Experience Torres Del Paine National Park

This challenging hut-to-hut hike through the all-encompassing wilds of Patagonia’s national park is a never ending panorama of granite peaks, bottomless teal lakes and glaciers. Our supernatural adventure revolves around incredible forest trails, surreal picnic spots and nights of camaraderie in the refugios (mountain huts) along the W Trek. Feel the pure power of the elements, deep wilderness and the vertical demands of Chile’s famed hiking route.


Hike Patagonia’s Famed W Trek

Sleep in the World’s First Geodesic Dome Hotel

On Magdalena Island, we observe the antics of the knee-high Magellanic penguin rookery. We also spend a day tracking pumas and learning about their behavior, habitat and resilience. At a working sheep station we have an authentic Patagonian BBQ, sheep-shearing lesson and demonstration by the sheepdogs. We can expect a cozy, rejuvenating experience in the suite domes at Patagonia EcoCamp with opportunities to stretch our minds and body through meditation and yoga sessions.

This trip starts in Punta Arenas, Chile (airport code: PUQ) and finishes in Punta Arenas, Chile (airport code: PUQ).

Repacking for the W Trek

Our guide will provide each of us with a 20L dry bag which our porters will carry over the course of the three day trek. Don’t worry, there will be instruction and discussion on what to pack for this leg of the trip. We will also be carrying a daypack for immediate essentials during the hike (rain jacket, gloves, hat, sunglasses, boxed lunch, water). Luggage not required during the trek will be safely secured at Patagonia EcoCamp.

Please note: the porters walk ahead of our group, so we won’t have access to any items we pack in our dry bags until we reach the refugio.

How We Support You

Ready for a big adventure? We’re in it together. On this trip, we hike many hours a day for multiple days and reach impressive altitudes. Yes, it’s a challenge, but you’re never alone. Like thousands of women before you, you’ll draw on strength you didn’t know you had and come out feeling like the goddess you are.

Still have questions or concerns? Let’s talk about it.
