We begin our Day Tour to Torres del Paine National Park by picking you up directly from your hotel in El Calafate at 6:45 am.
Crossing the Patagonian Steppe from North to South, we arrive at the border pass of Cancha Carrera (2,20 hours of traveling), from where we start visiting the beautiful South of Chile until we get into Torres del Paine National Park (“Azules” according to the Tehuelche language, which refers to its predominant colour)
From the moment you get to the Park, we offer trekkings and rides in our 4x4 vehicles.
Among the possible centres of attraction and lookouts than can be visited, we can find:
- Sarmiento de Gamboa Lake (lookout)
- Amarga Lagoon
- Paine River waterfalls
- Panoramic stop with descent of 15 minutes in Superior Viewpoint of Nordenskjold Lake (Panoramic of the Horns)
- Salto Grande (50 minute walk), if the weather permitting, we will continue with the longest walk of 1 hour more towards Lake Nordenskjold to appreciate the Cuernos del Paine very closely.
- Pehoé Lake, panoramic view of the horns
At midday you will enjoy a picnic in the mountain.
We start our return to El Calafate at 5 pm, arriving around 9.00 pm.
