Overview

Torres del Paine National Park in southern Patagonia is the pinnacle of Chile’s natural landscapes, is home to the W-Trek and is fast becoming one of the world’s most popular places for walking holidays. Popular treks include the hike to the base of the iconic towers, the Glacier Grey trek, the trek to Los Cuernos and the Valle Francés (French Valley).

Cuernos del Paine is a granite massif which has been sliced apart into needle-sharp spires by glaciers. Beyond are the vertical triple towers of the iconic Torres del Paine. Wind-battered grasslands lead up to sheltered glacial valleys with flowery meadows; torrential rivers surging with ice are interlaced with glassy lagoons. Wildlife abounds everywhere, from geese to guanaco; condors and puma may be spotted, especially in the low winter season from April to October. Enjoy multi-day hiking, horse riding, kayaking and star-gazing.

Accommodation in Torres del Paine ranges from glamping to first-class lodges.

Where to go when - our guide to Torres del Paine National Park

Torres del paine

The weather in Torres del Paine National Park is wide and varied

Though you can visit the spiralling towers and serrated massifs of Torres del Paine National Park at any time of year, weather conditions vary greatly between the seasons. For the warmest temperatures and the best chances of bright, clear skies, visit between December - February. Bear in mind this is the peak summer season with the most visitors, although in the vast wilderness of Patagonia you are hardly short of space. During the autumn months (March - May) you’ll behold the landscape transform into a haze of deep crimson and bronze foliage, while spring offers the wonders of blooming wildflowers across the meadows and mountainsides. Fewer visitors means you’ll spy more of Patagonia’s graceful wildlife, including guanacos, condors and perhaps even the elusive puma. During winter, temperatures grow cold, rainfall is heavier and snow storms batter the frozen landscapes.
