About the Classic W Trek

Torres del Paine W Trek

The W trek in the UNESCO-World heritage site Torres del Paine is the iconic trek drawing in thousands of trekkers from around the world. Moreover, this itinerary below will include all the iconic sights such as 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.

Also the French Valley with its hanging glaciers and steep-sided valley walls.

Above all at the end you will see the amazing Glacier Grey coming down from the Southern Ice filed to meet Grey lake and where it breaks off into glaciers.

However, during the entire trek you will be able to see stunning natural wilderness scenery that accompanies every point of the path you will be walking along.

In addition, 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 and extra nights in Puerto Natales.

Moreover we can include Antarctica expeditions from Ushuaia or Punta Arenas and any other part of Chile or Argentina. Just mention it all in  the enquiry form.
