Anchored like a ship by Lake Pehoé, at the heart of Torres del Paine National Park, explora Patagonia has a privileged location from where to go out and explore the park. All our programs include accommodation, transfers from and to the airport, meals, and beverages, and a menu of more than 40 exploration routes designed by our outdoors team.
Our treks and horseback rides include mountains, turquoise lakes, glaciers, lenga tree forests, viewpoints, prairies, and rivers, in addition to the most iconic spans of the trekking circuit known as “W."
There are many different exploration possibilities within the Park, as diverse as their visitor’s preferences. Each itinerary is a unique experience and adventure, where every detail has its own charm. With over 40 explorations, we cover all areas in the Park either on foot, horseback or by van. We provide our travelers the opportunity of discovering the landscape according to the choices they make daily. Our explorations, always led by a competent guide from our School of Guides, take place in groups of eight travelers at most and include walks towards crystal clear, woods of lenga trees, hiking to viewpoints and horseback riding through the Park’s pampas (grasslands) and rivers.
One of the most popular circuits is the mystic W that goes around the trails that surround the Paine Massif. This circuit requires at least five days for completion. Our explorations to the Torres base, the Grey Glacier and the Valle del Francés (Frenchman’s Valley) follow part of this circuit. A good option is to combine some of these explorations with others to less familiar places within the Park, either walking or horseback riding.
