Trips | Torres Del Paine The classic 'W' circuit

Torres Del Paine NP is one of the 50 places to visit in your lifetime.

The UNESCO National Park Torres Del Paine is the place to do amazing trekking in Patagonia. This reserve of the world has more than 100 km of trails passing for over 1000 msnm. The mountains are composed of magnificent granite and sedimentary rock formations.

At the same time turquoise colours of lake and glaciers are part of the scenary. Each of the mountains and valleys has it's own microclimate with incredible Nothofagus forest and unique animals. The clouds, the rain, and deep silence followed by wind are the spirit of this area.
