The O Circuit takes all the sights of the popular W Circuit, and then kicks it up a notch. This hike includes all the wonders the northern side of the park has to offer, letting you experience a whole new Torres del Paine. With very few hikers, peace, solace, and serenity reign powerfully in the mountain breeze.
While the W sections of the hike can include overnights at mountain hostels, the O portion has sections that can only be camped. Your intense connection with nature during these days will bestow you with moments, wild lands, and drastic photo-ops that are seen by few people. Some of the highlights include traversing daisy fields, crossing rivers, and climbing the astonishing John Garner Pass.
The O Circuit gets its name from the way it “closes” the W Circuit. This hike will push your limits, but the self-satisfaction and pure amazement at the raw terrain will undoubtedly make it all worth it.
