This adventurous trip through the heart of Chile's Torres del Paine National Park, one of the greatest trekking destinations in the world, is especially designed for single travelers as there is no additional cost for traveling alone. You will be paired with other travelers of the same gender to share accommodations at the EcoCamp though the rest of the trek features camping and communal mountain refugios. This trek follows the famous "W" route over several days of extensive hiking from 5 to 13 miles per day, penetrating into the heart of the Paine Massif. Highlights include Grey Glacier, French Valley/Paine Grande, and the Towers of Paine.
Carry just a day pack while you hike among spectacular mountain peaks over undulating terrain at elevations below 2,500'. Well-maintained trails contour past turquoise lakes, waterfalls, hanging glaciers, and alpine meadows where guanaco roam. Additional optional hikes to high base camps and lookouts afford spectacular views of sheer rock walls, calving glaciers, soaring condors, and chances to observe climbers.
Leave land behind and take to the Serrano River to depart Torres del Paine on a 4-day/3-night kayaking adventure trip. Paddle past the remote Tyndall and Balmaceda glaciers, imposing mountains and secret fjords that most travelers to Torres del Paine never encounter. After two nights split between a tented camp and a cozy mountain lodge, enter Bernardo O'Higgins National Park, where we trade our kayaks for a catamaran for a final ride across the Last Hope Fjord to Puerto Natales, keeping an eye out for austral dolphins and sea lions.
