Patagonia is the outdoor gear company. For many, it’s that famous shot of the Base of the Towers that the location evokes. Torres del Paine National Park is where you were thinking about in Patagonia.
This 10 day Patagonia itinerary focuses on Chile and making sure you see as much as you can in the legendary Torres del Paine.
DAY 1: HIKE ESTANCIA LAZO TO WEBER BRIDGE
Etancias are essentially privately owned ranches that you’ll find all over this region of Chile, typically used for raising livestock such as sheep or cattle.
DAY 2: HORSEBACK RIDING TO TYNDALL GLACIER
When it comes to horseback riding, they are designed for both novices and experienced riders. Your baqueano will provide a lesson including the western style of riding with a loose rein in one hand.
The first section is a traverse is relatively flat and will get you nice and warmed up. Along the way, you’ll have a great view of Lake Pehoe, Lake Skottsberg, and Cerro Paine Grande.
DAY 3: HIKE FRENCH VALLEY
DAY 4: KAYAK AMONGST ICEBERGS IN GREY LAKE
You’ll get to see a part of the W Trek from a completely different vantage point. Instead of hiking out to a viewpoint of the Grey Glacier, you’ll be paddling with the icebergs from that same glacier.
DAY 5: HIKE THE BASE OF THE TOWERS
You can see the deterioration of the trail with a deep ditch of mud, boulders, and streams of water. Your knees will feel the burn after this hour of climbing.
DAY 6: PUMA TRACKING
Our tracker noticed a herd of guanacos and echoing throughout the plains, a warning if you will. By locating the solo sentinel guarding the group and making the call, it was clear a puma was near.
