Start: Day 1 at 7:00 am at your accommodation in Puerto Natales.
End: Day 6 at 6:30 pm at downtown Puerto Natales.

Day 1: Puerto Natales – Base of Torres del Paine – Central Campsite (11 miles, 7 hours). We will pick you up at your accommodations to begin our trip to the Torres del Paine National Park. We will pass by the Portería Laguna Amarga to register and then we will continue to the Welcome Center of Estancia Cerro Paine. After the check-in, we will walk to the Camping Central to leave our big backpacks and begin the hike to the Base of Torres del Paine.

During the trek, we will have views of the Cuernos del Paine, will pass by a forest and climb a moraine, last part before reaching the Base of Torres del Paine lookout. If the weather allows it, we will have a privileged view of the Torres del Paine and a time to rest, before going back to the campsite to spend our first night.

Day 2: Central Campsite – Serón Area – Dickson Campsite (19.8 miles, 10 hours). After breakfast, we will take our box lunch and begin the walking of the day, leaving towards Serón Area. We will see different kind of landscapes while we move forward, with the mountain by one side and the Patagonian steppe by the other.

From Serón Area, we will walk alonside the Paine River and pass by the Azul Lagoon and Cebolla Lagoon. After a long day of walking, we will see the Dickson Lake with its glacier, from where the Paine River is formed. In the campsite, we will have our dinner and be able to rest to recover energies.

Day 3: Dickson Campsite – Los Perros Campsite (6.8 miles, 5 hours). This day, the trek is shorter than the previous days, so we can slow the rhythm a little bit and have more energy for the next day. Anyways, during the trek we will see spectacular landscapes of typical Patagonian forests and plains. In addition, before reaching Los Perros Campsite, we will see the glacier and lagoon, with the same name as the campsite, where if we are lucky, will see some calving. When arriving to the campsite, we will have dinner and rest for the next day.

Day 4: Los Perros Campsite – John Garner Pass – Grey Campsite (13.6 miles, 11 hours). This, along with the Base of Torres del Paine day, probably is the most demanding day of all that form the program. We will start at before dawn, through a forest by a trail up. While we go forward, we will see the first lights that will show us the surrounding mountains. We will continue going up, following the marks of the path until reaching the John Garner Pass, the highest point of the whole trek, at 3,937 ft. of altitude. From this place, and if the weather allows it, you will have the first views of the Grey Glacier and the Southern Patagonian Ice Field.

After a contemplation moment, we will continue the trek going down by the mountainside to enter a forest. We will pass by the Guardería El Paso, until reaching the suspension bridges, from where you can have great views of the Grey Glacier. We will continue to the Grey Campsite, place where we will be able to dinner and rest from the walking we did today.

Day 5: Grey Campsite – Paine Grande Campsite (6.8 miles, 4 hours). Today, less demanding than the day before, we will be able to get up a little bit later to begin the trek going next to the Grey Lake. We will have the last views of the Grey Glacier and Lake, while we go deep into the valley that will take us to the Pehoé Lake. Here, in front of the Paine Massif and with a privileged view of the Cuernos del Paine, is located the Paine Grande Campsite.

*This day you have the possibility to make the Grey Glacier Kayak, but only during the morning, activity that you can book as an optional service.

Day 6: Paine Grande Campsite- French Valley - Puerto Natales (12.4 miles, 8 hours). After our breakfast, we will begin the trek very early, boarding the Pehoé Lake. While we go forward, we will have views of the Nordenskjöld Lake also, before taking the route to the French Valley. Here we will walk until arriving to the lookout with the same name, where we will be able to see another glacier and see the road that we just made to get there. After taking pictures and a little break, we will return to the Paine Grande Campsite to pick up our things and take the catamaran to cross the Pehoé Lake, with privileged views of the Paine Massif and the Cuernos del Paine, if the weather allows it, until reaching Pudeto. Here we will take the transportation to Puerto Natales. Do not forget that we have our farewell dinner, so we can celebrate our achievement and end our activity.
