Torres del Paine W Trek
Patagonia Chile
Trek the World's Best Trek
The Torres del Paine W Trek is the world's best multi-day trek without high altitudes, according to Lonely Planet.

They were impressed by:

The Towers (Las Torres)
Three skyscraper granite pillars - the tallest touching 2850m

The Horns (Los Cuernos)
Great razor-backed ribs of pale granite tipped with sharp horns of darker softer rock. In between are deep valleys, through which the W Trek passes.

Luminescent Glacial Lakes
Three of them on the W Trek - Lago Pehoé - the most luminescent; Lago Nordenskjöld, which comes with a long shore-hugging trail; and Lago Grey, which comes with a glacier.

After some twenty years of sharing the W Trek with visitors to Patagonia, we at BlueGreen Adventures have some favorites of our own:

  • Waking up in a tent by the impossibly blue shores of Lago Pehoé, the Paine Massif's barbed peaks in the distance

  • Entering the French Valley, a secret valley hidden in a gigantic cirque of granite and ice.

  • Watching, from Grey Mirador, Grey Glacier's vast highway of ice flow into the Patagonian Ice Cap

  • Swimming in the bracing waters of Lago Nordjenskold on a hot windless day
