A hiker's dream, this national park contains huge granite mountains surrounded by clear lakes and a series of well-maintained trails that vary in degree of difficulty.

To get a close view of this amazing set of granite spires you need to hike for about 4 hours to the base of the Torres. The view is breathtaking especially, when the weather is clear. You hike to the base, along with lots of...More

Every where you tour there is a view. We were fans of yellowstone and Yosemite, but this is at least up there and in some ways more impressive. Don't miss it out but try and do it at your own pace by hiring a car...More

If you want an experience like no other, go to Patagonia. It will get into your skin and never leave you. It will bring you to tears in a good way. You will see first hand why Chile calls this national park their gem.

Beautiful/breathtaking scenery, but it is a shame how poorly the park is managed. The trails, mainly on the W have been highly eroded by trekkers, and there is a huge garbage and human waste problem (which has led to closing a least one campsite Campimento...More

Questions & Answers
We have 6 nights 7 days allocated for O circuit. Can anyone recommend ideal iternary? Hoping to stay in refugios as much as we can so that we can avoid carrying extra load of sleeping bags, tents and food. Is it possible? We are reasonably fit and experience hikers. Few other questions: 1) If we have booked the refugios in advance and weather delays our iternary, would the refugios let us check in a day late? 2) Can camp Seron be skipped? Would it be too long to reach to Dickeson Refugio in one day given that we start our hike early in the morning? 3) What is the advantage of doing O circuit "Clockwise" over "Counter-Clockwise"? 4) Did anybody include the glacier hike (a side excursion from grey camp)? Was it worth spending an additional day? 5) Is late October busy time for the Refugios to be booked in advance? 6) Is there any advantage to start the trek from Paine Grande as opposed to Hotel Torres? Thanks

1) The only delay can be introduced if bad weather on the John Gardner Pass and it officially closed. I assume the Park Ranger can radio the Refugio and notify them. 2) No. See official map. Torres to Seron 4hours, Seron... More
