THE MAGIC OF GRANITE AND GLACIERS
A worldwide icon of Chilean Patagonia is Torres del Paine National Park, a place filled with amazing mountains, trails, glaciers, rivers and diverse wildlife. A perfect oasis for climbers and adventurers from all over the world!
With an official area of 227, 298 hectares, this Chilean paradise was created in May, 1959 with the name of Lago Grey National Tourism Park. It was not until two years later that it became recognized as Torres del Paine National Park. In 1978, it was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, becoming a member of a select group of representative areas of the world’s most diverse ecosystems. A privilege of only a few!
Turquoise waters, glaciers, unique rock sculptures and unpredictable climates are all part of this Biosphere Reserve, a true natural treasure. Although there are many activities inside and around the national park, trekking is the main alternative that visitors choose to experience while visiting. With 17hrs of sunlight during the summer months and the captivating feeling of solitude in autumn and winter, Torres del Paine National Park has it all! If you’re up for an extra challenge, hike to the famous Base of the Towers at sunrise to see the three granite peaks glisten with magnificent purples and reds- an experience that only few have the opportunity to live!
Not everything is trekking in Torres del Paine National Park. The calm and cold waters of Grey Lake set the perfect backdrop for glacier navigations and kayaking trips through the cobalt-blue icebergs. A mammoth natural ice structure of approximately 6kms wide and more than 30mts high, Glacier Grey is the perfect environment for any outdoor adventure and if you’re feeling extra motivated, the option to ice hike is available!
