The Cerro Paine + Trekking Horseback Riding Tour will begin by getting to know your horse better from the beginning and you will become familiar with its smooth, powerful and instinctive rhythm. As you make your way up the western slope of Cerro Paine, our expert baqueanos will help you face the exciting challenge of climbing its beautiful trail.

Keep your eyes open and pay attention to the birds you will see as you enter one of the oldest forests in the park, full of native Lenga trees. You will walk calmly until you leave the forest, where a surprise awaits you. The trees disappear and in their place are the famous Towers, along with other impressive views of the lake and the valley.

The last section of the Cerro Paine Horseback Riding Tour will surprise you with a trek where you will conquer one of the most privileged points to see the Torres del Paine with a perspective from above. It is ideal to take the best photos that will make you remember this unique trip.

The Tour is guided by our baqueanos, you will love knowing their culture, the true blood of Patagonia.

This guided tour can start in the morning. The departure is from the manger/horse stable located a few meters from Hotel Las Torres and must be reserved in advance.

What is there to enjoy?

Ascencio Valley

This valley builds increasing excitement, as its magestic views lead to Las Torres Base Viewpoint. It features the Oggioni Mountains in the distance, a windy river below, a grassy slope on one side, a rocky incline on the other, and a trail that gets steeper and steeper until you enter a native forest of lenga and Antarctic beech trees.

Azul Lagoon

Located on the east side of Torres del Paine, it is a less traveled part of the park despite having one of the best views of the iconic towers. It is the only place in the Park where you can get a full view of the Las Torres Mountains without having to hike.

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.

Lake Sarmiento

Named after the Spanish explorer Sarmiento de Gamboa, it has an average depth of 350m / 1150ft and covers an area of 86 km² / 33mi². It belongs to the same basin as Amarga Lagoon.
