Torres Del Paine National Park

Torres Del Paine National Park (or Parque Nacional Torres del Paine) is one of the world's last great, unspoiled spaces, green fields and chill glittering lakes spread out beneath the naked granite spires of the Cordillera del Paine.

These epic massifs, with their wintry snow raiments, call rock climbers and ice hikers to their feet with promises of an adventure at the edge of their abilities. Less ambitious visitors will find all sorts of wonderful trails through the wilderness and herds of guanaco (a type of small, Patagonian llama) that can be enjoyed in a few hours; buses run between lodging and the different trailheads and vistas. The famous W trail takes 9 days for full circuit, and requires more serious preparation.

Practical Info

Torres Del Paine National Park is located about 5 hours north of the town of Punta Arenas, the closest major city. Most visitors arrive at the Carlos Ibáñez Airport (PUQ), about 20 km (12 mi) north of town, with direct flights to most major Chilean cities. There are also ferries, geared to tourists, that make the trip.

By bus, it's about 3 hours on a good gravel road from Punta Arenas to Puerto Natales, the closest major town to the park (112 km/70 mi), with a range of hotels and other services. While Punta Arenas is well worth exploring, you can catch a bus right from the airport to Puerto Natales. Buses run from there to, and throughout, the park.

There are pricey lodges and dormitories (called refugios), inside the park; make reservations well in advance, particularly during the October to March high season. There are also several developed campsites, which it's best to book early.
