Día 1

Transfer from Punta Arenas airport to Hosteria Pioneros

  • 5 Hours Private Transfer
  • Night at Hosteria Pioneros (D)

To travel without hassle, take the early flight from Santiago to Punta Arenas (4 hours).

Relax and enjoy the journey over the Andes and views of the intricate patterns of the Patagonian Ice Fields.

At Punta Arenas airport your private transfer will be waiting to take you to Torres del Paine via Puerto Natales.

Leaving Punta Arenas we’ll see the Strait of Magellan and the island of Tierra del Fuego.

Our 5-hour drive weaves through open pampas and huge estancias (ranches) with the chance of seeing the ñandus (similar to ostriches) that call these landscapes home.

Passing through the fishing town of Puerto Natales, located on the Sound of Last Hope and surrounded by mountains, we’ll take an unsealed road to Cerro Castillo, a small village at the head of the Torres Del Paine commune.

Día 2

One Way Ride to Tercera Barranca

  • 40 Minute Private Transfer
  • 7 Hour Slow Riding, Trotting and Cantering, 34 km / 21.1 mi
  • Night at Tercera Barranca (B-BL-D)

After a hearty breakfast, we set off by private transfer to Estancia Lazo, a 13,000 hectare (32,123 acres) cattle ranch founded over a century ago and still operating today beneath striking views of the Paine Massif on the shores of Laguna Verde. Here we meet our horses that will be waiting to begin the ride to Tercera Barranca.

We will enjoy a 7-hour slow ride with trotting and cantering to a beautiful and quiet estancia where we will rest for the evening.

Along the way, we will have views of the Towers in the distance and opportunities to see the diverse Patagonia landscapes and local fauna including guanacos and ñandus.

Día 3

Round trip ride to Salto Las Chinas Waterfall

  • 7-8 Hours Walking, Trotting and Galloping, 28 km / 17.4 mi
  • Night at Estancia Tercera Barranca (B-BL-BBQ)

Our destination today is the Salto Las Chinas waterfall on the east side of Torres del Paine National Park, a route taken more than a century ago by Lady Florence Dixie – and whose 1880 account of traveling Patagonia is still iconic.

We’ll ride across pampas and plateaus and likely see condors matching our speed as they soar the skies above us.

We’ll stop for lunch at the waterfall before making our way back to the ranch via the same trail.

Our evening will be spent beside the fire, with Pisco sours and a Patagonian lamb barbecue (BBQ confirmed with a min. of 8 people).

Día 4

One-way ride to Serrano River area

  • 6-7 Hours Slow Riding, Trotting and Cantering,  49 km / 30.4 mi
  • Noche en Campamento Chile Nativo (BL-C)

Today’s ride winds through native beech forests and around small lagoons.

Splendid views will continually follow us – though you’ll find a particularly excellent picture-taking opportunity at today’s highest point, where we’ll observe how the Paine River fuses with the agua waters of Toro Lake, the largest in the region.

From here, we’ll start the descent towards your home away from home for the next two nights: our own Chile Nativo Riverside Campsite.

Rest peacefully in quiet deluxe lotus belle tents on the shores of the Serrano River beneath an impressive view of the formidable black granite peaks of Los Cuernos.

Día 5

One-way ride to Grey Lake & Up-close cruise to Grey Glacier

  • 4-5 Hours Slow Riding, Trotting and Cantering, 17 km / 10.5 mi
  • 3 Horas de Navegación
  • 30 minutes by transfer
  • Noche en Campamento Chile Nativo (BL-C)

A morning ride across huge pampas and a suspension bridge over the Grey River takes us to Grey Lake’s superb viewpoint.

From here we’ll see the numerous floating icebergs that have calved from Grey Glacier and been whittled into fantastic shapes by the sun and wind.

We’ll have lunch at this lookout point, then set off on a short hike through a beech forest and along the beach of the Grey Lake. While hiking, be sure to listen out for the woodpeckers and Austral parakeets that call this forest home! Our 3 hour round-trip cruise along Grey Lake weaves around blue-hued icebergs and stops right in front of Grey Glacier’s massive facade.

Here, we’ll stay for a while to take pictures, observe the glacier’s intricate colors and icy textures – and maybe even see ice chunks calving.

As we make our way back, watch out for the wind-sculpted “ice mushrooms” atop Paine Grande. Ashore once again, a transfer will take us back to our campsite.

P: ¿Cómo es el Campamento Chile Nativo a orillas del Río?
R: El Campamento Chile Nativo es nuestra propia base de operaciones privada ubicada dentro del Parque Nacional Torres del Paine. Perfecto para familias o grupos, es un campamento totalmente equipado ubicado a orillas del río Serrano, lejos del bullicio de Refugios y campings abarrotados. Realizamos todas las operaciones internamente, lo que significa que somos libres de trabajar con nuestro propio personal de confianza, obtener productos locales, seleccionar las mejores comodidades y controlar todas las partes que componen una experiencia de viaje al aire libre. Nuestras carpas dobles de lujo están ubicadas en plataformas elevadas, protegidas contra los elementos climáticos de la Patagonia. En el interior, encontrará colchones de doble altura, acogedores plumones y calefactores que se pueden operar durante la noche para garantizar un cálido descanso nocturno. Los baños, separados para hombres y mujeres con duchas de agua caliente están a pocos pasos de las carpas (tenga en cuenta que la electricidad y el agua caliente en el campamento funcionan de 8 a.m. a 0:00 horas). Las comidas son abundantes, deliciosas y se comparten en un comedor exclusivo con vistas al macizo Paine y sus colores cambiantes y espacios amplios para descansar, relajarse y disfrutar de una gran compañía. Nuestros desayunos buffet, almuerzos para llevar preparados por usted mismo y cenas de tres platos preparadas por el chef son una combinación nutritiva de delicias locales y alimentos de alta energía necesarios para las aventuras que tendremos durante el día. Los veganos, vegetarianos y huéspedes con otras necesidades dietéticas estará muy bien atendidos con una gama de leches alternativas, panes sin gluten, quesos veganos y productos de soja. Y, por supuesto, la cerveza, el vino chileno y el pisco sour marcan el final perfecto para un día de caminata. Nuestro propio anfitrión está siempre en el lugar para responder preguntas y garantizar que su estadía sea lo más cómoda posible. Con factores como generadores, mosquitos y noches frías en la mezcla, nuestro concierge está ahí para aconsejarle cuando cerrar los mosquiteros, cargar dispositivos electrónicos, cerrar su carpa de lujo y encender los calefactores.

P: ¿Debería darle propina a mi guía? Si es así, ¿cuánto es apropiado?
R: Tipping can be a delicate subject and many different nationalities have different tipping cultures. Tips or ‘propinas’ in Chile, are viewed as a reward for good service. When tipping, a good guide and guide assistance who does the job well, has good English and provides a great service, can expect 10 – 15 USD per person per day. It is usual to leave your driver or chauffeur a tip too. Normally around 5 USD per person. These amounts are merely a source to help you or give you a general idea of what is normal or typical. Of course, tipping is always at the discretion of the group members as to what they deem appropriate for the service they received.




Pablo was an excellent guide and managed the need to change our itinerary with great skill. Both Pablo and Manuel, the driver and support person made the trip an excellent experience. Great experience with Chile Nativo from pre-trip coordination and during the trip. No issues with logistics and planned activities.

    Amazing trip! We joined the Torres Del Paine 7 day O trek tour - note that this tour is not a complete O Trek but skipping the part from Camp Frances to Las Torres, which worked in our favour as our holiday is limited and we won’t miss much. Our guide, Debbie was knowledgeable and amicable, and very passionate about hiking. Unfortunately I fell sick during the hike and wished to leave a day earlier than planned. Debbie and Chile Nativo quickly rearranged transportation for us and was very helpful. Throughout the whole process Chile Nativo was very responsive. We had a memorable journey and I would highly recommend Chile Nativo.

    Fantastic experience! We were booked with Chile Nativo via Swoop and had a wonderful experience. Our guides, Tim & Lucile, were awesome. We really enjoyed their company. They were very knowledgeable about the region (the history, animals, landscape, etc). Highly recommend.

    I booked the independent, self-guided Torres Del Paine trek with Chile Nativo’s help and was so glad I did. When I looked to book on my own, everything was all reserved in Torres Del Paine and Chile Nativo was the only agency that could help me find a spot still. To still be able to go on the trip when I wanted to go, to not have to spend so much time planning all the logistics, to get a local’s recommendations on the best way to do the trek…but STILL get to do the trek on my own was amazing and worth every penny. In particular Paolina at the agency was incredibly helpful. I would recommend this agency to anyone looking to hike in Torres del Paine.

    Hiking in Torres with Pepa is like walking with your smartest and wisest friend. She has an incredible depth of knowledge in everything from mycology to government, from geology to history. She is fiercely passionate about conservation and our planet and has dedicated her life to making our world a better place. Our two porters Filipe and Bastian were both incredibly strong and highly professional. Always in the know on where to set up the tent, they picked the best spot in every site we were at. Also, they were an absolute blast to hang out with after the long days hiking. I cannot recommend this particular team highly enough and if you are passionate about the environment, making the world a better place, learning everything there is to know about glaciers, mushrooms, Patagonia, the history of Chile, magma intrusions and edible berries request them by name. Thank you to all three of you for making our experience so special and I hope our paths cross again.

What a great time, a balance of hiking and touring. DO NOT miss the pumas!!! I will definitely go with the Chile Nativo team again, and thanks to Nestor & Juan too!
