Overview & Highlights

Hike for a few days in Torres del Paine National Park, one of the best wilderness walking areas in Chile, and climb to the summit of Osorno, a snow-draped volcano dominating the lake district.

This is a walking holiday, and includes one of Chile’s iconic multi-days treks, known as the W-Trek, and an ascent of its most photogenic volcano, Osorno. A good level of fitness is needed since you’ll be walking for long periods and over tricky, sometimes steep, terrain.  That said, there is nothing overly “technical”, although you will be wearing crampons and using other climbing equipment (all provided) on the climb above the snow line on Osorno. In the southern summer – November to March – you have a good chance of catching some clear, sunny days, promising a magical experience.

Chile, with its long Pacific coastline extending from the northern desert through the lush pastures of the volcano-studded lake district to the glaciers of Patagonia, is one of Latin America’s most rewarding countries for outdoor adventures. There’s a good infrastructure to cater for the demand.  Chileans offer a range of well supported and guided activities including hikes, volcano climbing, river rafting, horse riding and  mountain biking. What Chile perhaps lacks in visible historical culture it makes up for with its exquisite natural landscapes.
