Torres del Paine National Park

Chile's spectacular Torres del Paine National Park is one of the most famous areas of Patagonia, with those much-photographed eponymous towering granite peaks that glow pink, red and orange with the sunset. As well as its mountains, Torres contains glaciers, rivers, lakes, waterfalls and abundant flora and fauna, leading it to be considered among the most beautiful places in the world.

Will, Hero and Ysobel are here to help give you the inside track.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • On a Torres de Paine National Park tour you can trek to the base of the towers to enjoy a picnic lunch with unprecedented views of the landscape
  • There's no shortage of means to explore, from boats, kayaks, mountain bikes, horses - and, of course, your good old feet

Torres de Paine Trekking and Tours

Although the national park is a vast, pristine wilderness consisting of 598,000 acres, the park has a number of excellent lodges and a sprinkling of luxury eco-hotels as well as camping options for hardy trekkers. A great excursion for hikers is to trek to the base of the towers and enjoy a picnic lunch with unprecedented views of the Torres del Paine National Park.

Wildlife roams the unspoilt terrain freely, from the guanaco; delicate cousin of the llama, to flamingos, myriad bird species including the mighty condor, and even the puma. The distances are large and after the flight to Punta Arenas, it's a good seven hour car journey via Puerto Natales into the park itself, so an overnight stay is often well worth it in order to break up the travelling.

Original Highlight

The weather here is wild and unpredictable, but don't let that stop you climbing to the base of the towers if you can. The view from the top is breathtaking on a clear day, and even if it's a bit cloudy, the sense of achievement is well worth it.

A note on price

Chile doesn't come cheap, but don't let that put you off! Many of the hotels are all-inclusive (meals and excursions included), so you usually don't need to worry about expenses when you are there. A two week luxury holiday to Chile staying at some of our top choice hotels could cost around £6,000 per person. Learn more about our pricing
