Start with a drive to Pudeto and fall in love with the magic of nature as you see trees sprouting new life. The big picture of the Paine Massif hovering over Lake Nordenskjöld is a powerful perspective. You’ll visit the Salto Grande Waterfall, a raging cascade that channels water between the Nordenskjöld and Pehoé Lakes. With renewed energy, you’ll continue along a path to one of the most humbling views in Torres del Paine National Park, a panorama that features the Los Cuernos Mountains, Mount Paine Grande, and the Francés Valley and its glacier rising straight up from the other side of Lake Nordenskjöld. It is hands down a breathtaking spectacle.

¿Qué podrás conocer?

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.

Paine Massif

A small but striking mountain range that beholds the majority of the Park’s top sights, including the Las Torres Mountains, Mount Cerro Paine, Ascencio Valley, and the Francés Valley.

Francés Valley

This lookout in the middle of the W Circuit boasts unmatchable views. To the west, you can gaze at the Cuernos, Espada, Hoja and Máscara mountains. To the east, the Francés Glacier overhangs Mount Paine Grande. To the north, the jagged Fortaleza and Aleta de Tiburón (shark’s fin) peaks stand out against the sky. As if that wasn’t enough, the valley is immersed in a Nothofagus forest filled with many species of trees and vegetation that produce a variety of flowers and change colors during autumn.

Glacier Francés

A hanging glacier that descends from Mount Paine Grande, located in the Francés Valley.

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.

Salto Grande Waterfall

A magnificent 15m / 50ft waterfall where the Paine River, Lake Nordenskjöld and Lake Pehoé join together. It has a commanding lookout of the striking Los Cuernos Mountains.
