  • We couldn't do the W or the O trek as I suffer with arthritis so we just did the trails. It was amazing. I must say the better views are from the other side of the park. We took the internal bus to se...  more »
  • Wonderful! Geology is interesting, with several peaks but the most well known are the Horns (north, main and east). Lots of flora, many vicunas. Best sight: a puma, lying quietly under a rock slope. T...  more »
  • There are not enough words, and pictures don't do justice, as to how beautiful this park is. Do yourself a favor and do the hike to the Mirador Las Torres (the towers). It is extremely hard but worth ...  more »

  • This is the most beautiful place I've ever been. We did the 'O' and had the time of our lives. Your neck gets exhausted from constantly turning to see all the epic views. Such a diversity of terrain and elevations. Every person should make the effort to come here. Truly unforgettable gem of the world.
  • We stayed at the hostel rather rather than the hotel. Walks start straight outside from both. Nothing quite prepares you for the walks. Scenery is stunning whichever way you look. We completed one leg of the famous W trek. The ascent up to the viewpoint to see the Torres is within the capability of most reasonably fit 60-70 year olds and younger. The trail is well marked and virtually clear of pebbles and blocks. The main ascent up the lateral moraine and across the terminal moraine to the viewpoint is stable and clear of major rocks. River crossings are by safe bridges. Allow at least 6hrs to complete the trek from the hostel and back. We were blessed with near perfect weather in February. The weather can change quite quickly. Always carry rain and wind proofs and food. The water from streams further up the trek is drinkable if taken from the Torres side. All treks are well marked. Phone reception is poor. Usual restrictions are in place re: camping, cooking, litter and access.
  • Amazing rugged scenery. Hotel was excellent, comfortable & welcoming. Staff were friendly, helpful & obviously happy in their work. Couldn't fault the excursion guides, all knowledgeable & happy to share their expertise.
  • This is one of the most beautiful place I ever seen in my life. Nature is everywhere and you really feel to be all one with the earth. You can not avoid to stop the car every five second to take a picture. So take your time in order to visit it. Hotel inside the park are very busy and very expensive. So book it in advance and check on several website. You will need to drive off road (which are very nice do not worry) but a 4x4 is not really necessary. Do not miss the visit to the Torres del Paine peak. You will need about 12h (one day) from the early morning to the sunset. You will need to walk around 8km up and 8km down. You have also an option to go there using horses if you like. Do not miss this place!
  • It's a pity so much of the park was destroyed by the fire, this place is probably one of the most beautiful places that I visited. The air is clean, water is clear and the people you meet are just wonderful. Come prepared or the trip may be a little too much to bear.
