See the famous “foehn” winds on the Lake Nordenskjöld

When you’re hiking up the Francés Valley, don’t forget to stop for a minute and take a look behind you! As you climb higher, it’s awesome to see the famous “foehn” winds zipping around Lake Nordenskjöld like little tornadoes. These occur due to a unique microclimate, in which dry air drifts over the mountaintops and then sweeps down its slope, gaining speed as it gets warmer and approaches the lake. It is quite a sight to behold!

After your hike up to the Francés Valley and Británico lookouts, warm up and recharge your mind and body by sharing memories with other hikers over a hot dinner at the restaurant.

Excellent service and very polite and friendly. The mountain hostels are at top international standards. The best we experienced in Puerto Natales.

Tripadvisor Review

Excellent trekking and a wonderful place with unmissable views. My son and I hiked the W Circuit for 4 days and it was not wasted, everything was just fabulous. The contrast between the mountains and the lakes make it a really special place. It requires a basic level of physical preparation, but nothing that cannot be managed.
