Description
Torres del Paine is Chile's premier national park. Its peaks and glaciers are complemented by unspoilt forests, rich and varied animal and birdlife, remote valleys and immense, cloud-streaked skies.The Torres del Paine Circuit within the park is one of the world's truly great hikes, an epic journey through magnificent mountain scenery. Added to this, access to the park is easy, trails are clear, and refuges are well positioned for completing much of the route (although hikers will also need to carry a tent). There are many equally spectacular shorter hikes and day hikes in the region. * detailed description of the Torres del Paine Circuit and 10 shorter excursions, including two over the border in Argentina * full background and planning information, including wildlife, history, travel and accommodation in Puerto Natales and Santiago.
