Within the famously rugged landscape of the Southern Patagonian Andes lies one of the world’s most iconic national parks: Torres del Paine. The park’s vast wilderness is filled with spectacularly azure alpine lakes set amongst cascading glaciers, and soaring monolithic pinnacles standing above the undulating, golden hills of the Chilean steppe. Trekking through this pristine wilderness offers hikers unparalleled vistas of the granitic spires of Las Torres, the massive, ever-shifting Grey Glacier, and the dynamic hanging glaciers of French Valley. With luck, you will have the opportunity to witness these hanging glaciers calve, sending snow and ice crashing down the mountainside of the French Valley. These striking features are all situated along the established trails of the classic “W” route. SYMG’s Classic Torres del Paine unique itinerary provides the perfect balance of wilderness and luxury, traveling each day along the most scenic sections of the “W” route and sleeping each night at a comfortable lodge or refugio with hot showers and a warm beds. It is a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience.
