This tour combines the Park’s “must see” with a special twist. Horseback riding in Torres del Paine offers a unique and exhilarating experience. Start the day in the stables, learning about the horses, and then start your ride across typical Patagonian lands of low vegetation and wide open spaces. You can let the horse walk freely and instinctively, and lose yourself in the impressive, mesmerizing views of the Ascencio Valley. When you reach the Chileno Mountain Hostel, you’ll leave the horses behind and they’ll patiently wait for you to climb up to the Las Torres Base Viewpoint. After crossing a dense forest, you’ll hit a rocky trail that eventually leads you through a moraine of huge rocks and reveals the highly anticipated granite towers. Here we’ll take time to process the magnificent sight, eat lunch, and take the iconic photo of the three peaks soaring over the ice blue lagoon.

¿Qué podrás conocer?

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.

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.

Native Lenga Forest

One of Patagonia’s iconic trees, Nothofagus pumilio thrives in areas with low temperatures and heavy snow. Lenga woodland provides a habitat for many animals such as Magellanic woodpeckers, Austral parakeets, Chilean flickers and other forest birds.
