Patagonia Hiking trips,Torres del Paine Circuit

The Torres del Paine Circuit is a goal for serious trekkers while visiting Patagonia. This hike is one of the most beautiful and most demanding treks in the area. During the eleven days of hiking you will notice signs of glaciation and ancient seismic movements, which was how the erratic formations seen in this park were created more than 12,000 years ago.

Throughout the expedition you will hike across mountains, through pampas and forests, and beside glaciers and lakes. You will be able to enjoy the peacefulness of being a bit off the beaten track.

Torres del Paine Multi Activity Circuit

We looked for less-traveled trails; places where hikers must have permits to explore the valleys and hills. We wanted to find a place where Baqueanos (patagonian cowboys) historically traveled with their livestock and re-discover paths that were used to cross the mountain ranges between Argentina and Chile. These historic trails provide a hiker with a feeling of being alone with nature and allow you to see Torres del Paine from a different perspective.
