Torres del Paine W Trek Itinerary

Self Guided, 6 Nights Start and End at El Calafate

Introduction

This is the classic W Trek itinerary starting and ending at El Calafate. However, we can change the ending to be Puerto Natales. The plan will give you a night in El Calafate before starting the trek, transport you to the W Trek trail head, include all accommodation during the 4 nights of the trek, all meals plus transport back to El Calafate and your final night in a hotel in El Calafate.

We can also add in a visit to the famous, and impressive Perito Moreno Glacier, or add on a few nights at El Chalten.

What Will You See?

During this classic W Trek, on the eastern arm of the trail, you will be able to hike up through the Asencio Valley to the iconic Torres Base, from where you will see the dramatic, needle-like, vertical towers of Torres del Paine.

I the middle sector, you will be able to enter into the beautiful French Valley, where there are stunning hanging glaciers, snow-covered peaks, waterfalls and woods.

Finally,  you will also be able to walk along the path beside Grey Lake and get to see from a view point the amazing sight of the Grey Glacier coming down from the Southern Ice Shelf into Grey lake, where it breaks into icebergs that float in the lake.

In addition to the dramatic and beautiful sights, you will hopefully also see various types of flora and fauna, different lakes and impressive, mountainous scenery in almost every direction.

Further below, on this page, is an actual, example itinerary to view.
