Torres del Paine
How we explore
Our explorations provide travelers with an in depth experience of this austral territory, for which we have outlined six different exploration zones, each with its own set of unique geographic, cultural and biosphere characteristics.
All exploration have been designed in order to gradually unveil the territory’s essence – either on foot, horse back or by van. Each day, one of our guides will gladly help you choose the right exploration for your interests and provide further information on each zone.
Our explorations, always led by a bilingual guide from our Explora Guide School, take place in English or Spanish for groups of maximum of eight travelers.
Our walks have different length and difficulty levels. Those that take the full day give us the privilege of having lunch in the middle of nature, while those that take half a day allow us to come back to Explora to make a different exploration during the afternoon. Horseback riding is meant for beginners, advanced, and expert riders; therefore, there are no excuses for not living the Patagonian experience riding through the Park along with our gauchos.
EXPLORING TORRES DEL PAINE, PATAGONIA
We recommend a minimum of five nights to have an exploration experience in which you can really know what Patagonia is, although we are sure you will feel that more time was needed to discover the wonders of Torres del Paine National Park. Six nights are a good option to get a thorough knowledge of the area.
One of the most popular circuit is the mystic W that goes around the trails that surround the Paine Massif. This circuit requires at least five days for completion. Our explorations to the Torres base, the Grey Glacier and the Valle Francés (French Valley) follow part of this circuit. A good option is to combine some of these explorations with others to less familiar places within the Park, either walking or horseback riding.
Check out our recommendations for proper clothing and to enjoy to the fullest all the explorations.
