  • From El Calafate: Torres del Paine Full Day Tour

    9. From El Calafate: Torres del Paine Full Day Tour

    The day begins with pickup from your hotel in El Calafate, then travels to the border crossing at Cancha Carrera to enter Chile. After you’ve passed through customs, travel the last 80 km towards the breathtaking Torres del Paine National Park. Once inside the park, set out exploring a selection of different trekking trails, accompanied by your local expert guides. Throughout the day, learn about the park’s diverse flora and fauna as you wander through this unique landscape. Some of the highlights on this tour through the Chilean lands, include Lago Sarmiento de Gamboa, Rio Paine Falls, Almirante Nieto Mountains, and Amarga Lagoon. Midway through the day there’s also time to enjoy a picnic lunch to recharge for the rest of the adventure.

    We had a clear day so we saw a lot of beautiful views. Just be prepared to spend the entire day on a bus. The road is VERY bumpy at times and we were very happy to get off when the trip was over. Also, the lunch provided is a meat sandwich and meat empanada with some sweets and a water. There were multiple vegetarians pretty disappointed so make sure you reach out and contact the company directly, not your booking agency, about any food requirements before the trip. The guides on the bus spoke very little English, but once we passed the border into Chile our park guide was very fluent in both English and Spanish. Also make sure to bring enough local currency to pay the park entrance fee. It is about 5,000 Argentinian pasos for two people or 25,000 Chilean pasos per person. In the end we are happy we went.

The trip to Sierra Baguales was excellent, the whole crew was really super nice and took their time in explaining the history and geology of the place, especially regarding the fossils that are there in abundance, and some are old more than 60 million years, which is fascinating. Meanwhile, we saw a few significant birds, including the Condor, and the Black Swan, and also plants that are indigenous to the area, like the Yareta plant or the Calafate plant. We also saw some Guanacos, some were alive, and some were in skelleton form because the pumas ate them, so I got to see the place that is locally called the "Guanacos cemetary". I am so glad I did this tour, because the scenery is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful, and it's really worth every penny since we hiked almost half a day, and enjoyed the scenery and nature along the way. The time passed so quickly because the guides were really funny and positive and we had such a laugh. All in all,I recommend it to be an absolute must.

Great tour! The guides took perfect care of us and were able to provide countless facts, information and stories related to the region. They could answer all our questions - no matter if they were related to volcanoes, the current situation in Chile or the best empanadas in Pucón. The equipment was brand new and we felt completely safe during the trip. I was a little scared of the ice slides, but after helpful explanations by the guides, I could enjoy that part of the descent as well. Thanks to the guides and the good equipment, the whole trek was not that hard. The day before the tour, we had received an email with valuable tips.

A quasi local guide with reflected insight into the local situation of the population. Despite obviously good connections to the local organizers, there was no impression of the biting. Guide was very knowledgeable. Well-coordinated team of driver and guide (photo stops etc.). Generally recommended and worth the money.

We enjoyed Torres del Paine Full Day Tour, made by tour operator W Circuit Patagonia, the 20th.feb. It was a amazing excursion. The guide Mirco gave us a lot of information about country, about Torres.... We stopped at varius sections and had some short treks.

In the end we went to the agency and changed the excursion to the trekking to Torres del Paine, which had been recommended and we loved it!
