GO see Patagonia · GO live your bucket list · GO where your colleagues can't find you


  • GO see the sunrise light up the famous towers in Torres del Paine

  • GO experience the unique beauty of diverse ecosystems that thrive in this harsh environment

  • GO complete one of the most outstanding treks in the world

The W-Trek in Torres del Paine National Park ignites all five senses as you treat yourself to the most iconic views in Patagonia. Named for its shape on a map, hikers are treated to views of the famous towers at Mirador Torres, Glacier Grey and Mirador Britanico. When not in a valley to one of the famous viewpoints, large lakes with stunning blue water dominate the horizon. A great network of huts makes this trek comfortable, and it is possible to skip or shorten the side trips up the valleys to make this work for various fitness levels.

Patagonia is a harsh environment, and its distance from the equator should not be underestimated. Extremely high winds and rapidly changing weather conditions should be expected.

We have teamed up with local adventure experts in South America to provide you with this amazing adventure.
