The O circuit trek in the UNESCO-World heritage site Torres del Paine is the iconic trek drawing in thousands of trekkers (and we do not mean Star Trek here) from around the world. The itinerary below will include the trek to the base of the towers, the area beside the lagoon at the feet of the three needle-carved, vertically-sided towers of granite rock; the French Valley with its hanging glaciers and steep-sided valley walls, and the amazing Glacier Grey coming down from the Southern Ice filed to meet Grey lake and where it breaks off into glaciers. And, of course, the numbingly stunning natural wilderness scenery that accompanies every point of the path you will be walking along. Of course we can add to this itinerary any of the other excursions and activities in the area such as penguins and whales from Punta Arenas, trekking in El Chalten, extra nights in Puerto Natales, Patagonia or Antarctica cruises from Ushuaia or Punta Arenas and any other part of Chile or Argentina. Just mention it all in the enquiry form.
