6 Days & 5 Nights

     The 'W' trek is the name given to the W shaped beaten track that interlinks the 3 Granite Paine Towers, the French Valley, and the Grey Glacier.  The trek is approximately 70 kilometers (43 miles) in total distance and is one of the most scenic treks in the world.

    The Active W Trek program is a popular, camping style  multi-day adventure program.  You can prepare and do the W trek on your own, however doing it with us  will save you time, and your Patagonia visit will  be well organized and efficient.  Our reservation's team will be intially assisting you in understanding your program and will guide you in your plans.   We will then be advising you in your logistical and physical preparations. And when you finally arrive here, in Puerto Natales,  our Garden Domes hotel team will host you and provide trek briefings.  The next day, our  Chiletour team of  guides and drivers will be assisting you on your first day as you get to know Torres del Paine for the first time,  and  after your Base of the Tower hike you will staying at the Tiny House  right at the bottom portion of the Paine Massif where you will have one most beautiful views of the Paine Towers.
