Hike, bike and/or navigate in Torres del Paine National Park

This amazing tour will take you on trails reaching the pristine landscapes of Torres del Paine! Amazing glaciers, lakes, forests and the mighty Paine Towers, will provide a constant delight for your trekking-hungry soul!

Important: This trip offers daily departures from El Calafate or Punta Arenas, and the activity of each day will depend on the day of the week. You will be able to choose an easy or an active option each day, while enjoying superb comfort and ease at the exclusive Patagonia domes, a unique experience of accommodation.

*This itinerary is available also for 3 and 4 days, don’t hesitate to request it.

Day 1 - The Patagonian Adventure Starts…

The trip starts in Punta Arenas, Puerto Natales or El Calafate (Argentina). We will take you to the world famous Torres del Paine National Park.

During southern summer the sun sets around 11 pm, so as you drive in you’ll have plenty of light to admire the Patagonian steppe with its guanaco and snow-peaked mountain horizon. Before arriving though, there are a couple stops. One is at Puerto Natales, a small but lively town on the shores of Seno Ultima Esperanza – “Last Hope Sound”. You are invited to check out the town, leave any luggage you will not need for the trek in our office, and finally enjoy a hearty lunch with delicious local food. The other stop is at Cueva de Milodon, a massive prehistoric cave where the remains of a giant ground sloth were discovered in the 1890’s. The surrounding area is very scenic with plenty of wild birds to be seen. The day ends with a dinner and overnight at the Lodge.

Day 2 - Excursion in Torres del Paine (Trek Towers Base)

This day you can choose between any of the activities offered at the Lodge. There are easy and active options, and the excursion of each day will depend on the day of the week, according to the schedule of the Lodge.
Easy level excursions include Drive & Walk Western Lakes, Navigation Glacier Gery, Easy walk or bike Laguna Azul, Sarmiento Lake and Fauna Trail, Wild Horses tracking.

Active Level activities include Drive & Walk Western Lakes, Hike Cerro Ferrier, Trek Towers Base, Navigation on Lake Pehoe and Hike along French Valley, Lazo Weber Hike or Cerro Paine.

A great possibility for your first day would be to Trek the Towers Base, the most famous trekking trail in Torres del Paine NP. Here, you will walk from the Camp and start the winding uphill path to Ascencio Valley. Dry mountain spots, beech forests and small rivers are passed along the scenic walk into the valley. It’s not a difficult walk, but energy should nevertheless be saved for the final challenge: the moraine. This mass of boulders is the last guardian before your face to face meeting with the uplifting Torres del Paine. The moraine is sufficiently steep to consider doing it slowly and with an adequate amount of precaution. After a considerable effort, the Towers come into full view, rising majestically in front of you with the glacial lake visible below. This is one of the most breathtaking sights of the world! The famous Torres del Paine (2, 900 m/ 9, 400 ft) consist of three gigantic granite monoliths, the remains of a great cirque sheared away by the forces of glacial ice. There, you can have lunch with this impressive view and then return to the camp along the Ascencio Valley.

Day 3 - Excursion in Torres del Paine (Navigation to Glacier Gery)

Spend another day at this impressive National Park, where you will be able to choose between any of the scheduled activities (Easy or Active Level) for the day of the week.
A good choice for your third day could be to take the Navigation to Glacier Grey. If you decide to take this excursion, you will hike from Paine Grande Lodge along the shores of mountain-lined Lake Pehoe to the northern end of glacial Lake Grey.

You will enjoy a picnic lunch and then board the boat that sails to the blue face of Glacier Grey. You’ll navigate through the lake and marvel at this calving glacier with its floating pieces of ice. If the weather conditions do not allow taking the navigation through Lake Grey, you’ll instead hike to Glacier. Then, at Pudeto you will board the catamaran to cross Lake Pehoe. From there, you will take a short drive back to the lodge, where you’ll spend the night.

Day 4 - Excursion in Torres del Paine (Navigation on Lake Pehoe and Hike along French Valley)

It’s time to choose between any of the activities offered by the Lodge for you last day in Torres del Paine NP! A great possibility would be to take Navigation on Lake Pehoe and Hike along French Valley.

In case you take this tour, after breakfast you will start your day driving towards Pudeto dock, located by the shores of Pehoe Lake. Once there, you wil board the catamaran that will take you to the northern west sector of the Lake from where you will start the challenging trek to Valle Frances (French Valley), taking a steep trail that goes into the very heart of the Paine Massif.

How deep you go depends on the groups’ rhythm. An active walk leads to the hanging bridge over the French River, located at the foot of the south east face of the Massif. From this point, you can enjoy a truly wonderful view and then continue up the trail until reaching the upper prospects of the valley.

After taking a picnic in this gorgeous scenario, an optional trek to Mirador Britanico is available as well, it’s very intense but the entire group of geological formations of the high valley can be admired here: Hoja (Blade), Máscara (Mask), Espada (Sword), Catedral (Cathedral), Aleta de Tiburón (Shark’s Fin) and the magnificent Fortaleza (Fortress)!

You will descend through an undulating terrain of mixed grassland and light forest until reaching the Refugio Paine Grande, located in the peaceful shores of Lake Pehoe.

Thanks for all info, help and the organization of our trip !

I chose to travel with Say Hueque because we were looking for a trustworthy agency with knowledge and connections in Argentina and Chili. The booking process was smooth, no problems and good follow-up.

All hotels were good but Rio Serrano in Torres Del Paine was great. Our favourite excursion was the hiking in El Chalten and the mini-trekking on PMoreno- are unique !

Olaf from Urban biking and Nico on the full day TDP-trip did a fine job. Thanks for all info, help and the organization of our trip !

Thanks again for everything

I won a competition on facebook through TourRadar. I started rock climbing, hiking and in general outdoors activities in 2016 and I have always come across Patagonia as a must destination for climbers, hikers and mountain lovers. My first memory of Fitz Roy was when Tommy Coldwell and Alex Honnold did the Fitz Traverse in 2015 which means that they traversed all the towers in the Fitz roy range going up and down all in one push that took them a week to complete. Especially El Chalten and Torres del Paine were on my list for travelling destinations. So when I saw the trips TourRadar was offering in the competition I chose the 9 days Best of Patagonia.

The booking process was very smooth and I was communicating via email with both people from TourRadar and then with people from Say Hueque. Laura Rosales before we get to Argentina helped out a lot in terms of explaining things and booking the hotels we stayed at. All the hotels were lovely and we enjoyed our stay in every single one. Also Agostina was always available and was tracking down our whereabouts making sure everything was going alright. Thanks very much to both of you.

As I mentioned we really enjoyed our stays in all 3 hotels, but if I had to choose I would say Pudu Lodge was my favorite since El Chalten for me was the highlight of the whole trip. The girls in the front desk where amazing and super helpful. Also the location was terrific, just next to the hiking trails. My mom’s favorite was the one in Puerto Natales Weskar Patagonian Lodge because of the nice atmosphere and the great view.

My favorite excursion was the Torres del Paine with the border crossing over to Chile. Despite the cold, the wind and the really bad visibility it was a great excursion, with a great walk next to the lakes where we caught a glimpse of the rock towers, mainly their lower parts. But it was amazing to see the Chilean side of Patagonia as well.

My favorite moment from my trip was in day 1 when I reached the Mirador Laguna de los tres and the lake was frozen so I could walk on it. I got to the level of the lake facing the Fitz Roy range right in front of me and starting walking towards the granite towers. I was alone on the lake and the only thing I could hear was the sound of my footsteps on the snow that cover the whole lake. I would never forget the freedom, happiness and serenity I felt while I was so close to Fitz Roy and on a frozen lake. It never crossed my mind that Laguna de los tres would be frozen, I expected it to be a blue lake or even brown from the mud and melted snow coming from the mountains surrounding the lake. It was a lovely surprise.

Our guide in Perito Moreno Glacier excursion was amazing. Her name was Daniela ( I am pretty sure I remember correctly). She could speak English and German (and Spanish of course) and she was very sweet and knowledgeable and gave us a great overview of the park and Perito Moreno glacier. Everyone in the group had a great day in the Glaciers’ National Park.

I am extremely pleased about all the aspects of the trip. You guys did a great job organising everything perfectly. All I had to do was to follow the timetable and practise my Spanish with the bus drivers, taxi drivers, hotel employees, guides which I really enjoyed by the way, since I want to improve my Spanish level. My only complaint goes to the weather and particularly to a group of clouds that took away some amazing views of Fitz Roy, Cerro Torre and Torres del Paine. But I was aware of the Patagonian weather and how unstable and unpredictable it can be so I was prepared for the worst. Afterall no one can control the weather. To be honest we had some glorious, sunny days during our trip.

One last thing I would recommend would be to add one more day in El Chalten to itinerary (take one of the rest days in El Calafate and add it in El Chalten for example) since for me 2 days seemed a too few. I am saying that just in case the weather is not good and maybe somebody wants to try the trails again to get better conditions and views. The town and people of El Chalten were great and I would have loved to stay a bit longer there.

Thanks again for everything.
