With endless treks and trails in Torres del Paine National Park, it can be hard to find Patagonia day hikes that won’t leave you running to beat sundown. On this half day hike from Laguna Sofia to Cerro Benitez, enjoy Patagonia’s crystal-clear lakes, vibrant wildlife, and mountain vistas — and get home by supper.
Begin your day in the morning or afternoon with hotel pick-up from Natales to the trailhead at Laguna Sofia. Marvel at the soft rolling hills surrounding the lake and at the towering Andean peaks on the horizon as you set off on your hike.
Enjoy an easy to moderate hike up Cerro Benitez with plenty of stunning views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. Upon arrival at the “summit” of your hike, you’ll get a breathtaking look at the jagged mountain peaks, and the winding Sound of the Last Hope.

You’ll enjoy a snack at the lookout point before beginning your descent back to the banks of Laguna Sofia.
