Full description
Following a 2-hour drive you will arrive to Hotel las Torres. Following a safety briefing from your guide, the excursion will begin. The track takes you up into the Asencio River Valley, and 2 hours later you will arrive in El Chileno, a camping site where your hike will continue through a dense forested area. There you can also admire a small stream which flows from the Almirante Nieto peak.

The path brings you to a moraine, where the slope steepens until the Paine Towers viewpoint, which sits at 890 meters above sea level. At the viewpoint you will enjoy incredible views of the three towers, and will also have some time to have lunch and rest for your return journey.

If weather conditions permit it, you will be able to observe one of the most spectacular views worldwide. You will return along the same path to “Hosteria Las Torres”, where your bus will be waiting. Your approximate time of arrival back to Puerto Natales is 9:00PM.

Die beiden Guides Anna und Felipe waren super nett, hilfsbereit und haben sich klasse um die ganze Gruppe gekümmert. Der letzte Kilometer der Wanderung war sehr hart, daher waren es unglaublich klasse, dass die beiden einen motiviert haben und jeder in seinem eigenen Tempo wandern konnte. Trotzdem haben die beiden darauf geachtet, dass die Gruppe zusammen bleibt. Ein klasse Ausflug und der Ausblick am Ende entschädigt die Anstrengungen davor! Wir können den Anbieter nur empfehlen!
