W Explore - Reserva Las Torres

W Explore

5 days / 4 nights in mountain hostels, camping, hotel or mixed

(Guided or Unguided Options*)

Discover corners of Torres del Paine that few people have seen before.

Explore the lesser-known places of extreme Patagonia

Be prepared to fall in love with Chile’s Patagonia. The pictures speak for themselves but could never do justice to the sights, feelings, excitement and pure awe that you will experience while adventuring through unbelievably big mountains, deep valleys, and mysterious forests.

This adventure opens up parts of Torres del Paine that have been little explored. You’ll have the unique experience of summiting a mountain and taking in an incredible view of the Las Torres Mountains while you’re proudly standing on its peak. You’ll walk next to the Park’s other famous granite peaks, the Los Cuernos Mountains, and even discover the surprises of the little-known Bader Valley. And to bring the experience full circle, you’ll say goodbye to the Park with an incredible day near the Grey Glacier, which extends into the horizon and is the final tip of the Patagonia Southern Ice Field.

What will you see?

Paine Grande

Made up of four summits, Paine Grande is recognized as one of the most beautiful mountains in the world. The highest peak towers at 3050m / 10000ft, making it the tallest mountain in the Macizo Paine Range and also the technically hardest mountain to climb in the entire Torres del Paine National Park.

Los Cuernos

These three mountains put up a fight with the Las Torres Mountains over prettiest in the Park. Standing at 2600m / 8500ft, 2400m / 7900ft and 2200m / 7200ft, the different types of rocks that make up this massif create a stark, beautiful, and multi-colored contrast. A 700m / 3000ft wide slab of granite crosses the middle of these uniquely shaped mountains.

Las Torres

Amongst the most famous mountains in the world, these three towering, granite peaks soar in the blue sky at 2850m / 9350ft, 2800m / 9200ft, and 2600m / 8500ft. Molded by pure glacial force, these are the breath-taking towers that give the Park its name.

Glaciar Grey

This is the largest glacier in Torres del Paine National Park, measuring 6km / 4mi wide, 30m / 100ft tall and 19km / 12mi long. Its floating icebergs and glacial moraines are just as picturesque as the glacier itself, which tumbles down from the massive Southern Ice Field. To see this gorgeous ice formation up close, you can take a boat ride, a kayak tour or an ice-hiking excurision.

Bader Valley

Located between the Cuernos Mountain Hostel and Mount Almirante Nieto, this stunning valley offers incredible views of numerous granite peaks.

Lake Nordenskjöld

Uniting Pudete with Paine Grande, this turquoise lake serves as the starting point for ecstatic trekkers. It sits under the Los Cuernos Mountains and has an average depth of 200m / 650ft and covers an area of 28 km² / 11mi². It is named after Otto Nordenskjöld (1869-1928), a Swedish-Finnish explorer who dedicated himself to the study of Antarctica, Greenland, Chile, and Peru.

Mount Almirante Nieto

Located right between the emblematic Las Torres and Los Cuernos Mountains, various hanging glaciers tumble from its summit and its beauty deserves its own attention. It has the special feature of facing multiple directions and having a unique look from each – if you see it from one angle, you likely won’t recognize it from the next!

Puma Cave

After a 20 minute walk to the Puma Cave you will find this large rock formation is equipped with routes for beginner, experienced, and expert climbers. There are multiple routes, so anyone can truly enjoy their day in the life of a Patagonian rock climber.
