Torres del Paine National Park is considered one of the most spectacular national parks in the world. Voted by National Geographic among the top 5 most beautiful places on Earth, Torres del Paine is home to towering jagged mountain peaks, crystal blue lakes, and ice fields that extend the entire breadth of the horizon.
On this Torres del Paine easy-going day trip, you’ll encounter the full diversity of the park’s stunning landscapes — from the mirrored mountains in Lake Amarga, to the Salto Grande Waterfall, to the unrivaled Torres del Paine.
Begin your day with hotel pick-up and transfer to the park. Along the way, you’ll pass through wild Patagonia and make your first stop at Cerro Castillo. This small village is just outside of the national park, and you’ll have the opportunity to purchase any last minute water or snacks you may need for the day.
From Cerro Castillo, you’ll stop at Lakes Sarmiento and Amarga for your first outstanding looks at the landscape, and to hopefully spot a few alpaca-like guanacos feeding on the mountain grasslands surrounding the park.
As you arrive at Torres del Paine, you’ll stop at the ranger station, register, and pay the national park entrance fee (not included). From the park entrance, you’ll drive to the brilliant green Nordenskjöld Lake, Lake Pehoe, and make a quick, windy walk to the famous Salto Grande waterfall. This mild, Torres del Paine easy hike is short, but the view packs a punch. From here, you’ll have a spectacular look at the powerful falls and the Torres del Paine and Massif Paine.
After capturing panoramas of the stunning landscape, you’ll stop at a campsite with picnic tables for lunch. Here, you can enjoy your packed lunch or snacks before you begin the second part of your Torres del Paine tour. Take a short, 11 mile (18 kilometer) drive to another of the park’s highlights — Lago Grey Lookout.
From this viewpoint, you’ll see Glacier Grey and thousands of glittering glacier chunks floating in Lago Grey. In the distance, you’ll see the spiked and broken peaks of the Massif del Paine.
To end the day, you’ll return by private transfer to your hotel in Puerto Natales. Along the way, you’ll make one last stop at Lake Toro Lookout, where you’ll enjoy the amazing ice-capped snowy mountains reflected in the clear blue lake.
