I did the W trek with three other friends. I have no words to describe such a beautiful, happy and peaceful place. It is definitely something you must experience at least once in a lifetime. The long hikes can be killer but the view, the tranquility, the nature, makes it all worth it. I will definitely be back and to... More

Beautiful national park, good camping. The front side, the W, is much busier than the back. Walking over the mountain pass to the view of Glacier Gray was spectacular.

Torres del Paine, in hindsight, was the climax of my Patagonia trip. The park features a great variety of climates and landscapes, all amazingly beautiful. I would recommend anyone to do the full circuit (or even Q) treks. In my experience the W portion is not half of what the park has to offer, and surely a day trip to... More

What an amazing place. Whether you can hike or just go on a tour, it's worth it! Words cannot describe how gorgeous the views are. There are many people there visiting but that doesn't take away from the breathtaking beauty.

The most beautiful place I have ever been. Very remote, no cell service and that comes with the most captivating mountain and glacier views I have ever seen. I need to go back. It's hard to stop taking photos when everything looks so incredible.

2 days is not nearly enough to spend in Torres del Paine, but it's all I had! The first day I spent trekking to see the Torres. The hike is somewhat intense at times, particularly near the end, but totally worth it. The towers are gorgeous and there is so much to see on the way there. The second day... More

We did the W route from east to west. I can't pick a favorite day of the hike since all were so breathtaking. The trail was not difficult, but be prepared for wind and rocky terrain. I would love to do the whole circuit, but I have many more places to see in the world.

Throw away your Lonely Planet trekking guide now, because it would be a waste to spend only 4-5 rushed days trekking the W. Besides, the camping information in Lonely Planet is woefully out of date. There is no place in this park worth skipping over.

We stayed at the Rio Serrano Hotel which was ok, but not great for vegetarians - though Hotel Lago Grey where we had lunch came up trumps with a tasty and imaginative veggie meal. The best thing about the Rio Serrano is the view of the Cuerno des Hornos - completely awe-inspiring in every sense of the word. At one... More

This place is not to be missed. The scenery is so breathtaking that it almost seems fake. We were lucky enough to be there on a very clear day and we got to see the mountains, lakes and waterfalls in sparkling fresh color. A giant rainbow hung over the landscape the entire time we were there. No matter how far... More
