Patagonia’s top trek – the Torre de Paine O Circuit (inc the W trek)
March 2021 O Circuit (W Trek) Torre de Paine National Park, Chile
The O Circuit Trek is for those who truly love being out in nature, remote and away from the crowds. To come to this NP and only walk the “W” you are missing out on the best. The O Circuit is 8 days but well worth the extra time and you carry day pack only and can choose to stay in refugios or enjoy the comfort of a tent set up on a timber platform. Refugios provide a full breakfast, packed lunch and a hot 3 course meal each day. Plus you will have the support of both our company guide and a local Patagonian guide to walk the remote 5 days on the back of the mountains and up and over the pass to the superb views over the Southern Patagonia Ice Fields – the second largest in the world. Patagonia is renown for its windy rainy cloudy weather but by going in March we are more likely to have sunshine, clear skies and little wind. Sea kayaking at Glacier Grey is fantastic and an extra option and also an additional night at Torre Refugio is optional to give more opportunity to see the fabulous Torre’s in their splendor at dawn. Price is to be advised closer to 2021 and will include transport from Puerto Natales to the NP. Please send us your expression of interest as the small group is limited and filling fast.
March 2021 Fitz Roy & the Cerro Torre Loop 3 or 4 days
After experiencing the O Circuit in Chile, it is an easy bus connection to cross the Andes into Argentina to trek the outstanding scenery of Mt Fitz Roy & the Cerro Torre loop. Most trekkers do this on several day walks but they are missing out on experiencing the early morning light and the sunsets on these amazing lake and mountain vistas. As it is relatively short distances to walk to each camp, we hire our camping equipment in El Chalten and share the load up to the campsites. Supplies of food are obtained in El Chalten, especially the beautiful fresh bread on the morning we leave as the aroma greets you as you walk along the main street to the beginning of our trek.
Small group only so please send us your expression of interest as soon as possible.
