Las Torres Patagonia announces “10 Volunteers For 10 Days” campaign - Reserva Las Torres


Led by the Patagonian family-owned property in Torres del Paine National Park, ten travelers will win the chance to participate in a voluntourism trip to the world-renowned hiking destination.

 Patagonia, Chile, January 2024 – Today, Las Torres Patagonia announces “10 Volunteers for 10 Days,” a social media campaign and contest that offers the chance to win an all-expense paid voluntourism trip to the Eighth Wonder of the World in Chile.

From April 6th to 11th and April 14th to 19th, the ten winners will experience the wonders of Chilean Patagonia while supporting the restoration of the Base Torres trail in the UNESCO Biosphere Park Torres del Paine National Park, which is crucial to experiencing the destination as well as the ecosystem’s survival.

The renowned Torres del Paine National Park in Chile’s Southern Ice Field has some of the most impressive mountains in the world. Adventure seekers and nature lovers from around the world travel to see the destination’s famous Torres del Paine, or “three towers,” soaring mountains and bright blue icebergs. Las Torres Patagonia’s “10 Volunteers for 10 Days” voluntourism trip will help restore the famous trail that is deeply eroded and damaged. The project will contribute to a new era of gentle-grade trails that will directly impact the ecosystem’s continued legacy.

“Las Torres Patagonia has a generational commitment to the regeneration and longevity of this beautiful Chilean region,” said Josian Yaksic, CEO of Las Torres Patagonia. “More than ever, it is prudent to acknowledge the changing landscape and take action for its survival. We are thrilled to welcome passionate travelers to not only contribute to the future of one of the most beautiful destinations in the world, but also experience it firsthand through voluntourism.”
