Day walks in Torres del Paine National Park

Torres del Paine

Breathe in the majesty of Patagonia on foot on a choice of rewarding hikes to natural beauty spots.

Torres del Paine National Park is a trekkers' paradise, offering up an endless array of Patagonian scenery that will leave you speechless with wonder and awe. In just a single day, you can delve deep into its wild reaches and gaze upon some of the park's most beautiful and iconic natural landmarks.

One such trek is to the base of the Torres del Paine massif, with its crown of monumental spikes thrusting skyward. This is the centrepiece of the park and the close-up view you can gain on foot more than merits the steep climb.

For a more panoramic perspective, the trek to the French Valley skirts glassy lagoons with the Cuernos del Paine rising up over the horizon to arrive at an extraordinary amphitheatre of vertical peaks. You can also trek to the enormous Grey glacier within a day, passing glassy lagoons, sheltered glacial valleys and wild flower meadows.
