Day 1: Drive to Paine. Grey Boat and hike to Pehoe:
Arrive into Puerto Natales. Meet guide and the rest of the group at our office and take a private transfer via the new road into Torres del Paine arriving at the Park's entrance in just over an hour. Drive to Grey Lake and board the Grey II launch which takes you through the normally iceberg-choked waters of Grey Lake and up to the disembarkation point close to Grey Glacier. After a walk to the Grey Glacier lookout, we will continue hiking down the beautiful forested trail towards Lake Pehoe. This trail skirts the edge of the immense Grey Glacier and the mountain and glacier views are incredible. After a packed lunch, continue on to the turquoise waters of Lake Pehoe, one of the prettier lakes in the Park. Our destination is the new refugio situated by Lake Pehoe. Accommodation and dinner in the refugio that offers dorm-style rooms with shared bathrooms. There is a bar, restaurant and small shop. Lunch and dinner included (wine/drinks available at extra cost).
Day 2: Hike French Valley and on to Cuernos
After breakfast, we will pack our day packs with cameras and packed lunches and head out towards the French Valley and along the edges of Lake Nordenskjold. A full day's hike we will enjoy fantastic views of the amphitheatre of granite peaks that make up this enclosed valley as well as the waterscapes below including lakes Pehoe, Scottsburg, Toro, and Nordenskjold. After some time enjoying the scenery we will have a picnic lunch before pressing on along the turquoise lakeshores to Refugio Cuernos situated in a beautiful location nestled between the mountains and the lake. Night in the private cabins (single and double available) with en suite facilities belonging to the local refugio. Dinner in nearby refugio. All meals included (drinks available at extra cost).
Day 3: Hike to Las Torres and comfortable Hosteria
Today we will hike out along the lake shores with the imposing peaks of Paine to our left. Our walk takes us on a dramatic journey across the Park with its southern beech forests and incredible mountain and lake views. Our destination is the Hosteria Las Torres, a 4* hotel with all the services expected of a top hotel. Spa also available. Arrive early evening at the hosteria and enjoy a pisco sour in the hotel bar before unpacking and relaxing a little before dinner. Night in Hosteria with en suite rooms. All meals included (wine/drinks available at extra cost).
Day 4: Hike to the base of the Towers. Puerto Natales
Today's hiking is our most arduous but worthwhile as we climb to the Towers themselves. A roundtrip hike we will climb up into Ascencio Valley and through beautiful old growth beech forests to a rock moraine just under the towers. A steep climb over the moraine will reward us with one of the most spectacular views in the park and weather permitting we will enjoy our last trail lunch at this amazing vantage point. On return to the trailhead, enjoy a glass of pisco sour before joining our comfortable transfer vehicle for the drive back to Puerto Natales. Accommodation at the beautifully situated eco-hotel Altiplanico situated close to Last Hope Sound with incredible lake and mountain views and comfortable accommodation with en suite facilities. Dinner will be at leisure in one of Puerto Natales' many excellent restaurants. Breakfast and lunch included today.
