Base of the Towers Guided Hike

Hike to the base of the towers at Torres del Paine

This is one of the most iconic treks in Patagonia. The granite towers soar majestically thousands of meters into the air creating the centerpiece of the whole park.

The trek will take you along stunning valleys and over small streams, while there is always the chance of spotting condors floating on the thermals.

Toward the end of the valley the path becomes hard work as you climb up to the look-out, it is best compared to climbing up an even staircase of several hundred steps. This is strenuous but is more than worth the effort as you have all day to complete the trek you can take this part as gently as you need to.
