Description

Torres del Paine is South America’s finest national park. Soaring vertically more than 2000m/6500ft above the Patagonian steppe, the granite pillars of Torres del Paine dominate the landscape. It is a vast massif with many attractions including azure lakes, lush forests, hanging glaciers, alpine lakes, roaring rivers and camps/refugios surrounded by rugged mountain terrain.

It is also home to the top predator of South America, the puma. The Chilean Patagonia has the biggest concentration of pumas in the world. We will go on a unique Patagonian expedition in 4 x 4 trucks to find them and explore the wonders of Patagonia.

Join us in this unique route that combines the most beautiful spots of the park with off the beaten path highlights.
