A transfer will take us to the welcome center located in the sector of Estancia Cerro Paine. There we will have dinner and sleep in shelter, preparing for the next day.

Day 2: Trekking Mirador Base Torres (8 - 10 horas / 19,5 kms)

What you will visit:

  • 1 Base Torres viewpoint

This day we will have breakfast very early to start the W route towards the emblematic Base Torres viewpoint. It is one of the most difficult days due to the number of kms that we will walk and the unevenness of the trails.

During the first part, we will trek through the pampas and crossing the Ascencio River, then go up about 3 km until we reach the Paso de los Vientos, from where we will have incredible views of the valley and lakes.

We will continue until we reach the Chilean Refuge, and then enter a forest of lengas to get to La Morrena. This is where the hardest part of the trekking begins. We will walk along a rocky path until we reach the spectacular Mirador Base Torres. We will have lunch and enjoy the scenery before descending towards the Central Sector to dine and sleep in the refuge.

Day 3: Trekking sector Francés (4,5 - 6,5 horas / 13,5 kms)

What you will visit:

  • 1 Sector Los Cuernos
  • 2 Francés Valley

Our day will be more relaxed compared to the previous one, we will walk less hours to move from the Central Sector to the French Sector.

After breakfast, we will walk around 13.5 km bordering the Nordenskjöld lake, the Almirante Nieto hill and the impressive Cuernos del Paine. During the trip we will have beautiful views of the hanging glaciers, lakes and ideal areas to appreciate the abundant flora and fauna of the park.

A tip for those who want to observe animals iis to brings binoculars because, if we are lucky, we can spot the culpeo fox or the birds that inhabit the sector. We will rest and sleep in the shelter of the place.

What you will visit:

  • 1 Francés Valley

This day we will walk to the famous Valle del Francés for the day, returning to the Paine Grande refuge again. After breakfast we will start with a gentle walk through a valley surrounded by trees until we reach the Italian Camp. From there we will start the ascent (about two kilometers) through forests through the valley of the French River, the most difficult part.

We will continue until we reach the French viewpoint, from where we can have one of the most breathtaking images of the circuit: the view towards the valley flanked by the Paine Grande, Cathedral, Leaf, Mask, Sword, Shark Fin and Northern Horn hills. Here we will have lunch, taking advantage of the landscape, and return to the Paine Grande Refuge to rest.
