  • Whether you do a day trip, several daytrips, the W, the O, the Q, this is an absolute jewel. I strongly recommend doing the W in 3 days if you are a decent to good hiker in 5, if you are a slow hiker!...  read more »
  • It is a beautiful place, full of wonderful views. The day that we went the day was clear and sunny, so that we could clearly see the horns of the Paine, Salto Grande, Lake Pehoé and what remains of the Grey glacier. Really a monument of nature. I recommend go comfortable, hopefully with slippers, and carry enough snacks because there are no places for lunch, only restaurants in the hotels, which are very expensive.

  • This is the most beautiful mountain range I have seen. The trails are clear and nice to hike on, the views are epic and the types of volcanic rock, glaciers and lakes are amazing. The Torres del Paine highlight is a bit too crowded to really feel you are in the middle of nature however.
  • Selected by some surveys as the 8th wonder of the world, Torres del Paine national park astonishes for the beauty of it's landscapes, a mixture of rock, forest and water. The majestic granite pillars, whom give the park its name, are depicted in here. Silent witnesses of harsh conditions in one of southernmost environments of the planet.

  • Simply the most stunning piece of nature I had experienced so far in my life. If you have time and energy try to head for the O trail to go once around. Stunning valleys and views on the glacier are rewarding. Wouldn't had been the same experience for me. Also less touristy. Try to head for shoulder season to avoid literally masses of people.
  • One of the most incredible experiences in my life. Did the W trek and it is something I will never forget. If there is one thing I wish that I had done differently it would have been to go right up to Chileno from the bus and not stay at the base refugio. The hike up to Chileno is fairly short (1-2 hours) and you would skip the first night where there isn't a lot to do other than sit around. This would make for a long "first day" of hiking where you would go up to the Mirador and then back down across to refugio Quernos but it would allow you to get up to refugio Grey on the back side of the W which offers a lot of fun activities like climbing and kayaking by the glacier. No matter which way you take this trip it will be unforgettable.
  • One of the most beautiful trek I did in south america. Especially alone in winter :)
