We will pick you up at your hotel very early in the morning to leave the city towards Pudeto and take the catamaran to the Refugio Paine Grande. From there, we will begin the French Valley Trek, following the northern shore of the Pehoé Lake. In our way, we will have the lake with its emerald colored water and views of the Cuernos del Paine (Paine Peaks). After feeling that the track becomes a little bit hard, we will pass by the Skottsberg Lake, from where we will see the Paine Massif, and we will continue to the Italiano Campsite, entrance door to the Francés Valley.

We will continue by the valley, which is the intermediate vertical line of the W Circuit, walking for 1 and half hours to the Francés lookout, from where you can see the Hoja, Espada and Fortaleza mounts. In addition, we will see the Nordenskjöld, Pehoé and Toro lakes. After that, we will resume the trek to go back to the Paine Grande Area, to complete 12.4 miles walking, where we will board the boat that will take us back to Pudeto, so then we continue back to Puerto Natales.
