The O-Trek in Torres del Paine National Park ignites all five senses as you treat yourself to the most iconic views in Patagonia. This trek is an extension of the shorter, and equally famous, W-Trek. In addition to those iconic views on the W-Trek, the O-Trek offers a journey through the less-explored corner of the parked where more solitude awaits. Among the views are the famous towers at Mirador Torres, the expansive Glacier Grey from Passo John Gardner and Mirador Britanico. The juxtaposition of abrupt ridgelines, glittering glaciers and large lakes with stunning blue water plays with the imagination throughout. Unlike the W-Trek, the O-Trek requires two nights in a campsite, but the tent, sleeping pad and sleeping bag are provided and waiting at each campsite.

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 partner with local adventure experts in South America to provide you with this amazing adventure.
