Weather Conditions:
Chilean Patagonia is famous for its unpredictable weather and the possibility of experiencing the four seasons in one day. Therefore, it’s important to be prepared for anything. The winter climate is dry and cold with temperatures of between -10º C and 10º C. Weather conditions are more stable between May and October. Because trails may be covered in snow and/or ice, it’s highly recommended that hikers bring appropriate gear to accommodate these conditions.

Please Remember: This program requires a certain physical ability in order to complete successfully. Keep in mind that each member of a guided group will hike at a different rhythm and pace but group members must follow the pace indicated by the guide according to the distance and daylight hours available. Each day’s trek will have a minimum number of kilometers or miles which must be covered. Hiking times are estimated and could be more or less given trail and weather conditions and the groups’ overall rhythm. We encourage our guests to remember that traveling in a guided group allows for a unique experience – bonding with fellow travelers and interacting with the guide and the destination in which they are visiting.

Itinerary

Day 1

E-Bike & Hike Patagonia Rupestre

  • 30 Minute Private Transfer
  • 3 Hour E-Bike Ride, 10 km / 6.2 mi
  • 4 Hour Guided Hike, 11 km / 6.8 mi
  • 1.5 Hour Private Transfer
  • Night at Hotel Estancia El Ovejero Patagónico (BL-D)

In the morning, your guide and private transfer will pick you up taking you just outside of Puerto Natales to a private reserve not open to the public who frequent the Natural Monument Milodon Cave. Once at our starting point, we begin with a smooth, moderate ride bordering Cerro Queso (Cheese Hill) where we continue riding to a beautiful view of the Sofia Lagoon. On clear days we can see Paine Grande and other surrounding peaks set off among the far reaching fjords. Riding onward, we continue along a path closely bordering the Sofia Lagoon which connects us with Cueva de la Ventana (Window Cave). We continue through eaves and cave paintings left by the ancestors of the Ultima Esperanza. We’ll take time along our ride to stop and get up close to the history stored deep in these caves and trails.

We’ll incorporate gentle hikes throughout certain sectors of the reserve both during and after our ride. We’ll visit a viewpoint over the “Cueva Grande” (Large Cave), ascending 600 meters (1,968 ft.) where we’ll be introduced to the fauna and flora of Patagonia.

With sweeping views of the surrounding landscapes, this is a great spot for some first photos and for watching condors soar above us. We’ll pass by natural condor colonies and through native lenga forests, later arriving to the ‘Sofia Lagoon viewpoint’.

After resting a moment and enjoying the spectacular views of the far reaching fjords below, we’ll continue alongside mountainous walls to see our first cave paintings of the day. Our guide will tell us about their significant value and history.

Moving along, we’ll enter another cave equipped with headlamps to discover the millenary stalactite minerals which have taken millions of years to form above.

After carefully inspecting these incredible formations, we leave the cave and head towards the eaves of “Two Horseshoes” where we live an experience in the forest and discover yet more cave paintings on the rocky walls.

As we make our way back, we will visit the Milodon Cave Natural Monument, a 200 meter (656 dt.) long cave where the remains of a mylodon (a large ground sloth) and other early Patagonian animals were discovered.

After our time exploring this magnificent natural formation, we will enjoy a delicious, locally prepared lunch with fresh ingredients. Once we are finished, we’ll take our transfer to the small community of Cerro Castillo location just outside of Torres del Paine National Park. Here we’ll dine together enjoying a delicious meal before tucking in for the night in our charming and cozy accommodations.

Day 2

Hike Estancia Lazo to Weber Bridge

  • 30 Minute Transfer
  • 5 Hour Hike, 13 km / 8 mi
  • 30 Minute Private Transfer
  • Night at Konkashken Cabins (B-BL-D)

After a delicious breakfast in the spacious dining area, we’ll set out 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. From here we’ll hike into Torres del Paine National Park along a generally flat trail through peaceful stretches of native beech and coihue forests teeming with wildlife. As you walk, watch for condors and caranchos circling the skies; guanacos grazing on the hills; and woodpeckers, owls, and lesser-known species such as the cachaña (Austral parakeet), peeking out from the leafy trees. We’ll reach Honda Lagoon and continue on to the Toro Lake lookout (559 m / 1,834 ft.), where 360 degree views of mountains, rivers, lakes and glaciers await. Take a moment to identify the Grey, Serrano and Paine Rivers, Serrano Valley, Mount Balmaceda and the Geike and Tyndall Glaciers. After our short descent to the Weber Bridge, our private transfer awaits to take us to the Rio Serrano area where we are greeted with a freshly prepared welcome dinner and stunning views of the Paine Massif as we settle into our accommodation for the evening, Konkashken Lodge & Cabins.

Day 3

Full-Day Sea Kayaking Expedition on Grey Lake and Grey River

  • 30 Minute Private Transfer
  • 4-5 Hours Paddling, 25 km / 15.5 mi
  • Night at Konkashken Cabins (B-BL-D)

After an early breakfast your transfer will drive you to Grey Lake to meet your kayaking guide. Here, with views of Paine Grande and Grey Glacier as our morning backdrop, you’ll be briefed on kayaking safety and paddling techniques.

You’ll paddle Grey Lake for approximately 2 hours, weaving amongst the floating icebergs that have calved from the glacier and been whittled into natural ice sculptures by the wind and sun.

While paddling, take time to look around you: the granite peaks of Paine Grande, Cordon Olguín and Los Cuernos interplay beautifully with the water’s multiple shades of turquoise.

Leaving Grey Lake we’ll begin our descent of Grey River, which snakes through canyons bubbling with rapids and framed by steep rock faces.

Accompanied by views of the imposing Paine Massif, we’ll paddle for 25 km (15.5 miles) down Grey River until it joins the Serrano River.

After 4-5 hours of paddling we’ll arrive to our end point where we will change out of our wetsuits head back to our cozy cabins to warm up, enjoy dinner, and get an early night’s rest in preparation for our next adventure tomorrow.

Day 4

Round Trip Hike to the Base of the Towers Lookout

  • 2 Hour Transfer
  • 8-10 Hour Hike,  22 km / 13.6 mi
  • 1.5 Hour Transfer (B-BL-D)

Today, we begin early with a energy-boosting breakfast to prepare us for our final trek – the base of the iconic Towers. Along with our guide, we take a 1.5 hour transfer to the Las Torres Sector of the park where our trek begins with an ascent, following the Ascencio River into the Ascencio Valley.

After about an hour, we’ll stop to observe how the valley’s beauty unfolds with rich beech forests, glaciers and waterfalls.

Past this lookout point, we continue uphill and through lush beech forests before ascending a gigantic terminal moraine (the ridge formed at a glacier’s end point) where we’ll be rewarded by the arresting sight of the three Towers themselves.

At this lookout point 900 m (2,953 ft.) above sea level, we’ll rest, take photos and have lunch. Our descent is along the same path, taking us back to our transfer where we will travel to Cerro Castillo, resting tonight in Hotel Estancia Ovejero Patagónico.

This hike is demanding and many parts of the trail are steep. This trek is a minimum of 8 hours along challenging, rugged mountainous terrains. This trek is suitable for travelers with a strong physical stamina.

Day 5

Horseback Ride & Birdwatching Hike at Estancia Vega Castillo

  • 30 Minute Transfer
  • 3 Hour Horseback Ride
  • 1 Hour Birdwatching Hike
  • 2 Hour Transfer (B-BL)

We’ll arrive at Vega Castillo Wetland, a hidden spot in Torres del Paine, teeming with birdlife. This area offers more than 1,000 acres (450 hectares) of wetlands, pampa, and wildlife habitat. We will meet our horses and the local gaucho who will accompany us along our first ride to Vega Castillo Wetland. Once we’ve prepared ourselves and the horses, we set off along a peaceful 3 hour round trip ride, walking and trotting as we follow the Tres Pasos River into the beautiful wetlands and postcard views of the Paine Massif and valley that stretches out around us.

We will enjoy a relaxing walk along the wetlands through this beautiful landscape where we will enjoy birdwatching and have the unique opportunity to observe bird species who inhabit this area.

After our ride, we’ll enjoy a delicious lunch before we say our goodbyes and board our transfer back to Puerto Natales where our journey ends.

  • Guides USD$ 10 to USD$ 15 per person, per day; to be given to your guides directly.

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.
