The Paine Massif dominates the skyline of the Torres del Paine National Park. At the end of the last Ice Age, this land was completely covered by glaciers; they’re now a shadow of their former size, but still undeniably beautiful.
The best time of year to hike in the Torres del Paine is between September and April, when the days are mild. There are some gorgeous, accessible routes suitable for walkers of moderate fitness, but to really see the region at its finest, let us take you on a five or eight day circular trek. This will take you far beyond the reach of day trippers, into the wilderness where only certified guides and their guests may go.
There are clearly marked paths and designated refugios across the park, which grant those who sleep there the ultimate in peace. If you do need and want greater comfort, there are hotels on the edge of the park.
Whilst you’re hiking, you’ll see much of Chile’s native flora and fauna. The guanaco are numerous; so too are the rhea and Chilean huemul.
