trip is worth it but do not recommend for persons with heart or lung or knee problems.

Full day Torres del Paine from Punta Arenas ,Regular tours
This is a very good trip worth every penny. The itinerary covers over 800 km. The sights are spectacular. Make sure you bring a lot of snacks because there is no stop fo lunch (in the morning there is a stop for a quick breakfast).

Full-Day Torres del Paine Mountains Advanced Hike
I was a rookie at trekking this far and vertical and did not do an conditioning to get ready so it was really tough for me. It was an amazing day and the view from the base is amazing! I would go again, but be prepared for a LOT of walking.

Full-Day Torres del Paine Mountains Advanced Hike
We had a fantastic trek to the base of Los Torres. Blue Patagonia picked us up from our hotel in the morning and had day packs ready, all we needed was appropriate clothes and shoes. Natalia was a great guide, and knew so much about the area. It's a tough hike, but completely worth it!

5-Day Torres del Paine W Trek
The Torres del Paine parque is unbelievable! We had a good time. Although there are some things I like to be changed. We hiked for 4 days, better to do 5. Also Refugio Grey should have a night to actually get time to see everything. So instead of 4 nights we should have stayed 5 nights. Second the food in the Refugios for the amount of money you pay per person isn’t great. It is also not very healthy. Every day white bread, no variety in food and a lack of fruit and vegetables. Two refugios didn’t offer free towels, which again for the cost of the trip is absurd. Refugio grande didn’t even offer free coffee. In other words, for $1800.00 and only 4 days of hiking and 4 nights, the service didn’t add up. I know full well where we are but different options might have been a better way to offer the trip. If I had known everything before, I would have wanted 5 nights and included the Refugio Grey. The transportation was perfect arranged. And overall the people were nice and I specially want to mention Refugio Chileno! Amazing vibe, nice people and best service.

Hiking Base Las Torres at Torres del Paine National Park
Thanks to Andres and Gabriel who were very good guides, they were encouraging people to do their best to have the final view at the top. The hiking or trekking was a bit hard at the end. but I was able to come back with 2 hours advanced fron the group as I wanted to walk a bit faster on the return. It was fabulous, we got a very nice weather and again Gabriel and Andres gave good advices for the walk and good descriptions too. This tour is for people who love to hike and connect with nature. I got to come back from Puerto Natales to Punta Arenas after I came back at 9:30pm to my hotel. such a wonderful day.

An excellent tour of Torres Del Paine national park
Prashant H, Jan 2020
Full day Torres del Paine from Punta Arenas ,Regular tours
Max and his buddy driver (sorry, forgot the name) were extremely good in making sure that all the important places/spots in the park are covered. The tour started early at 5:15am with hotel pickup and ended at around 9:20pm with hotel drop off. They covered a distance of about 800+ kilometers during this period which is impressive. There were snack and lunch breaks throughout the day. I also encourage other tour participants to write reviews on this team to make others aware of their wonderful job.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Make reservations for the lodges and dormitories (called refugios) inside the park well in advance, as they fill up quickly; this applies to campsites, as well.

  • The wind can greatly increase the chill, so dress in warm layers.

  • Many tours offer next-day pickup for those who want to spend a night camping in the park.

  • Wear appropriate clothes and shoes for walking on rocky, uneven surfaces.

How to Get There

Torres del Paine National Park is located about five hours north of the town of Punta Arenas, the closest major city. Most visitors arrive at the Carlos Ibáñez Airport, about 12 miles (20 kilometers) north of town, with direct flights from most major Chilean cities. There are also ferries, geared to tourists, that make the trip. By bus, it's about three hours on a gravel road from Punta Arenas to Puerto Natales, the closest major town to the park, set 70 miles (112 kilometers) away, with a range of hotels and other services. While Punta Arenas is worth exploring, you can catch a bus right from the airport to Puerto Natales. Buses run from there to, and throughout, the park.

Wildlife Spotting

Guanacos are as much a part of the Patagonian landscape as mountains and lakes. These small, wild animals are the ancestors of modern llamas.
