Patagonia is the stuff of adventure legend—a rugged region at the tip of South America defined by glaciers, ice fields, peaks and steppe.
No spot in Patagonia is more iconic than Torres del Paine National Park, and the “W Trek” is one of the greatest on the planet. (Basically, it zigzags across the Cordillera del Paine in the shape of a W!)
This tour is a fantastic way to undertake it—a self-guided option that provides all the organizational support you could need but freedom to make it your own unique experience. You will trek beneath Patagonia’s spectacular volcanic peaks, past aquamarine lakes and even see the famous “Towers”—all in an unforgettable, life-altering adventure.
