Itinerary

Day 1

Transfer to Torres del Paine – Round Trip Hike to Las Torres Lookout Point

2 hours by private transfer

8-10 hour round-trip, 21 km

Night at Camping Torres (BL-D)

We’ll pick you up in Puerto Natales at 7:30AM and travel to Torres del Paine National Park along unpaved roads and past lagoons and pampas; accompanied at times by the guanacos (relatives of llamas), grey foxes, flamingos and black-necked swans that call them home. Our first challenge is the ascent to the Towers base lookout point, following the Ascencio River into the Ascencio Valley. After our first hour’s trek we’ll pause to observe how the valley’s beauty unfolds with rich beech forests, glaciers and waterfalls. We’ll then continue uphill and through lush forests before we prepare to ascend a gigantic terminal moraine (a ridge formed at a glacier’s end point). At the top, we’ll be rewarded by the arresting sight of the Towers themselves. At this lookout point 900 meters above sea level, the three granite spires appear to burst dramatically out of the rocky landscape, while at their base a green-blue lagoon provides a counterpoint of stillness. Here, we’ll have lunch and take pictures before beginning our descent down the same path and to our first campsite for the evening where we will dine in the refugio for dinner.

Day 2

Trek from Camping Las Torres to Serón - Trekking Through Lush Beech Forests

4-5 hours, 9 km

Night at Serón Campsite (B-BL-D)

Depending on the weather, our early morning start will be lit up by orange-tinged views of the Towers. Our path takes us through a very old forest of beech trees where we may hear woodpeckers or find fresh puma tracks. Today’s 9 km hike is the Circuit’s easiest and takes us along a well-marked, slightly sloping trail. Along the way, an exceptional view of Paine Chico Mountain will accompany us. Our destination is Serón Campsite, where we’ll set up camp and enjoy a replenishing dinner.

Day 3

Serón to Dickson - Accompanied by Wildflowers & Craggy Peaks

6-7 hours, 18,5 km

Night at Dickson Campsite (B-BL-D)

Depending on the season, today’s leg shows off the Park’s gorgeous floral delights, as orchids, calceolarias, violets and oxalis flower. Circling Paine Lake, several impressive mountain views will appear, such as Cerro Escudo and Cerro Cabeza del Indio (in which the profile of an Indian is seen as if carved into the rocks). At the beginning of the Paine River we’ll see the curved peak of Cerro Cubo, as well as Lake Dickson (a lake straddling Chile and Argentina). Tonight, we’ll set up camp at Dickson Campsite.

Day 4

Dickson to Los Perros - Alongside Mountains, Rivers & Glaciers

5 hours, 9 km

Night at Los Perros Campsite (B-BL-D)

Today is a day to please the senses, filled with beautiful sights and textures. Often touted as one of the most beautiful sections of this wilder side of Torres del Paine, we’ll hike through ancient beech forests, wander undulating trails and follow Los Perros River. Mountains, waterfalls and lush vegetation will never be far away, as our trail crosses the river via suspension bridge and arrives at the base of our second terminal moraine; this time belonging to Glacier Los Perros, a hanging glacier that feeds the crystalline lagoon at its base. A final half hour hike takes us to today’s destination, Los Perros Campsite. Tonight’s campsite is the only one on the Circuit without hot showers and standard bathroom facilities such as flushing toilets.

Day 5

Los Perros to Grey via the Famous John Gardner Pass

10-11 hours, 22 km

Night at Grey Campsite (B-BL-D)

The most strenuous day of the Paine Circuit has arrived, bringing demanding trails and variable weather conditions. Of course, your efforts will be more than rewarded with some of Torres del Paine’s most heart-stirring landscapes, experienced by very few visitors to Torres del Paine. We’ll begin along a clear trail through forests, then make our way through swamp-like section before beginning our ascent to the John Gardner Pass. At this Pass, 1200 meters above sea level, Patagonia’s famous winds are strong and the views across Grey Glacier and of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field’s still unexplored peaks are astonishing. The trail now takes you alongside the glacier, ascending and descending through forests of fallen trees and beneath the imposing, almost muscular granite walls of Cordon Olguín. As we come closer to Grey Glacier we may see an ice calving (where chunks of ice break off a glacier’s edge). Tonight we’ll recharge at Grey Campsite.

Day 6

Grey to Paine Grande - *Optional Morning Activities at Grey Lake (must be booked in advance)

3.5 hours, 11 km

Night at Paine Grande Campsite (B-BL-D)

Our morning begins slowly, resting and stretching around camp. Depending on your energy levels, choose from several options this morning. Walk to the Grey Glacier’s lookout point and watch for ice calvings on its massive walls; complete an ice hike with the aid of crampons; or kayak on Grey Lake, paddling around icebergs and in front of the glacier. Later, we’ll have lunch at the Refugio and hike to Pehoe Lake. (Ice hike and kayaking expedition at an additional fee, advance booking required, please contact our Travel Specialists.)

*Optional Excursions Must Be Booked In Advanced - Ask Our Trip Specialists About Either Activity!

Day 7

Trek the French Valley and Transfer to Puerto Natales

7-8 hours, 17 km

35 minutes by catamaran

2 hours by private transfer (B-BL)

Today's destination, the French Valley, is a spectacular natural basin surrounded by peaks and hanging glaciers. This is a return hike, so we will be able to leave our packs behind and trek lightly. We start by walking around Paine Grande, the highest peak in Torres del Paine, through native Patagonian firebush and evergreen beech forests. At the suspension bridge over the French River, the arresting hanging glacier atop the valley will come into sight. From here, we’ll walk for another hour, ascending 300m through a dreamlike Japanese garden landscape before arriving at the lookout point (the “Plateau”). Your reward is a heart-stirring bird’s eye view of granite peaks and hanging glaciers. To one side, the French Glacier and Paine Grande (3050 m); while to the other, La Espada, La Hoja, La Máscara and the main and north “horns” of Los Cuernos arch upwards. In the upper section of the Valley, Cerro Catedral and Cerro Fortaleza loom like turrets above the landscape. We’ll take our time to have lunch at the viewpoint, surrounded by these imposing peaks and open skies. Our return hike is along the same track, and the catamaran will take us back across Pehoe Lake to meet our private transfer who will take us safely back to Puerto Natales.

FAQ's

Q: Where do I keep my luggage that I won´t need during my trek while I am hiking in the park?
A: The majority of the hotels and hostels will store luggage for their guests who are staying with them prior to and after their travels in the park. If not, we will happily store your luggage securely in our office until you arrive back from your trek and will deliver this to your hotel where you will be staying in Puerto Natales. We ask that you come to our Office between the hours of 09:00 – 13:00 or 15:00 – 19:00 to drop these off if you are not able to make it to the briefing the day prior to your trip.

Q: Do I need to carry my own camping gear during this trek?
A: Guests who participate in the Paine Big Circuit trek are required to bring and carry their own sleeping bag and sleeping mat. If you wish to rent these items from us, you may do so in our office. The cost is USD$ 12 per night for both items (USD$ 70 total). Tents are provided for guests and will be setup each night upon your arrival to the campsites. Tents are double occupancy and will be shared among guests of the same group and same gender. If you do not want to share a tent with another group member, you will be required to pay a single-supplement fee. Porters will carry the tents from campsite to campsite and guests are not required to carry their own tent along the trek.

Q: Are porters included in this program who will carry our belongings?
A: We bring porters to carry the group’s shared equipment (such as tents, food and cooking utensils). However, each guest must carry their personal belongings including their sleeping bag and camp mattress. If you want to avoid carrying too much weight you can pay for a private porter. These porters carry a maximum of 15 kilos in a dry bag provided by Chile Nativo, a service which is usually good to share between 2 – 3 people and must be booked for 5 days. A dry bag will be delivered in the campsite or refugio upon your arrival.

Q: What time will we arrive back to Puerto Natales on the last day?
A: On the last day of this trek, your group will arrive to Puerto Natales between 21:00hrs – 22:00hrs and you will therefore need to stay the night in Puerto Natales.

Reviews

I want to thank you all for helping me achieve a lifelong dream to explore the most beautiful place in the world. I specifically want to thank Camilo for being an outstanding guide. He exceeded all of our expectations throughout our experience. He is obviously knowledgeable and highly experienced in all things Patagonia. He was patient and made me feel comfortable and confident on the trail, which meant a great deal as I am not as fast as usual being five months pregnant.

He gave quick and fun anecdotes about the surrounding areas (what peak that is, what bird that was, what trees these are, and the history of the region), which we loved. He was attentive and proactive to any pains we had (7 days of hiking without heavy training caused some aches), and had packed a lot of first aid that helped.

He went above and beyond with making us feel comfortable at camp, making us pre-dinner dishes and making sure we knew where and when we needed to be. He really was a “rockstar” of a guide. He’s amazing.

Gratefully,

Paine Big Circuit, Jess & Phil, USA

I believe that Chile Nativo is very professional and has a lot of experience with trekking. It was very nice having guides and staff at Chile Nativo being fluent in English so I was able to get my questions answered.

Paine Big Circuit, Chris S., USA

Exceeded my expectations! Food was delicious and plentiful, scenery was spectacular, the hike itself was challenging and rewarding. Loved the way it was structured – getting kms into the legs without a pack on day 1, short distance with the pack on day 2, then longer day 3 and easier day 4 ready to gear up for the pass. Loved every minute of it!

Paine Big Circuit, Susie, Australia

Nice itinerary, excellent & knowledgeable guide and porters who were very good with group and assisted with all requirements. Very happy with overall experience! Enjoyed it thoroughly.

Paine Big Circuit, Karel L., South Africa

Chile Nativo’s service from booking to final drop off was fantastic! Really great value. We were a small group of 6 trekkers and you provided great tents and gear. Our guide, Armando, was extremely knowledgeable and experienced in the park. With 20 years guiding experience he was still very professional and engaged with our group and clearly very passionate about the area. It’s a fantastically beautiful place! I would definitely recommend Chile Nativo to anyone looking for a quality, authentic Torres del Paine trekking experience.

Mary Garden, USA

The hiking was challenging but absolutely worth it. The scenario was outstanding and the reason we chose to go to Patagonia. The guides, Pablo and Fran, were simply amazing and made the whole experience so memorable. I have done several hiking trips, and this was the first one that I have used a guide service. I am so glad I did.

Tim N., USA

Excellent! more than met our expectations and then some. Our guides Mauricio and Fernando were very personable, always safety first, very knowledgeable about the area. They answered all questions enthusiastically, they were good cooks and they kept us informed always of what was ahead. Excellent guides and would highly recommend them.

Trina H., USA

I can’t say enough good things about Mauricio, Gerardo (our guides) and the Chile Nativo organization. We had a wonderful trip – everything felt extremely well organized and I always felt safe and taken care of. Our guides were able to make the trip feel special and to deal with our group that contained a wide variety of personalities. They also did a great job explaining the park and our trek to us and helping us to learn about Patagonia.

Lee E., USA

Amazing! We went on the trip for our honeymoon and could not have wished for more! The guides were excellent, especially Fernando!! His knowledge and personable nature and patience were excellent!

Evelyn S., Australia

Excellent trek, enjoyed every minute of it. There were many companies doing this same trip but I’m so glad I picked this one! Everything was smooth with making the reservation,itinerary details laid out, I felt taken care of.

    I am very happy with the service Chile Nativo provided. First of all, the experience during the trip itself was... amazing, the accommodation was more than I could ask for, the snack was delicious and our guide was not only very friendly but also extremely intelligent - he could answer all kind of questions we threw him about the park, animals, and geography! But the best part of Chile Nativo came up when a crisis hit. I got on the wrong bus the day before the tour started which prevented me from getting to the tour in time as a result. Daniella and Johana from the team were incredibly resourceful and kind to help me out of this situation. They worked after hours to help me find a private car that was willing to drive me from El Calafate to Puerto Natales in Chile. Johana even came to the office early morning to greet me and attend to me. I was beyond grateful for their professional service that really goes the extra mile in making sure I get to make to my trip and enjoy it thoroughly. Highly recommend Chille Nativo to everyone visiting Patagonia!read more

    Working with Chile Nativo was a very positive experience. They were able to accommodate our dates with no issues,... despite the dates being offset from their usual schedule. Everyone we worked with was communicative and helpful, and we felt well prepared given the information (e.g. packing list) they provided. The most important benefit of traveling with Chile Nativo was our access to one of their guides, Fernando.I cannot give enough positive feedback for Fernando. While everything you'd expect from a good guide was present, Fernando delivers so far above and beyond what's expected. Any question we had about a tree, for example, Fernando could answer, and then provide several layers more detail and information. I’ve never been hugely into geology, but Fernando’s knowledge of the rock formations in the park added a fascinating element to our hike; everything around us became even more interesting. By the afternoon of the first day, it felt as though we were hiking with a good friend who happened to know everything about the park. We were genuinely sad to leave once the trip was complete. The entire time, I felt that we were getting the very most out of our hike, and that Fernando knew the tips and tricks to avoiding crowds and getting the best views. A huge plus is his photography skills, too! Fernando was recommended to us by a friend, and we’ve been insistent to all our friends who’ve asked about our trip that they should also use Chile Nativo and ask for Fernando.read more

    Upon booking two weeks in Antarctica, I added this trip as an afterthought. And after spending time on the seventh... continent, I was worried nothing else would impress or excite me. Boy, was I wrong! Trekking in Patagonia was equally as mesmerizing. From the stunning scenery, to our naturalist guide, the accommodations, and food, the entire experience goes toe-to-toe with Antartica. My only regret is that I ever considered it an add on. I plan to return to give Patagonia the proper time and attention it deserves.read more

    I did the Fjord Trail with Chile Nativo and it was beautiful! The landscapes surpass what you can even imagine. We were... the only ones in nature for 3 days! The horses were nice, I had never done this before and I felt safe. I was never cold at night (make sure you rent your sleeping bag for this). We finished our tour with a boat trip on the Serrano River, back to Puerto Natales and we got to see the Balmacero Glacier and the Serrano Glacier (and walk around it). It is well organized and definitely a different way to travel and see nature in Patagonia !read more

    My wife and I just completed the O Circuit with Chile Nativo. Our guides Fernando and Ignacio were absolutely amazing!... Aside from the beautiful trip, we learned so much because of Chile Nativo Travel and our two guides. They were very accommodating of my wife's food allergies and were constantly upbeat and encouraging to us and our group. They even taped up ankles and sore joints when we expressed any sort of discomfort. A+ experience all around!read more

    I can't recommend this company enough! The initial planning and email correspondence leading up to our trip was... professional and seamless. They even took care of adding on and planning an additional leg to our trip to Argentinean Patagonia with a reliable local company there. Most importantly though, our Fast Trek W trip with Chile Nativo was everything we hoped it would be and more. Our guides, Baru and Nacio, were THE BEST. I was sad to leave them at the end of our 3 days together. They were responsible, knowledgeable, kind and so much fun - and they kept us going when spirits might have been a little down after 2 straight days of pouring rain and relentless wind. :) The camp is fantastic - the domes were super comfortable and the dining hall dome was a great meeting place to eat (and stretch and drink wine and pisco and even dance!). The drivers were great, the chefs were impressive (thanks Alexis!! - the food was an unexpected treat because it was seriously good, not just camping good). We somehow also managed to get extra lucky and click with the rest of the people in our group and are already planning our next trip together, so thanks for that added bonus! It was a magical trip that we will never forget. Thanks Chile Nativo! ❤️read more

    We had a once in a lifetime experience with Chile Nativo and Felipe which we will never forget. We enjoyed the 5D/4N... Torres del Paine Winter Multisport Adventure in early September. It was fantastic to be there in the “fringe” season, the weather was beautiful and we felt like we had the place to ourselves! We were very fortunate to have Felipe all to ourselves as well, giving us flexibility around our capabilities and the weather. Felipe was incredibly knowledgeable about the area, the fauna, flora and even the geology (which impressed me as I’m a geologist!!). Felipe’s English is perfect, his cooking was delicious, and we felt very much at home during our trip. Our kayaking was cancelled due to very extreme weather, and Felipe not only found an alternative for the day for us, but also arranged for a generous refund.There was an issue with our international bank payment (through no fault of Chile Nativo’s) and the entire team continued to communicate with us and chase the payment at their end for weeks. We really appreciated this!Cannot recommend Chile Nativo, Felipe and Torres del Paine enough!read more

    My boyfriend and I were stuck when we waited too long to book accommodations in Torres del Paine for a trek we only had... 4 days of our trip to cover. A friend of a friend sent us to Chile Nativo (he had recently completed travel they helped book), and they saved the day. They tailored a trek according to our tight timeline. The route (thanks to Cecilia), the refugios, the adjustments to plan (thanks to Valentina in the Puerto Natales office), the warm hospitality (namely from Luis the van driver) and the overall organization left us with so little to have to think about that we could focus solely on enjoying ourselves...and on weathering the elements!Highly recommended.read more

    Charlie and I had the most wonderful experience working with Isadora at Chile Nativo to plan our Patagonia trip. She... was a great communicator and organized everything for us based upon a great dialog between us with her. Our guide, Felipe Zuniga could not have been more wonderful. He was flexible and brought an amazing knowledge and experience to our trip that could not be equaled. Our memories of our honeymoon in Patagonia will always bring a smile and great memories! Hopefully we get the opportunity to return!read more
